On Sunday January 25th we are honored to welcome Dr. Mike Petty, DVM, CVPP, CVMA, CAAPM, CCRT. As a world-renowned expert on veterinary pain management, founder of Arbor Pointe Veterinary Hospital in Michigan, a faculty member of the Canine Rehabilitation Institute, immediate-past president of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management (IVAPM) and co-author of the 2014 American Animal Hospital Association Pain Guidelines (among many other distinctions), Dr. Petty’s steadfast and heartfelt dedication to pain relief is creating better lives for pets and humans alike.
On this episode we will discuss Dr. Petty's upcoming book, Dr. Mike Petty’s Pain Relief for Dogs, and how the insight it provides can help Tripawd dogs lead a long, happy, pain-free life.

*Dr. Petty's upcoming book is titled Pain Relief for Dogs. While this show will primarily focus on canine pain management, he is a veterinarian and welcomes questions about cats.
Call in with your questions or post them below no later than Friday, January 23.
Join us in the live Tripawds Chat room during the show!
*You do not need to call in to listen to the show. Only call if you have questions you would like answered live on the air.
I think one of the most important topics we should address is how to distinguish common pain indicators from the side effects of pain medication.
Heavy panting, restlessness, lethargy, lack of appetite...are our pups in pain? Or just too doped up?
You just wish they could talk sometimes. But since they can't, we need to know some tips for telling if our dogs are under-medicated, or just feeling the side effects of drugs!
Hey folks just a reminder that this weekend we'll have pain management expert Dr. Petty on Tripawd Talk Radio! Got questions? Post them here and we'll ask him on Sunday at 6pm Eastern / 3pm Pacific.
Hey folks, be sure to tune in tomorrow to Tripawd Talk Radio at 6pm Eastern and get your questions about pain management for your Tripawd answered. You can post them here for Dr. Petty, he's quite the expert!

I have a few questions regarding my quadpawd, Seven. He's a 12 1/2 yr old 100 lb American Pit Bull Terrier.
How do you know if your dog is experiencing pain, or is just feeling "old and tired"? Seven has arthritis, and is sometimes just a "little bit off" (slower, seems to get tired quicker). Do I assume it's pain if he's eating well and otherwise seems okay?
What are good options for senior dogs who can't tolerate anti-inflammatories (specifically known bad reaction to Rimadyl) other than Tramadol and Gabapentin?
