"Twenty questions which are the twenty questions we ask them on our website website. They are perfectly capable if they mark anything in the wrong column to realize this is not safe I will get a blood clot and I could die and so they will exclude blue bins where they've actually done research with our. They had a bunch of women take this quiz and St. How many of them got it wrong and decided to give birth control? They didn't give it to them. Just you know questionnaire are and all the women excluded themselves correctly from taking birth control. I would still like to see some physician guidance. Only for if you have Difficulties picking it or if you are obviously fit in any of the no categories then you need to see a provider to deal with that but I absolutely absolutely supported going over the counter and I think the solution is not to not get over the counter for fear of not insurance coverage but rather to mandate insurance coverage via the affordable care act and California has passed an extra law thing if the forcible character is reverse then these contraceptive rights and access are guaranteed that it will continue to be available with no co-pay no deductible as long as it's an FDA approved methods of birth control. And I believe probably five to ten other states have done similarly all the progressive states Washington Oregon Are often in well. Well it strikes me plenty of other over the counter medications. That people don't always exclude themselves from practically. Yes we always say that a tylenol. Aw is far more dangerous than a pack of emergency contraception then thing than a pack of pill. You can't do too much damage with one packet. So so what are the other things that we talk a lot about on. The podcast is a women's executive could have power. So we're we're talking on another series of episodes about the possibility of a woman president and one of the problems. People seem to have an envisioning joining a woman. President is that they don't envision women in executive roles at all We have very few comparatively very few women. CEO's for instance. So I'm wondering wondering if you could talk to to to that piece of what you do of being a CEO and a woman and and a doctor and an how that role in seeing women in those roles is so important. Yes I have heard the phrase and I I believe that Sally Ride. If you can't see it you can't be in certainly unle. Many of us have shattered. Glass ceiling entered areas where others have not been before and we definitely have our male allies and I am thankful for all those that our are allies but being a woman. CEO has absolutely opened my eyes to the continuing ceiling against against us. When I go and pitch I have all these negatives seen against me? I'm a woman I'm a mother. I'm a doctor. I'm over the age of forty five and I see vs all as benefits because I'm over forty five. I've got amazing connections and networks. Because I'm the mother I know how to multitask because I'm a doctor. I know the field inside and out and I will make sure that our customer gets the best care possible and and I think it's really important that we as consumers and we're going to start a movement it's going to be either called full and then female founded female lead our heart heart full and the glasses half full and the sky is at least half full or it's going to be while like growl women on women lead and and we're GonNa have a stamp of approval that says this company is women owned women lead women's founded because I don't know people arch checking when they look at the companies out there that this company is run by this run companies. Run by a guy. This companies run by a guy. Who's a lawyer just wants to make big money? This companies run by a woman who was passionate and just wants to prevent unplanned pregnancies and make woman's life easier and make the world a better place for her our two daughters. Which company do you WANNA patronize? And people are just like going for the cheapest possible option and we are. Prices are very competitive additive. But it may cost more because we have better doctors we have providers that are coming from. UCSF UCLA harbored These kinds of things and But it's a different the five dollars a year. You know or or a couple of dollars there but mainly I want people to look look at the company I'm choosing who is the founder who is the leader and ask for accountability if you own shares of stock look at how many boards awards have women on it and I am perpetually horrified and shocked whenever I get this vote on your stock thing that only one out of ten one out of twenty on t it is their woman representation there and what's beautiful being woman. CEO is that my daughters and those around them all know that so you can be a CEO. What really touched me with my daughter for Had John Wayne at her summer camp where you can dress up in June or July forget in and whatever costuming wanted and she's just us as a CEO so that was really. There's a picture of her. I always wear my Pandya. T T shirt a white skirt and I carry on bag and I was like do you want to carry the combat is like no mommy a dote but she had. She had the shirt that she had this