Hello to all our lovely clients in Northeast Victoria,

We have now passed mid-winter and days will soon be noticeably longer. I know some of our four-legged friends are loving the cold weather and find extra energy in icy conditions, while others are hesitant to get wet feet.
COVID 19 has continued to wreak havoc and uncertainty on all of our lives, but those people who have pets and other animals in their lives benefit from their presence as a distraction and a focus for your daily activities. So give them all a big hug and thank them for being there in your lives.
With discussion about infectious disease control and the importance of vaccinations a part of our daily news bulletins and conversation, the parallels with our pet’s health are clear. Dangerous infectious diseases like Parvo virus in dogs, Feline AIDS in Cats, or Strangles in horses continue to circulate through our region. Parvovirus has claimed the lives of unvaccinated dogs in northern Victoria in recent weeks.

Are your pet’s vaccinations up to date? We have found many vaccinations have been missed due to the pandemic disruptions, so please contact us to check if your pet is overdue for its annual vaccination and health check.

New Clinic Update

The construction of our new veterinary hospital has had a very frustrating pause for almost two months. Initially, we had to suspend building work while some structural engineering issues were resolved and adjustments made to the roof and wall structure and appropriate material sourced. However, the latest COVID outbreaks then prevented the building team from returning back on site.

Fortunately, new Victorian-based builders have been organised and work has resumed. Our fingers are crossed that we will be free of any more holdups and you will see lots of action on site in Harper Avenue over the next few months.

Please check out our Facebook page for video updates of the construction work.
