Hi Katie,

Thank you so much for having Dr. Josie on this podcast. I have shared it with a few friends that will be interested as well. I have followed Dr. Jean Dodds vaccine protocol with both of my dogs.

I would be interested in topics that looks into our holistic animal health. Also, intrigued with your brief comments on myasims (sp??)

Knowledge is power.
