“At Your Service” Edition: Pet Care, National Service Dog Month and Emotional Support Animals

Paul Leary

09/29/15 - Tuesday’s Topical Currents is an “At Your Service” edition about . . .  pet care.


We feature veterinarian Dr. Ian Kupke of the Sabal Chase Animal Clinic and dog trainer and behaviorist Edel Miedes.  We’ll take calls about pet care of course, and also recognize “National Service Dog Month.” We’ll find out how these differ from the increasingly popular “Emotional Support Animals, who have no special training. That’s Topical Currents . . . Tuesday at 1pm.

WLRN Radio's Joseph Cooper says producing and hosting Topical Currents is the most rewarding experience of his long radio career, which began at the University of Missouri School of Journalism in the 1970s.
Richard Ives came to WLRN in September 2000 to begin a new career in radio. Born in Fort Lauderdale, his family moved to Long Island, New York, where he grew up. After graduation from college and an unsatisfying stint in a job that, as he puts it, "paid the bills but for which I had no passion" he found himself contemplating a midlife career change after being laid-off.
