Vitality Vetcare will be providing advice to pet owners throughout March on how to overcome some common behavioural pet problems.

Dr. Megan Kearney said that there are often underlying causes which once identified can help owners to resolve these problem behaviours.

The introduction of other animals, changes to daily routine or a medical condition may be the reason your pet isn’t doing what you want it to do.rsz scared cat

Punishment is not the solution Use rewards to train your pets. And the earlier you do something about it the better the outcome.”

We have information available on our fact sheet page for pet owners. Including information sheets on anxiety, fears and phobias in dogs, anxiety in cats and fears in birds. rsz bitingparrot 

 

If you would like further information feel free to call us and speak with a nurse or make an appointment to see Megan.

Colic in Horses

on Thursday, 12 September 2013. Posted in Vitality Vetcare Latest News and Events

Information for Horse Owners

Colic in Horses

The team at Vitality Vetcare have seen a number of horses with colic recently. The term 'colic' describes abdominal pain in horses (and babies). Most horses are affected by a bout of colic at some point in their life.

It is a condition that is feared by horse owners because of the potentially catstrophic outcome. Colic can be fatal for horses, however the far majority of cases of colic respond to simple treatment. If veterinary advice is sought early and the appropriate treatments are given, a positive outcome is usually achieved.

If you suspect that your horse has colic please call Vitality Vetcare on 6687 0675 or your nearest vet asap.

Springtime Is Snake Time!

on Wednesday, 11 September 2013. Posted in Vitality Vetcare Latest News and Events

How to stay safe around snakes

Springtime Is Snake Time!

Snakes are out and about taking advantage of the warm dry weather. Males are active in the Spring earlier than females and are on the lookout for food and a mate.They tend to be the ones you see killed on the road. Research suggests that there are on average 300 snakes per sqare kilometer in our region. This includes non-venemous snakes such as carpet snakes as well as venemous snakes such as the Eastern Brown snake. The clearing of land for agriculture and human habitation has created ideal conditions for many snake species to thrive, including Eastern Brown snakes. Many snakes provide free pest control by hunting house mice and rats.

This photo is of a well fed Eastern Brown snake seen sunning itself in Megan's garden in August. Please be aware of snakes and how to live with them.

PLEASE DON'T RISK BEING BITTEN BY TRYING TO KILL THE SNAKE AND DON'T DELAY VETERINARY TREATMENT FOR SNAKE BITE

Please call 6687 0675 immediately if you suspect your pet may have been bitten by a snake

TICK TOC TIC TOC

on Tuesday, 10 September 2013. Posted in Vitality Vetcare Latest News and Events

TICK TOC TIC TOC

Tick time is in full swing and vets are predicting a particularly bad season.

Although paralysis ticks (Ixodes holocyclus) can be found all year round, the peak season is spring and summer, when warm weather combines with periods of rain. As a result of our mild, wet winter, breeding conditions for the paraylsis tick have been exceptional.  

It is important we are aware of this and check our pets regularly. We are all aware that ticks are often found in backyards, in long grass and in parks or bushland, but did you know that some ticks are small enough to be blown in on the wind? So regardless of where you live or where you take your pet it is still vitally important to take the right precautions.

 

Wildlife at Vitality Vetcare

on Wednesday, 04 September 2013. Posted in Vitality Vetcare Latest News and Events

Wildlife at Vitality Vetcare

With Winter behind us and Spring now in the air, the team at Vitality Vetcare have been busy helping local wildlife groups care for injured wildlife.

At this time of year many animals will be on the move in search of food and a mate, and there are plenty of young babies being born or hatched. This increase in animal activity comes with an increase in the number of native animals that are finding themselves sick, injured or orphaned. 

 

Sharing Loss and Celebrating Connection

on Tuesday, 20 August 2013. Posted in Vitality Vetcare Latest News and Events

Pet Loss Support Group

Sharing Loss and Celebrating Connection

Vitality Vetcare will be hosting a Sharing Loss and Celebrating Connection support evening. The group will be facilitated by Felicity Grace who is a highly experienced and creative counsellor.

Felicity says “We do not have rituals and ceremonies in our culture which allow us to explore all the significant feelings of belonging and loss which humans face. Loss of a pet is often put aside before anyone has had time to honour the gift of this relationship bond between human and animal and without exploring the emotions of grief and loss and aloneness that well up with death.”

This group will give space and expression to the experience of losing a beloved companion animal and celebrate and re-connect to the sense of belonging we share with our animals and the earth.

The date for the evening is yet to be confirmed but expressions of interest are welcomed. Please call Vitality Vetcare on 6687 0675 or follow the link to  Vitality Vetcare and email us. Cost for the evening is $35.

Care of Older Pets

on Wednesday, 19 June 2013. Posted in Vitality Vetcare Latest News and Events

Care of Older Pets

The recent cold nights are a good reminder to consider the needs of your older pet. Once your dog or cat has reached the age of 7 years or 5 years for large dogs over 25kg, they are beginning to enter their senior years. Click here to find out how old your pet is in human years

Like us, the physical, mental and emotional needs of your pets change as they become older. The feeding and exercise routines you’ve been using may no longer be appropriate. As cats and dogs get older, they are at increased risk of developing health problems and should receive more frequent veterinary check-ups. Early detection of disease is the key to ensuring that your pet has as long and healthy a life as possible.

The team at Vitality Vetcare, Bangalow can advise you on the health needs of older pets. We are passionate about optimal nutrition and the role of integrative medicine in preventative health. Therapies such as acupuncture, herbal medicine or homeopathy can be very useful in the early stages of illness, chronic disease and palliative care.
