Million Paws Walk

million paws 2019 advert

Sadly the RSPCA Million Paws Walk in Orange has had to be cancelled this year. But if your dog likes a good walk, and you like raising funds for the RSPCA, then there's still plenty of time to register for the walk in Bathurst. See www.millionpawswalk.com.au for details. Happy Walking!

Autumn chills

Some cooler nights are coming through! Your outdoor pets might appreciate a raised bed or an extra blanket as the nights get colder. But the chill in the air can trigger stiffness in older pets. If your pet looks stiff or sore in the mornings, that might possibly be the first sign of arthritis, so book your pet in for a check up with us. Ring 6360 3071 for an appointment now.

Hills have announced a voluntary recall of some of their canned dog food. This is due to the possibility of increased levels of Vitamin D in some products. There has only been one case, in the USA, of a dog becoming sick from high Vitamin D levels but Hills are withdrawing stock in Australia as a precaution (the dog made a full recovery!). The Hills website has a list of the cans affected and these can be identified by the codes on each can. If you have any of the affected cans please return them to Mulberry Lane Vet Hospital for a refund, or contact Hills on 1800 679 932.
Click to the Hills website and the list of products here https://www.hillspet.com.au/productlist.
And if you have any concerns, any difficulty identifying the cans or with what to do, please phone us on 6360 3071.

Beat the Heat

 

The heat this weekend will be severe - please watch out for all animals, and make sure they have access to shade and plenty of water. Remember, cats and dogs can't sweat to keep cool like humans can, and only have the skin on their paw pads to sweat through. That's not much when you are wearing fur or running around!  Make sure your pets don't overheat by keeping them inside or in a shady area. Provide plenty of water and a fan or airconditioning if possible. Some dogs love to sit in a small paddling pool, or to have icecubes in their water bowls. Frozen treats can be fun - chicken stock (no salt!) makes great icecubes for them to lick, or put a favourite snack frozen into an iceblock which they can then lick out. Give walks a miss in very hot weather, or go out at dawn. In the evenings or after dark, the pavements can still be too hot for a dog's paws. Its not safe for dogs to ride on the back of utes in extreme heat as even with a rubber mat to stand on, the tray can still get dangerously hot and dogs need shade.
