First hour: Unleashed - The Pet Show 

Second hour: Second Opinion LIVE!

This month on Unleashed, we honor Veterans Day by telling the story of a rescue dog named Hans who is providing emotional support to local veterans. Plus, when patients go into hospice care, their beloved pets are often left behind and families may be unable to care for them. A national organization is working to reunite patients with their pets, when the unconditional love of a dog or cat matters most. We’ll talk to the founder of Pet Peace of Mind. And Dr. Stephanie Ravin from Stone Ridge Veterinary Hospital will be in studio to answer your questions about pet health and behavior. Our guests:

  • Dr. Stephanie Ravin, BVM&S, veterinarian at Stone Ridge Veterinary Hospital
  • Dianne McGill, founder and president of Pet Peace of Mind

In our second hour, it's Second Opinion LIVE! Back by popular demand, our topic is "Food: Fact or Fiction." Our experts will answer your questions about food, nutrition, and diet. In studio:

  • Dr. Roger Oskvig, Second Opinion’s chief medical advisor, geriatrician, and professor of clinical medicine at University of Rochester Medical Center
  • Dr. Lou Papa, regular panelist on Second Opinion, professor of clinical medicine, and partner in Olsan Medical Group, Center for Primary Care at the University of Rochester Medical Center