skirt and I was talking to sleep. And she's like mom and giving them business cards hand them out semi camp Camp Counselor and I was like yes. They'll do the perfect target audience. Audience here takes them business cards. And so you know. I love that. She seeing this and knowing this and I love my husband for his support in my family and and everyone anyone out there and they're for anyone contemplating there is a huge community of support for you but it is a hard and long haul and I hope that women realize realized we have the money we have the power and weakened in power more. CEO's if you purposely look for a company run by woman and Support Court that if you have money to donate You can actually help. Fund female founded female lead companies through various organizations that just portfolio or impact acid. And you can actually do it through a nonprofit donation impact assets if you have a donor advised fund or if you just have money and and you can also just do it straight up with your money if you WanNa make money. But sometimes people like doing it through their non profit donations so I think it's really important to get more women. CEO's out there but also more women CEO's found funded and we need more women to invest. Women are really good at donating but they're not investing and we need you to invest in women. There's also she. EEO Give a shout out for them. And we're you know I believe the minimum vestments like a thousand dollars but there are other platforms where it's I think like Iceland women in like zero dot. Well you have to give something to invest in a woman founded did one in life company. Is there anything else that you wanted to make sure we talk about. Yes I just want If any real listeners WANNA learn more about turning off period and the safety and the science behind it to go to Pandya health dot com slash periods optional and on top is a nicely presented and find some safety on the bottom. Is My tech talk on the science and safety in the middle is if you're on the pill patch ring how to do it and also WanNa give a shout out there. We're GONNA have a black Friday cyber Monday special for those of you who want to check it out. We can deliver again to all fifty states and Lincoln Prescribe in California and Florida and soon to be tecos and soon the entire United States But always happy to answer any questions about periods about reproductive rights and One parole I always like to give Pearl is no that there are four types of emergency agency contraception and two out of the four are better than the one that most people know which is plan B or leaving gesture all generic and those two are the copper..

"Everyone this is Kelly to broaden talking politics which is part of the cast family of podcast and I am on with my co-host Sophie. Hey Sophie Hey Kelly and joining us. Today is Dr Sophia Yen. She is the CEO and Co founder of Pandya Health and also a clinical associate professor at Stanford heard. Hello Dr Yan. Hello and thank you for having me. Yes so we are excited to talk to you so maybe just to sort of frame the conversation if you could tell us a little bit about you and how you came to be founding and CEO of Pandya Health. Yeah so. I am a pediatrician. That specialize in teenagers so I did double the years of training just to specialize than what we call sex drugs rock and roll a little sports medicine in some acne and being a academic clinical associate professor at Stanford Hanford. I had to pick an area to choose but just my passion has always been women's rights reproductive rights and specifically birth control preventing unplanned pregnancy. The preventing sexually transmitted infections and more recently minute passion is. I'm all about hashtags has had a period optional and and letting anyone who bleeding one week out of four no that that is optional and we now have the technology turn that off and how much better would like be without without random blood one week out of four hitting you in random places at random times love it and How kings have become the CEO and Co founder of the only woman founded women lead? Dr Founded Dr Lead Birth Control troll delivery Company was I was giving a talk much doctors. Why don't those Pesky women and their birth control and one of the top reasons glove? We didn't have time to run to the pharmacy. Go get it and my friend and I were like. It's two women. We all saw this. We will ship it to him in and keep shipping it to them until hill. They tell us to stop. And then when we ran ads for free birth control delivery sixty percent of the women. That responded didn't have a prescription either expired fired or they never had one to begin with and I'm a doctor. I can write prescriptions so we added in a synchronous telemedicine where you just a lot of questionnaire. Same questions I'd ask you to came into my office. You know what medical problems you have given your blood clotting disorders with drugs have you tried like you know etcetera etcetera and Mana and Self reported blood pressure Selfie a government. Id to prove that you are who you are and then our doctor looked at it. If it looks good we write the prescription billet Tier