Connections: Unleashed - "Pocket Pets"

In this episode of Unleashed, we welcome Erik Herrema, DVM, of Penfield Veterinary Hospital to talk about pet health and well being.

We also hear the story of Gypsy the pug. Last year, she captured hearts across the Rochester community as she fought snow and wind to find her forever home. 

And, if you're thinking about buying a small pet -- like a hamster or gerbil -- for a family member as a holiday gift, there's a lot you should know before you make a "pocket pet" a part of your family. We talk about life spans, care, and more.

Evan Dawson is the host of "Connections with Evan Dawson." He joined WXXI in January 2014 after working at 13WHAM-TV, where he served as morning news anchor. He was hired as a reporter for 13WHAM-TV in 2003 before being promoted to anchor in 2007.
