Leptospirosis in Sydney

Leptospirosis is a nasty bacterial disease which causes severe illness in dogs and can be fatal. It is also dangerous to humans, and is passed on by contact with urine of infected animals, commonly feral rats. The bacteria can also live in the soil, water or food and can enter the skin through cuts or bites.There have recently been cases reported in Sydney, mainly in the Surrey Hills/Glebe area but including Centennial Park. 6 dogs have died. If you take your dog to Sydney, Dr Judith recommends that your dog is vaccinated before your next trip, to protect them from Leptospirosis.

Blood donors wanted!

Did you know that pets sometimes need blood transfusions? Animals may become anaemic or have severe blood loss due to disease, trauma or surgery. Here's Bruce the brave cattle dog with Vet Nurse Hannah. Bruce was a blood donor for us recently when a pet had an after hours emergency. Thank you Bruce and Hannah! We are always looking out for pets who might be able to be blood donors. Is your dog or cat very calm in nature? We will have special "thank you" gifts for a dog or cat who donates blood. Contact reception on 6360 3071 if you are interested.
