Operation Wanted: The Desexing Upgrade

Don't delay this Winter 2017

Do you have a cat or dog that is not yet desexed?

Did you know that some pets, especially cats, can reach sexual maturity and reproduce from just 4 to 6 months of age?

The RSPCA is currently running a program called Operation Wanted which encourages the desexing of dogs and cats between the 1st June to 31st August, 2017. During this period, if you register your pet online first, you will recive a 20% discount when you get your pet desexed.

Dragon's success surgery

Dragon's success surgery

Dragon is a yellow phase five year old female Central Bearded dragon. There are other types of Bearded Dragon, however Central Bearded Dragons generally make better pets as they have personalities better suited to captivity, and they are also available in different colour forms.

Dragon came to us because her owners had noticed that her toes looked abnormal and her foot started to become discoloured. Prior to this they had seen blood on her foot and on their other pet Beardie. 

When she came in, we quickly determined that the foot had become necrotic. We suspect this is due to a bite from the other lizard in the enclosure, which traumatized the tissue and damaged its blood supply.

Blood testing and why it is essential for your pet’s health

Blood testing and why it is essential for your pet’s health

Written by Dr Jesse S-Wardle (BVSc (Hons))

At Windaroo Animal Hospital, our patient’s health and well-being is of paramount importance. Our patients are unable to tell us if they are unwell, and illness can be masked even if they appear happy and healthy.

Every patient we see receives a thorough physical examination to assess their health but this unfortunately does not provide us with information about how their internal organs are functioning. A routine blood test provides your veterinary health care team with a window into what your pets internal organs are doing.

Keeping your pets fit and active with dog sports!

Keeping your pets fit and active with dog sports!

Did you know there are a variety of dog sports that you and your canine companion can participate in? Different breeds may excel at different sports, but there is virtually a dog sport suitable for every breed out there! These include agility, flyball racing, disc dogs, dock jumping, lure coursing, heelwork to music, rally obedience, protection sports and herding.

Agility is perhaps one of the better known and more readily available of the dog sports. Many local clubs have facilities for agility training. Most kinds of breeds, small or large, can participate, and it provides great physical and mental stimulation to keep both their mind and body happy and healthy.
