Weds., July 27 at 2:00 pm, repeating at 7:00 pm Join Shelly Wade, one of your new Hometown, Alaska hosts and her guest Anchorage veterinarian Dr. Shannon DiRuzzo for a discussion on you and your pets. Everything from finding pet that's right for you to caring for older pets, listeners are encouraged to call in with their favorite pet stories or to ask questions of the vet.
In most parts of the country, pets owners don't have to worry about having access to a veterinarian. But on Alaska's North Slope, the community has been without the services of a full-time resident vet for about eight years. So many locals were pleasantly surprised when the North Slope Borough Health Department announced recently they had finally filled the position.
