A Dog's Life with Anna Webb

Show Notes

This week Anna is joined by Blue Cross Veterinary Surgeon, Roisin Bolger, who is talking about the Charity’s #EndTheTrend petition. It calls for the UK's leading brands to commit by the end of 2022 to phasing out the use of any brachycephalic pets in their future advertisements.

Flat face breeds have become hugely popular and the Charity has seen an exponential rise in abandoned French Bulldogs, Boston Terrier, British Bulldogs in the past two years as owners were unaware of their possible health conditions and cannot afford to pay for their vet bills.

The Blue Cross has been helping all animals since 1897 re-homing unwanted or abandoned pets, offering vet care and promoting animal welfare. It’s our responsibility as a nation of animal lovers to do just this!

What is A Dog's Life with Anna Webb?

Dogs.

They’re companions, guardians, and much much more – they complete us. And they just might save us from ourselves.

Anna Webb explores all levels of modern dog ownership and brings to life why every dog is extraordinary.

She speaks to scientists and experts - people who have and are changing our understanding of dogs - on everything from emotional intelligence to nutrition to behaviour, delving deep into subjects like homeopathy, telepathic communication and the pet food scandal.

It's thought provoking, alternative, and not a little subversive.
