·   This year the clinic will be operating a Christmas donations appeal for the RSPCA Animal Shelter. Sadly, there are many animals who will not have a home to their own this Christmas and we are sending a stocking of goodies to show them a little extra love. We have a stocking in clinic where clients are welcome to donate their second hand or new items - anything that the shelter may find useful. They will gratefully accept any donations however are always in particular demand of: Dry Kitten Food, Wet food of any kind and Peanut butter, cream cheese and vegemite for environmental enrichment. The clinic will be taking the stocking to the shelter at Lonsdale the week before Christmas.

·         We are seeing an increasing amount of pets suffering from behavioral problems and mental illnesses all across the Veterinary world. Did you know that our beloved pets can also suffer from mental illnesses, phobias and anxiety?! In fact, approximately 1 in 5 pets have some form of anxiety! A mental illness is different to a behavioural problem as an animal's brain is actually not functioning normally. Types of mental illnesses include: Separation anxiety, noise phobias, generalised fear, post traumatic stress disorder, compulsive behaviours - eg. tail chasing and house soiling. If you are concerned about a behaviour your pet is exhibiting, please feel more then welcome to have a chat with our staff as you’re most likely not alone!

  • There are now Australia wide in dogs testing positive for Heartworm  40% of whom are on monthly preventative’s (this is as preventative’s need to be given on the EXACT same day of each month and generally not a day later, not due to their ineffectiveness). Dogs contract Heartworm from Mosqutio’s - as there is no possible way to prevent our pets from coming into contact with these nasty bugs, Heartworm prevention is so important! Unfortunately, failing to give your dog heartworm prevention on time can leave them at risk from this deadly disease where the worm grows in the lungs and valves of the dog's heart and can be fatal. We encourage you consider year round heartworm prevention.