Insurance and pharmacies and to your door set it and forget it what happened. Yeah health worries. And you don't have to so doing that. Because it's kind of culmination of my life's work. Is You know helping women make their lives better. So what type of control are available with Pandya health. Yeah so the beauty of Penny health is that we are a pharmacy so we carry all the birth control pills patches and ring. There's pretty much nothing that we don't carry. There may be a specific generic bran that we don't carry because our pharmacy doesn't have that contract. But I would say ninety nine point nine nine nine percent. We've got you covered. And we take all insurance except for Kaiser and we're working on Medicaid in different states cause some states deep have one medicaid for the whole state. So that's easy contract. But if they have is a California a different Medicaid for every single county then you have to deal with like fifty different counties and we are all about access so we want to get those medicaid contracts so we basically are services free if you have on an existing prescription at a pharmacy. You just tell us where that and we move it from that pharmacy to our pharmacy. We bill your insurance ship it to your door and then we also conclude a goody every month so sometimes it's height you very popular and now it's gotten colder. We're GONNA be chocolate which I'm excited about Gear Delis it's peppermint Bark as well as sea salt caramel and mint and then We also Provide information from other female founded founded female lead companies Were sending out some makeup By I think it's pocket pals. Forgive me forgetting the name wrong but it's you put it in your person so if you're an emergency emergency needed a little lipstick or Mascara or some rouge. It's already in there in this little pocket pal. I believe we've also given out. Feminist pins condemed Wyndhams a free subscription amid magazine a discount off of my friends vibrator the most Internet of things vibrator if you WANNA check that out lioness I mean company uh-huh so and all that is free The only thing you have to pay for is if you do need a doctor's appointment we absolutely prefer you use your doctor or your provider but if is not we WANNA make sure women have access and so in California and Florida and soon to be Texas and soon other states as soon as we get that going. It's twenty nine dollars once a year. Air To use our doctors reliability legal and all that and you have accessed relearn sixty four days to our passionate excited academics. And so as I'm listening to you say that this is all about making things easier for women I am struck by how many of the reproductive laws that we are seeing being passed around the country are seemingly designed to make life harder for women to make things Accessing healthcare harder to make things like making personal autonomous choices harder. What are ways that we could be? Better advocating four four laws. The that do exactly what you're talking about that make access to things easier instead of harder. That puts choices and decisions back in the hands of women doctors. Instead of lawmakers I think with the current administration and the current people that are in power in the Senate. It is dark times for anybody with a uterus and I don't understand the Republican Party when they say they want small government. They want to get into your bedroom into your uterus My favorite frayed my uterus my choice nor uterus your choice and this country it is about freedom of religion and even amongst the same religion Catholics for choice. They believe that you listen to your conscience and your connection with God what is through your conscience and what God wants you to do with your uterus And not from some outside force telling you what to do so I I love that attitude attitude and I love the diversity that this country represents and I don't think one religion should be pushing a view on another religion and I think that reproductive rights needs to be seen and as bodily autonomy and freedom of religion as equality. I if I'm not here to be your breathing cow how you know and if somebody rapes me that doesn't give him the right to my body and to grow whatever he wants to grow inside my body my body my choice oyster your body your choice so What our company does is unfortunately needed? I would love a world where our company isn't needed it though not for our investors but just that everyone had access all the time but we also bring birth control to wherever you have Internet in the mailbox. So it's about care convenience and more importantly confidentiality so you can't be slut shamed so that you have access people who live two hours away from the nearest clinic. Two hours away from the nearest pharmacy. People who worked two jobs and don't have time to run to the silly pharmacy. Go get their medication or even in Liberal California where I'm located gated you walk in the pharmacy. Your comes in after sees you there and then the Pharmacists Sophia your birth control and then your boss knows and and then everyone else behind. You knows nosy. Nancy then tells your entire village you know so I think this