Little Kids: Pets Pups & Little People, Dr Katrina Warren On Living With Both

Welcome to This Glorious Mess Little Kids. A twice-weekly look at parenting as it really is - confusing, exhausting, inspiring, funny, and full of surprises. So many surprises!

Pets...dogs, cats, chickens, fish are great for children. But looking after a little one and a furry family member is hard. Whether that's bringing a baby home to a pet or bringing an animal into a family, they certainly come with a challenge. 

Dr Katrina Warren, Veterinarian, you may remember her from Totally Wild or Harry's Practise joins Leigh and Tegan to talk about balancing pets and kids. She discusses everything from what to look out for if you're buying a pet, how to introduce your pet to your newborn and how to make sure your pet still feels loved after having a baby. 


Host: Leigh Campbell & Tegan Natoli

Guest: Dr Katrina Warren

Producer: Mikayla Floriano
