BCVSp launches podcasts for animal owners

Your Vet Specialist, the public face of the British College of Veterinary Specialists (BCVSp), has launched a new podcast platform to give animal owners the opportunity to listen and learn from high quality audible veterinary content while they are on the go. https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/speak-to-a-vet-specialist/id1481119149

The first Your Vet Specialist podcast series, available now, gives animal owners an insight into the role of the Veterinary Specialist and how they support primary practice vets in helping to provide owners with the best specialist care and treatment for their animals, whether they are pets, horses or farm stock. They are a useful resource for primary practitioners to direct their clients to when further information on a specific topic is required.

BCVSp trustee Myra Forster-van Hijfte, who is responsible for Your Vet Specialist’s public outreach programme, said: “Podcasts are a great addition to our website, giving animal owners a convenient and highly engaging way to learn more about the Veterinary Specialist’s role. The advantage of audible platforms is that they enable content to be accessed more or less wherever you are or what you are doing. We hope our listeners will enjoy our first series as much as the team did making them.”

In the first episode of the series Trustee of the BCVSp James Swann speaks to Dr Rosanne Jepson about dialysis in dogs and cats. A specialist in internal medicine in dogs and cats, Dr Jepson explains why dialysis might be needed in pets for treatment of kidney disease and whether it’s ethical to do this treatment in animals.

In episode two BCVSp trustee Celia Marr speaks to James Wood, Professor of Equine and Farm Animal Science at the University of Cambridge about zoonotic diseases and their importance for animal and human health in Africa.

Your Vet Specialist is the home of transparent, straight-talking advice for animal owners: https://yourvetspecialist.org/
