Spring allergies in dogs

How to know if your pet is allergic?

One of the most common reasons for a pet to go to a vet is for skin complaints. Spring and Summer are the worst times. Skin problems can be recurring and one of the most frustrating diseases for both owners and their pets!

Many skin complaints present in a similar way: hair loss, itching and sores. The aim of the Veterinarian is to find the cause, as then a treatment plan can be made. Careful listening to the history and a thorough examination of the whole pet is vital.

The Offical Opening of WVS Animal Hospital

What a great day we had!

The official opening of WVS Animal Hospital with Mayor Luke Smith and Councilor Laurie Koranski was a success. We had an excellent turn out of 150 people from the local community, despite the rain. 

We were entertained by hidden talents from the WVS staff, Wittey showed her true colours with her balloon animals. Em and Sam had fun with the surgery display too.

Dreaded mosquitos transferring Heartworm to your pet

Dreaded mosquitos transferring Heartworm to your pet

Mozzie, Mozzie, Mozzie. Ew! Ew! Ew!

When you are bitten by a mosquito, your skin will form a red bump that becomes extremely itchy. But did you know that a mosquito bite can make you really sick, and in severe cases can cause death? Mosquitoes can carry diseases that may be passed on to people through their bites, known as ‘vector-borne’ diseases. In Australia, some of these include Dengue virus, Ross River virus, Murray Valley encephalitis virus and Barmah Forest virus. The nasty mosquito can also make your pet really sick too. Some mosquitoes can carry a parasite called the Dirofilaria immitis Heartworm.
