Dr. Kwane The Street Vet

Have you heard of the Vet that walks the streets of L. A. in California looking for people that live there that have pets that might need some vet care?  Dr. Kwane Stewart has been on numerous TV talk shows lately and can be found all over social media. He also just opened up his own veterinary practice in Modesto, California. I  was fortunate that he could take some time from his hectic schedule to talk to me about what he is doing for the homeless and their companions.

We are trying something new. Recording not only the audio of my conversations with my guests for the podcasts,  but this time the video as well. Since Dr. Kwane Stewart, was on the show, and is such a cool guy, I wanted you to be able to see him as well.

I know, it’s a bit weird that I’m looking up and to the side when you see me. I am looking at Dr. Kwane from my perspective in the broadcast studio.  Gotta get the camera angle right next time.

Let me know if you like seeing a video of me and my guests.

Here are some photos Dr. Kwane sent me that illustrate our conversation and gives you more of an idea of his days helping people and their pets.

Dr. Kwane tells the story about a most memorable person and pet he met. This is the man, Michael and his dog, Crazy Girl, nicknamed, Cray, Cray.

In learning how the pets came into their lives, Dr. Kwane and the people he would stop and talk to, would both open up and share their own stories.
