Don't we all like to have delightful dogs, courteous cats and beautifully behaved birds?

March is Polite Pets Month aiming to educate pet owners about training and behaviour issues as well as encouraging owners to talk to their veterinarian for advice on their pets behaviour.

There are always so many questions about animal behaviour such as "Why does my dog bark?", "Why won't my cat use the litter tray?" and "How should I introduce my children to the new puppy?". To answer these questions and many more we have put together some helpful links to the Australian Veterinary Association website and other interesting videos and advice from specialists on animal behaviour and coping with fears and phobias.

Our head nurse Jenna is also currently studying behaviour and training through the Delta Society and will be one of teh first vet nurses in Orange to complete this course allowing her to conduct behavioural consults and assist in developing our Puppy Pre-School further.

Real Cases:

Jenna and one of our clients, young Brenton have been training their bunnies who are very smart little animals! Jenna's rabbit Pumpkin is house trained and uses the kitty litter whenever she is inside while Brenton's rabbit Yasmin has been taught to return to her hutch at 4pm every day. To do this Brenton and Jenna have used patience, persistance and rewards! Pumpkin loves Oxbow Timothy Treats which we sell here in the HospitalĀ and Yasmin enjoys a grape.

We run Puppy Pre School here at Mulberry Lane and are offering $50 off desexing of cats and dogs for the month of March! All very important issues relating to well behaved pets! For more information click on the links below:
