Jaffe's Covid-19 quarantine update. Still bored.....
Myself and my family want to thank Hari and Jamie (hope I remembered names correctly) for their compassion and understanding on coming to our house to help our Lucy over the rainbow bridge. We were so heartbroken. Your help and understanding made a very difficult experience just a little more bareable. Knowing she was going with respect and love. Thank you.
We can't thank Crawford, Christine and The Point Clare Vet Team enough for the emergency care and compassion they gave our beautiful big bear; Terror, last week.

Unfortunately, Terror has taken his final rest, but we feel comfort in knowing he didn't suffer. Thank you for looking after our boy for the last eight and a half years.

Rest In Peace Big Bear - We Love You Forever πŸΎπŸ’œ
Beautiful Jaffe is now 10 months old. We love him to bits, in spite of him still being very naughty. He pretends to be an angel and as soon as you let your guard down, off comes your finger. πŸ˜€
Anyone else have any ideas?
Christmas is going to be fun this year with Jaffe around.πŸ˜€
This is a ridiculous video but well put together. Thought other pet lovers would appreciate it!
Happy hump day everyone!
Here's an update on the little ginger kitty we adopted from you, now known as Jaffe. He's settling in very well, befriending our other cat Daisy, who generally doesn't like anybody, and terrorising our dogs, chasing them around the house.

Meg πŸ’œ

Case of the week 🐾

Meg presented to us after her owner pulled a paralysis tick off her. He noticed she was wobbly on her legs and struggling to breathe and brought her in to the hospital.

When she arrived, our nurses noticed immediately that Meg was critical. She had collapsed and could barely breathe. She was rushed out to the treatment room, where she received oxygen, some medication to calm her down, and tick antiserum to mop up any toxin still remaining in her bloodstream.

Meg’s condition was the most severe kind of tick paralysis and her prognosis for survival was unfortunately poor.

Meg’s owner knew the seriousness of the situation but was willing to give treatment a go. Meg received a full body shave to facilitate further tick searches and another large paralysis tick was located. Meg also received a Bravecto Spot-On tick treatment.

Meg was discharged home to be nursed carefully. She had antibiotics for the aspiration pneumonia she sustained from breathing in her saliva.

When she came back for a recheck 5 days later she walked in the door wagging her tail!
She was a fighter and one very lucky lady.

The first photo is Meg after her initial stabilisation in hospital, and the second one is Meg at her revisit. We just can’t believe the amazing recovery she’s made after being so critically unwell. πŸ’•

While Meg’s story is a success, most dogs that become as unwell as Meg with tick paralysis aren’t so fortunate. Prevention is key - many options are available for ongoing tick prevention.

Call us today on 4324 5488 to discuss tick preventatives in your pet.

WE NEED YOUR HELP to find these adorable boys a forever family. 🐾


Friendly reminder to order prescription food or medication your pet requires over the holiday period. There may be delays due to public holidays and suppliers closing for the Christmas break. πŸŽ„



πŸ‘‰ We have seen an increase in the number of tick paralysis cases on the Central Coast - on top this there is currently a nation wide shortage of tick antiserum, leaving vet clinics with a limited supply.

πŸ‘‰ Up to date tick prevention combined with daily tick searches are key to help keep your pet safe from these dreaded parasites.

Signs of tick paralysis-

πŸ’₯ Change in bark or meow
πŸ’₯Wobbliness in hind legs which progresses to the front
πŸ’₯Difficulty breathing

If your pet is showing any of these signs they need to see a vet asap
Please call us on (02) 4324 5488 if you need any further information.

We are often asked - β€˜What can I do to help keep my pets teeth clean?’ 🐾🦷

There are a number of things that we as pet owners can do to help keep our furbabies oral health in tip top shape-

πŸͺ₯ Routine 6 monthly dental check ups

πŸͺ₯ Routine scale and polish

οΏΌπŸͺ₯ Daily teeth brushing

πŸͺ₯ DentalοΏΌ kibble- these are larger in size and textured so they clean their teeth with every bite plus they also contain other goodness that help keep plaque and tartar at bay.

πŸͺ₯ Dental chews - these can help clean teeth by wiping away plaque and tartar build up, freshen breath and provide lasting effects that help fight bacteria.

πŸͺ₯ Dental toys - designed to clean the teeth as they are chewed.

πŸͺ₯ Dental supplements such as daily water additives can assist with maintaining a healthy mouth by fighting plaque and tartar and freshen breath.

Please call us for any further information!

Do you know the signs of arthritis?

The cooler weather can intensify the pain of arthritis in our furbabies. Although there is no cure, we can certainly make them more comfortable and alleviate their pain so they can live life to the fullest!

Signs to look out for-

*Difficulty getting up and down from a sitting or laying position
*Walking stiffly or limping
*Hesitant to jump up into car or climb stairs
*Licking and guarding sore joints
*Changes in behavior- they may seem more β€˜cranky’ due to the pain.

How can you help your pet?

Your vet can help diagnose and determine the ideal arthritis plan for your pet which may include anti inflammatory medication along with

*Soft padded, raised bedding
*Making sure their sleeping area is warm and draft free
*Joint supplements and diets
*Regular walks to help keep them fit and maintain a healthy weight
