MacKenzie Porter & Willa Bean: Preparing Your Dog for a New Baby, Willa’s N

In this episode of In The Vet’s Office, actress and country musician MacKenzie Porter (Thinkin’ Bout You, Pickup) stops by with her 5-year-old Maltipoo Willa Bean. At the time of this interview, MacKenzie was days away from giving birth. Dr. Josie & MacKenzie discuss preparing your dog for a new baby in the household, Willa Bean’s near fatal gastrointestinal issues and a scary trip to the emergency vet during a Nashville ice storm. Dr. Josie also sits down with her co-host, Canadian radio personality Shannon Ella, to dive into the Case of the Week – a dog that came in sick and Dr. Josie couldn’t believe her eyes when its x-ray came back. Dr. Josie takes listener calls, gives advice on finding a solid pet-sitter, recounts her friend’s horror story with a not-so-great pet-sitter, and tells one caller what to do about her dog having accidents in its bed. Dr. Josie and Shannon wrap up the episode with PAW & ORDER. The segment where Dr. Josie gives a list of things she’d NEVER do with her pets. This week’s PAW & ORDER focuses on what Dr. Josie would keep out of her pets’ reach that they like to eat but shouldn’t. If you liked this episode, please leave a rating & subscribe!
