Ask Bob, a Novel

Monday, August 12, 2013

Peter Gethers discusses his new novel, Ask Bob, a love story about a pet doctor who discovers that the best relationships are often the most surprising. Dr. Robert Heller is one of New York City’s leading veterinarians, and his “Ask Dr. Bob” advice column is hugely popular among pet-lovers. Yet Dr. Bob understands animals a lot better than people, and he definitely could use some advice of his own.

What I was talking about was a store on E 9th St - Whiskers. Thet sell healthy, all-natural pet food.

What was that brand of natural cat food the doctor mentioned at the end of the interview? Did he say "Whiskers"?

I've tried looking that up but all I can find is "Whiskas".

I'm also concerned that the main brands of cat food are ultimately unhealthy for the animals, especially over time.

Thanks.
