Weekly half-hour program, Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. on WXXI Reachout Radio

Pets+Us is a weekly program of information and stories about the companions in our lives – our pets.  The program includes feature articles about the relationship between pets and their humans; useful tools and new products for pets; a “Don’t Eat That” segment that includes things that can be hazardous to your pet’s health; and stories from listeners about their own pets.

We review the care and experience level required for the most popular small pets. Our feature will be from the March/April 2015 edition of Best Friends Magazine that explains five ways we’re not so different from our dogs after all.
