September News: 

  • The  Biggest and Best news to hit Yankalilla Vets is - WE NOW OFFER  Puppy PreSchool 🎉. Please call the clinic for all the details. Our first round of puppy's and their parents all graduated with flying colours! We had a whole bunch of fun and interesting discussions and games on behaviour, toileting training, puppy biting and coming when called! It's nice to see to puppy's returning to the clinic always so excited! 

 

  • We are very happy to introduce our new trainee Veterinary nurse Carly! Carly has had a strong passion for animals and their welfare from a young age, she regularly volunteers at the RSPCA and currently has 5 cats! We are very excited to see her grow and develop into the Veterinary industry!

 

  • Spring has sprung! Along with this nicer weather we are also quickly approaching snakes coming out of hibernation, magpie season and GRASS SEED SEASON! 
    Now is the time of year when grass seeds can become problematic to our fur babies, especially dogs - which can equate to grass seeds getting caught in their ears, eyes, paws, coat, even occasionally other peculiar places!!
    Grass seeds possess a special shape which cause them to stick to our pets skin and penetrate; this is due to the grass seed's tiny barbs which can cause forward migration.
    Our tips include:
    - Try to prevent your pets going through long grass which has gone to seed
    - Clip long haired pets
    - Examine your pets coat often, in particular between the toes, around the armpits and groin areas.
    Pets may show signs of discomfort by shaking their head, rubbing their eyes and chewing at their feet.

 

  • In terms of MAGPIE SEASON - Magpies are actually ground forages, hence baby magpies leave the nest without being able to fly properly. For their first week or two they learn by fluttering on the ground, relying on their parents for food and protection. If you see a young magpie in imminent danger from cars or animals, just move it to a safer area, otherwise please leave it be, as their parents will be keeping a watchful eye!
