A Dog's Life with Anna Webb

Show Notes

This week Anna is joined by Kate Bendix, a friend for over a decade, to discuss worms! Kate runs Worm Counts for Dogs, an online service enabling you to test your dog for worm eggs. We discuss why doing a worm count test four times a year will give you a good insight into how your current wormer is working. It will also allow you to only worm your dog when a worm count test comes back with a positive result. Choose between a worm egg count, a lungworm count or their combo worm and lungworm count tests. Kate explains why there’s also a test for Giardia, and why #TestBeforeTreat is a manta embraced more commonly in the EU. 

We chat about diet and why feeding raw helps keep your dog’s immune system healthy and flea and ticks bites minimised. Kate has written books including My Itchy Dog to help pet parents find natural solutions to stop the the itch. Kate also authored the book The Dog Diet and writes for various companies and newspapers.

What is A Dog's Life with Anna Webb?


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.
