Good episode? Give it some love!
Hello Dog Lovers! This promises to be another amazing episode! I am a huge fan of Dr. Katie Kangas and I’m sure you’ll agree. She’s just a wealth of knowledge!

Dr. Kangas owns and operates Integrative Veterinary Care, a private practice in San Diego, California, offering holistic and integrative health care options for pets. Her areas of special interest include nutrition, functional medicine, dental health, and pain management. Dr. Kangas has authored several articles published in veterinary journals and pet magazines, and shares her passion for pet wellness education by lecturing and presenting locally, nationally and internationally.

Dr. Kangas is specifically going to explain how glyphosate is affecting not only us, but our dogs.

Why don’t you start with an overview of what glyphosate is why it’s so toxic.

I get why GMO foods would have high levels of glyphosate, but I understand that the non GMO foods have even higher amounts? Can you explain?

What is glyphosate actually doing to our dogs’ bodies?

You’ve used the term that our dogs are becoming “toxic sponges” and are exposed to glyphosate even more than we are. Please elaborate.

I know that you’ve written articles about glyphosate’s reactivity to gluten. Can you share your findings?

In addition to how our food is grown, is the way it’s cooked and processed. How does cooking or processing lead to toxicity?

Can you give us the stats on the glyphosate/antibiotics found in food animals?

What is the impact of the diet choices we’re feeding our dogs?

What diseases in dogs are on the rise that you believe have a direct link to glyphosate?

You recommend that we all get our dogs tested for glyphosate levels?

HRI has done glyphosate testing on dogs. What were some of the findings?

What foods have the highest amounts?

What about treats?

What about feeding organic?

What are some of the solutions?

Dr. Katie, where can everyone find out more information about you and Integrative Veterinary Care?
