Show Details Host

Host: John Rossi, DVM, MA and Carlos Aragon, DVM

Pet Health Talk is a brief excursion into the world of veterinary medicine. Hosts Dr. John Rossi and Dr. Carlos Aragon discuss some of the latest news in veterinary medicine and take pre-recorded calls from listeners of their regional radio program. The program features interesting “did you knows” as well as cases of the week, timely topics and warnings for your pets. Other veterinarians drop in occasionally to serve as guest hosts. Drs. Rossi and Aragon have created a lively show that is both highly informational as well as enjoyable to listen to, as they often jokingly banter with each other about otherwise serious topics…and “translate” for each other when the topics get complicated!
