ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Dr. Mark Wysocki of Avery Creek Pet Hospital joins Evan Donovan in the News 13 WLOS studio to answer your pet questions!

The first question is from Ken Blanchard: "I saw on face book the other day that Blue Buffalo dog food was being recalled because of mold in it. How can I be sure my dog food is safe to feed my dog?"

Diane Mitchell asks "I took my cat, Max, to my Vet for an eye infection and he said it was caused by a Herpes Virus infection. How do you think he got it and what can I do about It?"

Patricia Web wants to know about her dog. "I took my 5 year old retriever mix for his annual check up and my Vet recommended a dental cleaning. He has only eaten dry food, I thought that should help his teeth, am I wrong?"

You can submit your pet questions and a picture or video of your pet with name to the News 13 WLOS Facebook page, or via email to with "Ask the Vet" in the subject line.
