We always have a discussion about pet insurance with our clients. It usually happens at our second puppy vaccination, when we have our little young healthy puppies coming in. Pet insurance is a really good idea because pets are part of our families and taking care of their health can be expensive, especially in times of emergencies where critical care is necessary.

Birds can make amazing companions, but with life spans that can often exceed our own, it is important to provide adequate housing, enrichment and the correct nutritional needs to ensure they can live long happy lives in captivity.

Working dogs aren’t as pampered as some of our clients’ pooches. In particular, farm dogs often miss out on regular flea control, which is awfully uncomfortable for them. With this in mind, we have teamed up with Rural Aid to launch a new initiative called ‘Help a Kelpie, Help a Farmer’.

There are three core cat vaccinations that every single cat should get. We call the core vaccinations the F3. They cover feline herpes virus, feline calicivirus, and a condition called feline panleukopaenia. If you tested every cat to see if they had been exposed to these viruses, it would be around 85 to 90 per cent have seen them at some point in their life. But there’s a catch with vaccinations—not all cats can get them, and they have to be tailored to every individual cat.
