Identify your pets!

We have pets arriving at our hospital almost every week having been picked up on the streets. Most of these animals have no form of identification.There are various ways to identify your pets. Name tags and collars are still the most useful and they are a lot of fun too, with lots of colourful waterproof tags available today. The most reliable means of identification is a microchip which is embedded under the skin. This is compulsory if your pet is going to travel overseas with you. It is a good idea to have a tag on the collar telling people your pet is microchipped so that anyone who finds your dog/cat will take him to the vet to be scanned and identified. REMEMBER STOPPING YOUR PETS FROM ROAMING IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. Don't waste animal welfare's limited rescources by forcing them to drive around fetching your dogs off the streets. If you have a dog that insists on roaming, please speak to your vet about possible solutions.

 

Parvo virus is still very much around!

Parvo virus is one of the viruses that we vaccinate puppies against with the 5 in 1 vaccination. We still see sick parvo puppies every month and many more puppies die every day because of infectious diseases like parvo. Many people are breeding and selling puppies without vaccinating them. MAKE SURE TO ONLY BUY A PUPPY THAT HAS A VACCINATION CARD SIGNED BY A VETERINARIAN IF YOU WANT TO MAXIMISE THE CHANCES OF BUYING A HEALTHY PUPPY. The first puppy vaccination is at 6 weeks old so any puppy old enough to home should be vaccinated. DONT BE CAUGHT OUT - VACCINATION IS COMPULSORY IF YOU WANT A HEALTHY DOG!

Understanding congestive heart failure in your pet

Heart Failure

Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is a very common condition affecting our pets, and is more often seen in dogs than cats. Although it is a serious condition, and a major concern for a pet owner, it can be easily diagnosed and once diagnosed, it can be managed effectively. The important thing is to make an early diagnosis and start treatment immediately. Congestive Heart Failure can occur in pets of any age, but is more common in older animals. For this reason it is important to have annual checks done on older generation pets. First, let’s have a look at how the heart works to be able to understand this condition better.
