During this taste-bud tantalising time of the year, there are a range of hazards to our pets that we should be aware of so that the long weekend we all look forward to goes to plan.
Keeping our pearly whites strong and healthy takes a lot of work. Brushing twice a day, flossing and the list goes on. Who doesn’t love a trip to the dentist twice (if we are really good) a year?
This month Dr Ophelia and the Vetcall Mudgeeraba team had a case our general practices don’t commonly see due to the severity and urgency to the condition; gastric dilatation-volvulus known as GDV.
Did you know that one of the most common cases we have been seeing lately is itchy skin?
As of late, we have been noticing a lot of pets coming through our doors with varying stages of dental disease. Call us to book your pet in for a FREE dental check with a nurse!
With the weather heating up, our pets are more susceptible to contracting heat stroke. This is especially more common in our long-haired dogs, and brachycephalic (short faced) breeds.
With Christmas approaching fast, it is tempting to treat ourselves with tasty, festive foods. However, it is really important that we are not sharing these foods with our furry friends.
As you may have noticed, we have welcomed some new staff members to our clinic here at Vetcall Mudgeeraba. This last month we have unfortunately been seeing lots of tick cases come through our doors.
