Pet Parenting Television Series Offers Solutions for Cat Hairballs and Relief for Dog and Cat Allergy Symptoms
ARDMORE, Pa., June 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Dr. Shelby Neely, known as “The Cat Doctor” from her award-winning website AskTheCatDoctor.com, will appear on The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television June 12 and 13, 2012 to discuss the important, but often overlooked, topic of grooming pets.
This series highlights the unique FURminator deshedding tool and the company’s other professionally designed, in-home grooming products. The first segment, airing on June 12, 2012, discusses people’s allergies to their pets. By reducing excess shedding through proper pet grooming techniques, many allergic owners can live comfortably with pets. In an article discussing the topic, Dr. Neely wrote:
“During my 20 years of practice, I have often received a call from a cat owner who has been diagnosed with allergies and told by their dermatologist to get rid of the cat. I’m not telling you to ignore your dermatologist’s advice. However, I have seen many cat owners with fairly severe cat allergy symptoms learn to live very comfortably with their pets.”
The second segment, airing June 13, 2012, focuses on preventing, instead of treating, cat hairballs. Dr. Neely visits a Florida animal shelter and describes hairballs as not only messy and unsightly, but potentially dangerous for your cat. As she wrote for the Cat Fancier’s Association newsletter, “While hairballs can be harmless, they often are a source of real discomfort for your cat, leading to vomiting, constipation or even intestinal obstructions, requiring surgery.”
Check your local listings and tune in June 12 and 13, 2012 at 7 a.m. (EDT) for this one-of-a-kind series on The Balancing Act airing on Lifetime Television. It’s a must-see for pet parents everywhere who want to live in harmony with their pets.
