Sassy little Piggy Azalea joins us this week as we talk about pigs as pets – they’re intelligent, active, lovable, and very social pets – if you train them. What happens what you don’t? Find out in Episode 13.

Dr. Will McCauley and Dr. Karen Fling also talk about respiratory diseases that all pets (including pigs), and especially cats, should be protected against. Remember: Prevention is easier than treatment (and much more affordable).
