Happy World Blood Donor Day

🌎🩸 Today we want to thank all (humans and animals!) who have donated blood to save the life of another ❤️ Your generosity and compassion make a real difference in the lives of others in need.

Donated blood in veterinary medicine can be used for numerous things including support during a difficult surgery, to raise the red blood cell volume in anaemic patients and administered to those suffering from bleeding disorders 🩺💉

Pictured below is ‘Romy’ a handsome Groodle who saved a life back in April 🐶🐾


Romy was called in this week to donate blood to help save a patient who presented with anaemia (low in red blood cells). Romy was very brave throughout the entire process and donated 250ml of whole blood. We are pleased to share that his donation truly made the world of difference to the recipient, who is now feeling much better! 🐶 🐾 🦸‍♂️

FIV Vaccine Supply Update

As many of you are probably aware, there has unfortunately been an ongoing industry-wide shortage on the FIV Vaccine.

We have just received an updated ETA from the manufacturer of the FIV vaccine. They are hoping wholesalers will have them back in stock mid June.

For all our feline friends who are due or become overdue for their FIV vaccine, we strongly recommend desexing to reduce the risk of fights and spreading the infection and keeping your cats indoors, especially at night.

If your cat is due for their annual vaccinations, please still call us to book an appointment for their other vaccines as normal. We will put you onto our priority call-back list and you will be contacted as soon as the FIV vaccine arrives 📞

Christmas Toxins

WOW! Only one week till Christmas! Whilst we often indulge in a few extra treats during the Christmas period, some popular festive foods can cause our pets to become very unwell.

Here’s some foods to put on your pet’s naughty list this Christmas:

– Chocolate

– Grapes, raisins and sultanas

– Macadamias

– Onions and garlic

– Cooked Bones

– Ham and fatty meats

C2i Vaccine Shortage

Unfortunately there is currently an industry-wide shortage of the Leptospirosis Vaccine ( c2i ).

For our doggy friends who are due or become overdue for their Leptospirosis vaccination, we advise avoiding areas frequented by rodents. It’s also important to avoid letting your dogs drink, wade through, or swim in stagnant water (such as puddles, communal water bowls, ponds, etc). Taking these precautions can help reduce the risk of exposure during this time.

If your dog is due for their annual vaccinations, please still call to book an appointment for their other vaccines as normal. We will put you onto our priority listing, to ensure notification as soon as the C2i vaccine arrives.

We appreciate your understanding & patience during this time. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us on ☎️ 6372 6780
