'Pet Connection' interactive webcast series debuts with holiday show

Polk County, FL -- Polk’s Government Television (PGTV), in partnership with Orchid Springs Animal Hospital, announces the debut of a new interactive webcast series especially for animal lovers.  “Pet Connection with Dr. Mitsie Vargas” kicks off with a holiday theme on Tuesday, Dec. 6, from 7-8 p.m.

Unlike with a television show, internet viewers determine the content of the program, with each webcast having a specific theme or topic.

The inaugural webcast features Dr. Vargas, along with Humane Society director Lisa Baker, groomer Tiffany Santos and AKC certified trainer Christina Crumley. They will discuss top popular breeds, latest grooming trends, easy obedience training tips, as well as the top ten holiday pet hazards and how to avoid an emergency trip to the vet. These experts will answer pet questions and offer advice on the best way to keep pets healthy, happy and safe.

“I’m really excited about this program and the fact that we’re reaching people using technology,” said Vargas. “With this format, we can address specific questions and concerns that pet owners have. But it only works if you go online and IM us during the show!”

Online participants can access the interactive webcast at www.polk-county.net/pgtv, www.osahvets.com, www.theledger.com/webinars, or www.lakelandlocal.com/pgtv to chat online and watch Dr. Vargas and her guests via a live video stream.

“Pet Connection” will feature new webcasts monthly. Future topics include: Alternative Veterinary Medicine: Is it Real or a Fad?, Top Ten Ways of Saving  Money on Pet Care, Diabetic Epidemic in Pets, Pet Food Facts and Fiction, Hidden Pet Killers in Your Backyard, Is Your Cat Trying to Tell You Something?

After each live interactive webcast, “Pet Connection” will air on PGTV (Bright House 622, Comcast 5, and Verizon 20), and will be available on-demand at the above websites. For more information, contact Mitsie Vargas at (863) 324-6964 or email her at drv@osahvets.com.
