What to look for on Smart Talk Monday, March 24, 2014:
More than half of American families have a pet. Cats are the most popular household pet, closely followed by dogs.
The pet is often considered a member of the family and as a result, most people want their pets to be healthy and happy.
So how do we keep them that way?
Veterinarian Dr. Ben Zimmerman of Companion Animal Hospital in Elizabethtown appears on Monday's Smart Talk to answer your questions on pet health and pet care.
As warmer temperatures approach and fleas and ticks latch on to animals, we'll find out how to protect your dog or cat.
Are there any conditions that vets are seeing more often recently?
How to choose a pet is another topic we'll touch on.
