People in these three Council Areas cannot have visitors in their home, including social visits from family and friends outside of their household.

The reasons you may leave your home include:

Not just QLD, NSW also has a massive shortage of veterinarians and support staff 🥰 We try to do our best

Dr Kate works at our Coomera practice and is a new graduate. 👩‍🎓 Did you know that a Bachelor of Veterinary Science takes 5-6 years of full time study to achieve? It also has an entry score of OP1 or ATAR 98.85 and the degree can take 20 years to pay off. 😳

The award wage for a new graduate veterinarian is $26.32 per hour or $53,000. The award for an experienced senior veterinarian with more than 10 years experience earns $37.93 per hour or $75,000.

Sadly, our vets are told ‘You’re just in it for the money’ almost every single day, so I feel it necessary to educate the public on how much they actually earn in the hope this statement will not be said again. 😕

These high achievers are paid very poorly for the level of skill & education required and the stress they are under daily. They are truly in the job as they have a calling to help animals and deserve to be treated with respect & kindness. 🐶💕🙏🏼

One of the reasons the industry is suffering from a severe veterinary shortage is the high drop out rate. Vets are leaving the industry in droves and studies have shown the main reason for them leaving is not the poor pay & working conditions but the abuse and emotional blackmail from clients. This has to stop before there are no vets left. The Veterinary industry is in danger of collapse! 🛑✋

There are currently over 130 positions vacant for veterinarians between the Sunshine Coast & Gold Coast. The average time it takes to find a new vet in Australia is 6months and many of these jobs won’t get filled at all. Practice Owners are also selling up because they can’t get help & are burnt out. 😪Corporate ownership of veterinary practices on the Gold Coast is now nearing 60%. The family vet is becoming extinct so please choose a family owned vet wherever possible. 🙏🏼

Despite the terrible position the industry is in, I again want to say ‘Thank you’ to our clients who bring joy to the faces of our vets and nurses daily and treat them with kindness. You really make a difference to our day and we love it when you visit!! 🤗🙏🏼🥰

To those who want to say ‘You’re just in it for the money’ or ‘If you cared you’d do this free’, I hope after reading this post you never want to say that again. These statements are literally killing vets and are so far from the truth it’s not funny.

We’re working really hard to ensure our vets love their job because there are not many left and a world without vets is a very scary place. 😔

Please be kind to vets, they’re a dying breed. 👩‍⚕️ 🐾

If you see this produced by your dog then get it to a vet ASAP as it is going to get very sick if not die if left untreated. This was from one of our patients today!

MOUSE & RAT BAITS!!

Over the last few months, we have seen a huge number of dogs & cats with rat/mouse bait toxicity.
Mice are in plague proportions, & baits are laid in many places.
No matter what the package says, there is no safe bait to have around your pets.
Secondary poisoning is very common, & is just as deadly as the dog or cat eating the bait itself.
If you suspect your animal has eaten a bait, or a poisoned rodent, please call the clinic on 02)68849777
Some Signs & symptoms include,
• Pale gums, or small pinpoint haemorrhages.
• Anorexia (not eating)
• Lethargy
• Bleeding from the nose
• Vomiting &/or Diarrhoea
• Coughing &/or laboured breathing.
Treatment will depend on the severity of the toxicity & time of ingestion. In some cases, a blood transfusion is required.

A WARNING FOR FERAL PIG HUNTERS

A huge number of wild pigs in Australia are believed to be infected with leptospirosis.

The Queensland Murray Darling Committee is funding a research project into the feral pig with the hope of finding better ways to control numbers.

The research at four sites, Arcadia Valley and Miles in Queensland and Glen Innes and Moree in New South Wales, involves tracking 64 pigs for almost 12 months.

Blood tests have uncovered that a quarter of all feral pigs are carrying leptospirosis and a smaller number are also infected with brucellosis

The disease is a risk to pigs hunters, their dogs and cattle.

“Obviously when people hunt pigs they are exposed to blood and all different parts of the animal and they can contract leptospirosis or brucellosis from those animals,” Darren Marshall, the Regional Co-Ordinator for Feral Animals at QMDC.

In humans, without treatment, leptospirosis can lead to kidney and liver damage and even death.

Thank you all so much for looking after our boy Frankfurt, he is doing really well. You guys are AMAZING 🐾
Thank you everyone for looking after Geoffrey so well. He just ate every scrap of his dinner and is back into clawing the carpet and other activities he’s missed out on over the weekend. He says thanks for having him.
Thank you for looking after Geoffrey and Smarty. They are jumping out of their skin this morning. Must be a weight off their minds.😂 Geoffrey says thanks for nothing!
Thank you for looking after Pat the Cat. He is very happy to be back on the lap of his favourite person.
Dear Ross Sarah, Hayley and staff... I would like to thank you and staff for your kindness,professionalism and dedication to Phoebe. I would like to thank you Ross for your caring support, it was greatly appreciated. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking care of Phoebe for the past 5 1/2 years. Ross you and your team The Best of the Best Sincerely Ingrid
Pat The Cat is very grateful to everyone for helping him to recover from his beating by an intruder cat. The dog is less impressed as he’s taken over her bed. Thank you everyone for looking after the boy.
Thank you so much to Ross, Ben and Sam for looking after old Honey and not giving up. She is eating again after 3 days and enjoying a bit of lawn pick and a hose down.
Thank you very much Ben and Sarah for looking after Pat The Cat after his 3rd snake altercation. It’s going to be a fun week keeping him in. Hopefully I can outwit him.
We are moving and I have just cleaned out my linen cupboard. Would the surgery like any old towels, sheets, mattress protectors, etc for the animals to use as bedding?
Can you please let Ben know that Pat The Cat is back to his normal mischievous self? Thank you for making him better.