is the future for Medicine and from the policy side. What would help us is to One for the public. I don't think they realize this has come up. A Lot. Is these p. b. m.'s. Pharmacy benefits managers. If you guys haven't covered this before They are a monopoly and they control the mail order and brick and mortar pharmacies overseas. And they're squeezing out any possible new innovation competition but also the Independent Pharmacy They make people signed contracts that that make them lose money. which is crazy? Talk though when you signed a contract with CVS or care mark or something like that and you're a small independent pharmacy. They'll give you wolf. Oh for this drug. We'll give you ten dollars for this drug. We'll give you five dollars and some of them. You make money but some of them you lose money and I'm like how can they force they don't force worship take it or leave it but how can they even give you a contract wherein you lose money and and that's that's the sad part. We're seeing a ton of independent pharmacies. Die Why because of these monopolies and the government is not aware of them and I was on a call with the newest youngest congressman. And he's out there to reform reform pharmacy and he didn't know about pharmacy benefit managers and I was like. Oh please educate yourself and get people who know stuff right. So that's the other small matter. Week is telemedicine laws. So the question is what is defined telemedicine who is allowed to do Telemedicine tele-medicine and interstate licensing or physicians. So we answered this to take a national exam for the American Board of Pediatrics. The actress and I shouldn't be practicing pediatrics. Any different in California than in Florida Than Maine or whatever but I need to get licensed in all fifty fifty states or a big portion of it if I want to practice telemedicine and I'm happy to pay the fees if I have to but to fill out all these forms and and get certified by every state is absolutely ridiculous so we we need to reform that and then the other thing is whether or not Insurance Company wants to reimburse different types of telemedicine so ours is a store and forward method where you capture the information and then you Ford it. It isn't by phone isn't by video and we like that for the convenience and the confidentiality But some people consider that telemedicine some people say is explicitly not telemedicine. Some people say you can't prescribe unless you physically seen the patient but If you were to come into my office I wouldn't do anything anything differently. I would ask you these questions. I would check your blood pressure and medications so to make it invalid or not legal is decreasing people's IOS access to birth control and same thing going with specific laws against abortion pill. That's not my company but I have a lot of friends in that field and and they're facing specific log going after them. So as I was looking through this sort of process of how you get control with India It made me think about how it's a lot of it is sort of a formality and it made me wonder about sort of the ongoing. I'm going to be. It's over whether birth control should be a prescription medication or be available over the counter. And I've heard until recently it was mostly Asli People on the left. Who wanted to see it be available over the counter but recently there's been sort of pushed back on that Where people are saying well but then insurance companies could up not to cover it? So I'm wondering what you think about birth control as a prescription medication and whether how you think we can resolve that kind of dilemma. Yes I think. It's unfortunate that the Democrats and those who believe an access to birth control do not want it to go over the counter because they're they're afraid insurance won't cover it so the solution is not to not let it go over the counter. The solution to pass a law that you will cover it right and that is what has been done under the affordable care act any. FDA approved method of birth control for women have to be covered.

"The. You're listening to how do you train that the place where advice and encouragement for people? Interested in learning more about positive reinforcement training, you can interact with us on our Facebook page. How do you train that we've some questions and comments, and we will put those topics into our feature podcast so pitcher feet up. And let's hit start it. Hello, welcome everybody. I am cat Camplin. This is Becca hats, and we are basically gonna talk to each other a little bit today. Let you guys get to know us little sort of meet and greet cat and Becca doesn't that sound? Like an awesome episode. Had sounds like what's gonna be fun. You might actually get into some how to a little bit too. But. Beca. Why don't you tell everybody sort of how you got interested in animals in the first place? I think I was born that way. I I am that child that brought every animal home from school. I was fortunate when I was fifteen I was allowed to spend my own money and buy my first dog, which was a Doberman that I competed in showed and also was heavily involved in horses doing three day, eventing and