On The Pet Show this week, we've got some big hitters!

First up from Food & Water Watch, we've got Tony Corbo, the senior lobbyist for the food-related legislative and regulatory issues that come before Congress and the Executive Branch. Tony is talking to us about the huge issues we've seen with foods and treats being imported from China.

Since 2000, the amount of pet food imported from China has skyrocketed, increasing from about 100,000 pounds to nearly 86 million pounds in 2011.

This is a huge topic, Tony will have to come back and finish our discussion very soon. Send us any questions you may have for his next appearance!

Next, Steve Pelletier joins us from My Slim Doggy. A former software executive, Steve created Slim Doggy to help his dog Jack, formerly an unadoptable Labrador with major behavioral issues, to drop some pounds after he was adopted.

Steve is passionate about health and fitness for both people and pets, their new SlimDoggy App can help you to manage your dog's caloric intake and exercise program, and help to achieve a more appropriate weight for your pet.

From now until April 13, 2013, for every 'SlimDoggy' t-shirt sold, $3.00 will be donated to the Washington Humane Society's Fashion for Paws, and for every measuring cup sold, $1.00 will be donated. Use the promotion code DRKATY13 to ensure the donation gets made!

Bobby Mahoney and JJ Kelly, co-chairs of the St. Patrick's Day Parade and Fun Dog Show in Alexandria join us to officially invite us all to come out to Old Town on March 2nd for a fun day to benefit Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.

Dr. Katy will be the Mistress of Ceremonies and Judge of the Fun Dog Show, so you know it'll be a lively day. For more information, go to www.ballyshaners.org!

Finally, Dr. Dan Shillito from the Washington Animal Rescue League joins us with the amazingly Adorable Adoptable "Betty Boop!" Dr. Shillito talks to us about the income-qualified clinic at WARL and how their clinic actually helps to keep animals in their forever homes.

This week on The Pet Show - birds, kitties and Valentine's - oh my!

Adam Roberts, Executive Vice President of Born Free USA, joins us to tell us how his organization is working to improve standards of care for birds who have been adopted as pets, educate consumers about adopting birds from shelters, stop the international trade in wild birds and to protect and appreciate birds in the wild.

Next, the world famous Holly the swimming cat joins us with her owner Dani Lawhorne, from the Olde Towne Pet Resort to tell us how "going viral" has affected Holly - which is pretty much not at all.

We've got a few issues to warn you about surrounding Valentine's Day, plus some great gift options for the pets and pet lovers in your home. Special thanks to Moda Pet, Cool Blue Dog, Love Is A Rose, Honest Pet Products and StormSister Spatique for supplying us with some awesome products!

Finally, Danielle Bays, the Community Cats Manager, joins us from Washington Humane Society with the Adorable Adoptable Melodie! Danielle tells us all about how WHS helps with the feral cats in the community, and how you can too!
