01 A Dog's Perspective

Guybrush and Kaylee were kind enough to film what it was like from a Dog's Perspective on the Canine Adventure Course. Thankyou Jeanette and Eric for sharing this with us :)

Vaccinating your pet is one of the most important things you can do to ensure they lead a healthy life.

Here are four reasons:

1. Vaccinations protect against preventable diseases
Many diseases are completely avoidable through the correct use of vaccinations.

2. Vaccinations save money
They are substantially less expensive than the cost of treatment for the diseases they protect against.

3. Vaccinations allow you to board your pet
What would happen if you had a family emergency and boarding was the only option? If you board your dog or cat he must be up to date with his vaccinations. 

4. Vaccination allow visits to the vet hospital
If your pet has to stay in hospital he should be vaccinated. If your pet is sick, his immune system may be already be compromised so you want to know he is protected.

Your pet’s health, lifestyle and where you live may affect which vaccinations are necessary – we will determine the correct vaccination program for your pet.

If you have any questions about vaccinations ask us for the most up to date information.

Is your pet boarding over the Christmas holidays?

If your pet isn’t up to date with his vaccinations now is the time to get things in order as a booster vaccination may be required in a month's time.

Most facilities require cats to have a minimum of a F3 vaccination and dogs a C5 vaccination. 

Don’t forget to take your pet’s vaccination certificate with you when you admit your pet for boarding. It is also a good idea to keep your Worming and flea control up to date prior to admission.

We are more than happy to discuss what your pet needs so call us today to prevent any extra Christmas stress!

04 Oscar’s extraordinary gift

Oscar the cat arrived at a nursing home in the USA when he was just a little kitten. The nursing home decided to adopt him but they never expected he would have such an extraordinary gift.

This mysterious cat seems to be able to predict when patients are about to die. When he notices that someone is in their final hours, he will stay by their side, providing comfort.

This incredible behaviour notifies the nurses that help is needed and it’s so accurate that they usually contact the patients' families so they can be prepared.

This may seem a morbid story, but we think it’s truly a remarkable tale of a cat helping people when they’re most in need.

There's a great saying, "if your dog is overweight, you’re not getting enough exercise."

Physical activity plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy weight for your dog but what YOU put in your dog’s mouth is just as important.

Treats and snacks can stack on the kilos and food is an easy way to show love. As vets and vet nurses, we can sympathise with how hard it can be to say no to those adorable eyes!

But sadly you may be killing your dog with kindness. Many people do not realise that their pet is overweight and are not aware of the potential health dangers associated with canine couch potatoes.

Obesity puts our pets at risk of many of the same problems that human obesity causes, including heart disease, respiratory disorders, osteoarthritis, and diabetes.

Bring your dog (or cat!) in for a body weight check with us and we will work out their ideal weight.

There are plenty of diets available to help your pet lose weight, including an exciting new diet that works with your pet's metabolism. Ask us for more information.