dressage. And I never stopped it. There's. Almost never been a time in my life. I moved to Germany for five years. I had a very brief time for a couple of months where I didn't have a dog or a cat or a horse, but it really quickly. And I started teaching at a very young age. I grew up in pony club in pony club. The older kids help the younger kids. So I was teaching at fourteen as I progressed in age and experience I began training horses working with an showing dogs and kept going competing at pretty decent levels in three day venting, undersize working and training my own horses off the track thoroughbreds way bread Morgan's as a family, and I showed dobermans my mentor was a labrador and drug me to a lot of dog shows when I had the opportunity I would mentor with anybody that would take me pretty much nice. How did you get interested in dogs and behavior? Oh, gosh. So my parents put their loss in Mike crib with me. So my first babysitter was a dog. Much to the displeasure of my grandparents. Great grandparents. And they they you know it somewhere around. I was about three they decided. Yeah, we tried this kid thing it didn't work out. So well, so we're gonna just go back to dogs. So they kept me, obviously. But you know, I grew up with we never had like less than three dogs. And it was just my brothers and sisters were dogs. They called them my brothers and sisters. You know, I would've traded my sister for almost any animal. I love her. Now. Yeah. So. And then we got a alab that bit of vet tack during a vaccination in the vet basically said you get this dog training or it needs to be euthanized as dangerous dog. And so I went in with my family in worked with a trainer that was like on Johnny Carson and stuff. He was like the way long ago version of the dog trainer to the stars. And I ended up apprentice seeing him for a few years and kinda got the training bug as opposed to like the dog bug. You know, yes, I kinda went. A more circular path. I got heavily into showing horses. I was always showing are in competing and training either horses or dogs, and I was really good with young animals, and I was really good with problem animals and. I liked fixing them. So that became something. I I did quite a bit of working in. California and Louisiana to places I lived I did a lot of horse trading in dog training both and when I moved over to Germany, I got more heavily at that point. I was already disabled. I'd been in a bad car wreck. So I have four fused vertebrae and writing just wasn't something that I could do a whole lot of. And I got more heavily involved in dogs and competed over there at world winner dog shows all got to travel all over Europe showing dogs spent some time with Jeff burn hill, who's a wonderful terrier man and working with a variety of of Germans and some other nationality trainers and competitors. And became just more and more unanswered. And while I was there in the deep snow. Ordered Karen Pryor's book don't shoot the dog. And that was really my turning moment of. Deciding what type of training are really wanted to focus on and becoming more and more involved in the science of trading. It's nice. That led me to Sofia again, Dr Sophia yen when I moved back to the United States. I actually went over and was able to work with her Sam, and she talked to me about certification. And you know, it's not something that's required in our profession. Correct. Correct. Is kind of interesting because almost anything else, you do you have to have some type of education and certification to do it. After a period of time if talking to her I decided to look into certification and chose to go with the Karen fire academy. So that's who I'm certified through. Been training dogs for over thirty years and other species and am really really happy with the changes in our industry. At what point did you kind of really focus on making it your full profession. Well, I did it for as volunteer as a side job for a Jillian years. Not really. But. I got. I got involved with a a rescue group that I worked with for about eight years as like a part time job to my full time job. In then I moved in. I got involved with obedience on competitions in AKC clubs in that whole crazy competitive Uber competitive world, which is sometimes bizarre yet. And then I got laid off for the second time in four years with the whole economy bust, and I said, you know, what I don't wanna work for anybody anymore that release sort of you know, when they can just dispose of you on a win that sort of. Crashes that little balloon. So I took my severance pay. I went through the Karen prior academy. And you know, I had already been working as volunteer in already had been training dogs for Jillian years in. It was an easy transition to make actually in the night back that up. The Karen prior academy certification with the CPT, which is the certified professional dog trainers association in then. Yeah, might do some more you there's thing. I that funny. How you start learning in looking at what you can really learn and one of the things I love about dog training is I can't ever stop learning. There will always be something. I haven't done that. I