Karen and Renee interview veterinarian, Dr. Tammy Anderson, who is also very knowledgeable about behavior. Dr. Anderson talks about how she helps her clients open up so she can get a complete and detailed description of what medical issues the dog might have, and how that could possibly relate to their dog’s change in behavior. Dr. Anderson practices at North Star Vets, a Veterinary Emergency Trauma and Specialty Center in Robbinsville, New Jersey. She takes on clients only with a veterinary referral.
