American Kennel Club  and AKC Canine Health Foundation Release Podcast about Canine Nutrition


The American Kennel Club and the AKC Canine Health Foundation are pleased to debut the next podcast in the Genome Barks series.

This week on Genome Barks, we welcome Dr. Joe Wakshlag, a faculty member at Cornell University with a specialty in veterinary nutrition. Recorded at the August Breeders’ Symposium held in Syracuse, New York, Dr. Wakshlag discusses the recent commercial pet food scares and non-traditional diets, as well as specific nutrition requirements for pregnant and lactating bitches and canine cancer patients.

The Genome Barks podcast series features lectures from the highly successful AKC-CHF Breeders Symposia and provides responsible breeders and pet owners an inside look at the work being done by the AKC and the AKC Canine Health Foundation.

New podcasts are released every two weeks and can be accessed from either the American Kennel Club website at or the AKC Canine Health Foundation website at — click on “Podcasts”. They will also be available on Apple’s iTunes® and at
