Tom Watson – Carolinas Veterinary Medical Hospital

When you run, is Dog your co-pilot? Many, many of us wouldn’t consider stepping out for a jog without our best four-legged friend — even if it’s just for a couple of miles while warming up. But is that good for your canine companion? How much is too much?

Our guest today on Running Around Charlotte can answer those questions. Dr. Tom Watson is a former Army combat officer during Desert Storm and now serves Charlotte as veterinary orthopedic and soft tissue specialist, and owner and founder of Carolinas Veterinary Medical Hospital. To his credit, he doesn’t see bears, but does serve lions and tigers and dogs — oh my!