don't know in somebody. I can learn from it is addicting. It is a dictator certifications are addicting. The knowledge is addicting in sort of the what was one of the discussions that? I saw this week on Facebook was rethinking the leave. It like, you know, there's the Kathy's today. A book plenty in life is free sort of. Disassembling the notion of nothing in life is free protocol for a behavior change dogs. And there was you know, this fascinating thing of like, you know, the leave it really sort of looking at is that something that we should be training the way that we're actually training it. Do you train? How were you training before you read that? Well, yeah, good question. So I start with the Dougie's end. I think what with the topic was was that the food is actually presented in an open poem. And as the dog moves forward the hand closes. So it's actually not the food is actually withdrawn, which is right trading. It's frustrating. Like, can you just imagine someone sitting there holding out a Donut for you? I can imagine. My response doughnut. Leave it and you're like, but it's a Donut. I wasn't don't it you go to reach for it. It's like the donate goes away. Like, I. Recall that teasing. It's it is it's teasing. That's a very good word for it. But I don't start that way. The hand is already closed nickel ready lead. It. Technically, it's it's not the food isn't available. They can smell it. And if they back away or turn away that action makes the hand open. Yes. So that's usually how I from the hand also dude on the ground in sort of, you know, faded in in the do a very similar thing with food on the ground under the foot where it's not available in backing up. Makes it come up

And so this is this is this is why this is why you shouldn't SCRUFF a cat, Jim. Yeah. Many cats act. React adversely describing and it results in aggressive behavior. Mother cat knows the precise pressure to place on the skin at the back of the neck and she scripts their kittens mainly to carry them for an adult cat. The action of a human's graphing is just frightening and puts the cat into an relaxed and guarded state. And at the end of the day, you're not a cat. Important to nurse all kinds of cool cats. I know it'd be on the another cat. Cats have pressure sensors on the teeth, which is why they can just very carefully and gently carry say mouth in cabinets. Mouth yet. They can Ralph mouth in his cap mouths. Okay. My cat before Jim when of texted people, but that was my car about she said, my cat. Someone asked me is an illegal and cruel. Anyway, they can carry a mouse very gently yet they can rip apart. It's parade. So, you know, cats have something we don't have which is the pressure sensors on the teeth. And if you're not sure what the scripture the neck is because you may have never had a cat is the skin on the back of its neck and lifting a capital suspending its body weight bites SCRUFF is unnecessary and potentially painful, and it's certainly not safer appropriate way to handle your cap. The theory that the kittens go limp when them carry them by the SCRUFF, and it's called a flex reflex. It only occurs in kittens? There's now thought Griffin the skin in a mother cat fashion causes stress and can make a cap more fearful. So this more research accents, doesn't and this. This continues research, scientists good thing it's a really good thing. And I haven't seen as much scientists going on now in the last fifteen years. It's amazing. There's so much research going on for animals anyway screen should only be used in an emergency situation where your muster strain your cat quickly. And that's your only option and apart from this Griffin should never. Be used as a training action or a reprimand reprimanding. A this way will leave you with an upset. Confused cats, and you will break your cats trust in you what you don't want to do negative and fossil scuffing should never be a choice. Always understand. I always said, it's understand normal cat behavior. Because I believe that many many people are reprimanding cats for the normal behaviors like scratching it nor mill cats need to scratch. That's why Ted Nugent wrote cat, scratch fever. It's not because of fully references in the show today. No one's gonna take us seriously. It's just not show. So I do see that. I see that not just with with cats. I see that with dogs SE people getting mad at dogs are normal behaviors the there's an expectation that they should act like humans, which is ridiculous. Let your cat academy. Adult be a dog lots of things you can do if you can catch. You don't. Yeah. You have to make a husband that way to leave him to be legislated Catera dog. This is a motor Dicky. I'm just saying that just goes hand in hand with what you're saying. I always say this way, we did these photo fundraisers and lots of people show up with the pets. You will be stunned love to observe such a good a good lesson for me when we do these voter fundraise, it's upset people in the pets. But one of the things that people do they just can't seem to ask the dog to sit in a nice manner. I don't mean to dog sit in a nice, man. I mean this for the people to say to the dog. Can