Today, we honor the brave men and women who sacrificed everything for our freedom. On this ANZAC Day, we pay tribute to the courage, service, and sacrifice of our Australian and New Zealand soldiers. Let us never forget their contributions and the spirit of camaraderie that defines our nations.

Take a moment of silence at dawn to remember those who served and those who continue to serve. Lest we forget.

Meet Pixie, one of the best equine patients we could have the pleasure to care for.

Pixie spent the day at our clinic stable so we could run some tests to rule out equine metabolic syndrome and Cushings.

Dr Banjo and nurse Kira are pictured here taking some X-rays to determine the extent of her laminitis.

๐ŸŽ Laminitis is a serious condition affecting horses' hooves, causing inflammation and pain in the sensitive laminae, which connect the hoof wall to the coffin bone. It can be triggered by various factors like diet, obesity, overexertion, or metabolic issues. Early detection and prompt veterinary care are crucial for managing laminitis and preventing long-term damage.

We love our furry friends like family and sometimes feel guilt tripped into feeding them the yummy food we get to eat.

As a result of feeding cooked bones this little one received a crown-root slab fracture of the upper carnassial tooth which as you could imagine was a very painful experience.

If you have any questions about your pets diet we are happy to answer them.

๐Ÿšจ PSA for Pet Parents! ๐Ÿšจ

๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ• Did you know that raisins can be hazardous to our furry friends? ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‡

๐Ÿšซ Despite their small size, raisins and grapes can cause big problems for dogs, potentially leading to kidney failure. Even a small amount can be toxic and should be kept far away from your pets.

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ๐Ÿถ If you suspect your pet has ingested raisins, seek veterinary care immediately. Symptoms may include vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, and decreased urination.

๐Ÿ’ก Prevention is key! Be mindful of foods containing raisins, such as trail mix and certain baked goods, and ensure they are safely stored away from curious noses.

๐Ÿพ Let's keep our furry friends safe and healthy!

๐Ÿšจ Attention Pet Parents! ๐Ÿšจ

๐Ÿซ๐Ÿพ Did you know that chocolate can be toxic to our furry friends? ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿซ

๐Ÿšซ As tempting as it may be to share that tasty treat with your pet, please remember that chocolate is toxic for your pets. Even small amounts can lead to serious health issues, including vomiting, diarrhea, rapid breathing, increased heart rate, and even seizures.

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ๐Ÿถ If you suspect your pet has ingested chocolate, don't wait! Seek immediate veterinary assistance. The sooner we intervene, the better the outcome for your beloved companion.

๐Ÿ’ก Prevention is key! Keep all chocolate products safely out of reach of your pets, and be extra cautious during holidays like Easter when chocolate treats are abundant.

๐Ÿพ Attention dog owners! ๐Ÿพ

We love our furry friends, but accidents happen! One common mishap during outdoor adventures or dogs having access to sheds unsupervised is dogs getting fish hooks stuck in their mouths (There is nothing like the smell of rotting fish bait to make you want to take a bite)๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐ŸŽฃ It's a painful and potentially dangerous situation for your beloved pup.

If your canine companion has encountered this issue, don't panic! ๐ŸšจWith gentle care and skilled expertise, we'll safely remove the fish hook and ensure your furry friend is back to wagging their tail in no time.

Remember, prevention is key! Keep a close eye on your pup during fishing trips or walks near water, and always properly dispose of fishing gear. ๐ŸŽฃ Let's keep those tails wagging and those mouths hook-free! ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’™

Pictured is a curious pup who found himself in this predicament last Friday.

Introducing Nurse L E I H A!!!

Leiha completed her Bachelor of Animal Science in 2021 before becoming a Nurse at Fur Life Vet Dubbo in May 2023. She is continuing her studies and half way through A Bachelor of Veterinary Technology. Her passion is large animals, particularly horses and cattle.

She grew up on a property in Wellington before moving to Wagga Wagga for Uni and now resides in Dubbo.

Leiha's collection of fur babies are
3 dogs (Odie, Luna & Jax), 6 horses and a whole menagerie of animals back in Wellington on the farm.

We are so grateful to have Leiha on the team!

H A P P Y I N T E R N A T I O N A L W O M E N ' S D A Y

There is no denying our industry is dominated by women, particularly our nursing teams. These women are some of the strongest you will meet.

They'll risk being scratched up by feisty cats.
They'll wrestle pigs in a field.
They'll risk getting kicked by horses.
They'll risk dog bites.

All of which are pretty brave, but we think the most incredible trait these women have are their emotional strength.

They'll be the ones to hold your beloved pet and whisper beautiful words to them while they take their last breath because you couldn't be there.
They have to put beautiful little kittens to sleep because the shelters are over run.
They'll take home multiple pets (even if their family wont be happy with them) just to save them from being put to sleep.
They'll show up even after dealing with abusive pet owners.

Please join us in wishing not only the amazing women in the veterinary industry but all of the women in your life a wonderful International Womens Day ๐ŸŽ‰
