August is Dental Month

🦷 DENTAL MONTH STARTS NEXT WEEK! 🦷

Did you know over 80% of dogs and cats develop dental disease by the age of three?

If your pet has either bad breath, discoloured teeth, loose teeth, a change in their appetite or behaviour – chances are your best friend may be experiencing the pain and discomfort of dental disease.

The signs of dental disease can sometimes be difficult to see, but the good news is that we’re here to help. During dental month our team will be providing FREE dental checks, to examine your pet’s mouth for signs of dental disease. We’re also offering some great deals on dental procedures, to help keep your dog’s teeth clean and healthy. Book your pet in for a FREE dental check today!

Leptospirosis

There have recently been reported outbreaks of leptospirosis in dogs in Sydney. This can be a life-threatening disease which is most commonly contracted by drinking water contaminated with infected rat urine 🐭
Affected dogs may show signs of:
🐾 lethargy
🐾 inappetence (eating less than usual)
🐾 drinking more than usual
🐾 vomiting
🐾 diarrhoea
In more advanced cases, some dogs may develop jaundice (yellow discolouration of the gums, skin and whites of the eyes).
This disease is zoonotic (can spread to people) and is highly contagious through the animal’s urine so please take necessary precautions with you and your family and see your doctor if you are concerned.
Although in the area we have not yet seen any animal cases, as a precaution, we are now advising that all dogs are vaccinated against it. This involves 2 vaccinations one month apart. Depending on the time of this vaccination it may be able to be synchronised with their regular vaccinations.
Please be sure to contact us on 6372 6780 to make an appointment to have your dog vaccinated.