you sit for me? George will you sit for me. No, they have to shout in a very angry way rapid fire sits as it's bizarre. It's so bizarre, and it's confusing to adopt because dogs understand tone, the understand tone intention, and that's through some great research that happened if the if there's no intention behind the tone, and they don't match up the dog does not believe it. But if if they're together the dog will understand it. So to shouts it just makes no sense in an angry, man. It makes no sense whatsoever. But I see that all the time. It's so we had and you can just ask your doctor sit. I mean, I can say that's my doctorate. I just say can use it for me, just sit and look at this so fabulous and a rally Askin to say, anyway, just give him a trait. Which is another thing too. You dog does not always have to do a trick. Or a command to get a treat. They don't you can just give him a treat. Anyway. So where was I going with this? I think that's the end of that one. But basically understand your cats behavior what is normal. Don't get mad normal behavior. Don't get mad at cat that scratches. There are lots of things you can do to provide enrichment that that satiate then need to be a cat. There are many ways you can do that. Remember the show we had with the unique feeding system. Yes, it's funny. You mentioned the cat forget, she's a veterinarian can't veterinarian. She came up with a feeding system that is close to how cats naturally feed which is not into sittings day wildcat hunting. Yes needs. It was what it is. It's revolutionary. It is changing the lives of cats and chain. Changing the lives of the people that live with it is eliminating behaviors it is reducing obesity and cats and elevating cats. Feelings of wellbeing and being happy. And that's all you why because cats feed normally cats would feed small and often throughout the day. They would catch. There must be a cat. Yeah. That's a good thing because it keeps their energy up throughout the day. So what they do is. They hunt for their food. They play with they kill it and can play with it. Then they eat it. Then they sleep. Yeah. And if you can't satisfy the prey drive. You don't have a fairly depressed cap because how else is you're going to get that. You know such as prey drive. If you feed it twice a day and has to you for food aid eliminates this need to go and find its food. So she what did she originally? Call the business 'cause she changed it to Phoebe and Desi, I think. Oh, can you search that for me? Jim. I think it's Phoebe and desert. If you just search that on on Facebook for me, but it was a different name prior to. And I'm glad they changed the name because it kind of didn't click with what the product was. So let me tell you what it is imagine. This is my best description. You know, what a poop back hold. It looks like it looks like a small captial, and there are five of those and on the our side of them is a very thick like nylon canned of fabric gem, and it's got tassels on the end of it. And you put your food inside of him. You cannot currently Kibble inside of it. And then you hide that in different areas of the home. So this can one keep your cat active really important to keep them active and challenging and they get to find the food because it's got tassels on. It's like a toy as well. So they get to play with it. So they found their food to get to play with it. They eat their food, and they sleep, and then they repeat the formal times throughout the day, doc and Phoebe cash dot com. Feebis cat lot doc in feebis cat company that strikes a new she changed the name. I love how by the way, I met her at super sue this year. She was on the show. We'll replay that such a good show. But so great. To see how would love to hang out with her a little bit more more. But she's actually a veterinarian and she's well well well well versed on cats anyway. So she crazies product, and she starts getting these incredible emails and videos back saying, I have a very happy cat. Now. My cat has lost weight. My cat is active, and they're just more more of a cat satis satisfied cap. And she said, it's the most amazing thing to receive those emails in those videos because she's she's she understands cats so incredibly well. She's trying to work on something. She can put wet food in it. But. She'll get there. She will get that. Because ideally, you won't have wet food because you want them to have moisture in the diet really important that the moisture and the diet, and unless you've got a cat that goes and drinks on command. Then you need to you need to put the moisture back into their diet for them. But. She's a fantastic that's an area. Isn't she JIMBO docking? Phoebe again. Doc, doc and feebis cat company dot Phoebe, Phoebe dot com. Okay. At the end. Thank you for that. But yeah.

A couple of the veterinarians that you can follow is Dr Ma Mati Becker and also Dr Sophia yen. She she did pass away, but still continues and all findings researches on that. If you don't turn a little bit more about cats. That was a long one. Let's take a quick break. We'll be back when we come back took a little bit about fear free certificate and a pit bull.
