Don't put off a trip to the dentist! The longer your pet's dental disease goes untreated, the worse it becomes. Early treatment will most importantly prevent pain but will also reduce dental costs in the long run. Call us for a dental check today.

It is chilly out there! A coat might be a good idea for pets that have been clipped or are old and feel the cold, but be aware that a coat might impede your pet's ability to regulate his own temperature. Never leave your pet unattended while wearing a coat as he may overheat.

Our very own Dr Fiona Warton is an executive committee member of The Australian Veterinary Behaviour Interest Group (AVBIG). They are pleased to be hosting a series of educational seminars on canine and feline behaviour in September 2015.

Pet owners will have the opportunity to attend the evening seminars where they will learn why dogs may find some social situations stressful and how to help them develop the appropriate skills to relax and enjoy the many activities we want to share with them. The “Talking with dogs and cats” session will provide owners with a better understanding of what their pet is trying to tell them about how they feel emotionally and also to respond more appropriately with their own body language.

Please see the attached link to get all the details. Maybe you will see Dr Fiona, or one of our Veterinary Nurses while you are there. http://www.ava.com.au/…/2015-Behaviour-Roadshow-registratio…

Winter is in full swing and it can get pretty darn cold in some areas of Australia. In fact, in some places your pet’s water bowl may even freeze over. It may not get a chance to thaw during the day so your pet will have no access to water! We recommend you check your pet's water bowl morning and night.
