Well COVID has affected us once again and we’re back to carpark consults. We really appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding and hopefully we’ll be letting you in again soon. If you need to see our full COVID policy just check out our website.
It has gotten cold and I don’t know about your pets but mine spend 90% of their time within one metre of the fire. Winter has brought with it more arthritic patients and more senior patient issues so we’ve enjoyed using our senior promotion to get ahead of our oldies aches and pains.
Winter has also meant it is soccer and AFL season! We have enjoyed watching the clubs we sponsor, Thornleigh Thunders and Penno Demons dominate on the field and want to give a particular shout out to Penno’s Kickability program, which is for mobile kids with disabilities keen to try AFL. What a great initiative.
Winter has also meant sponsorship of the Thornleigh West Public School’s Colour run and I am enjoying finally getting back out into the community and doing a few talks such as a presentation on Koala care to Warrawee Public School’s After School Care program as part of their broader conservation project on Koalas.
We were also extremely chuffed to receive a Pride of Workmanship Award from Hornsby Rotary after being nominated by one of our clients. What an honour to be recognised for the work we do in our community and I am very lucky to have a team that works so tirelessly for your pets.
Some of the team have taken the opportunity in the quieter months to get away. Kirstie headed North to visit her sister and Tania went even further North to Queensland to catch some rays. Unfortunately Kristy and Prue had holiday plans thwarted due to border restrictions and lockdown but hopefully both of us will manage some time off soon.
With sadness I've also got to inform you all our wonderful vet Mel is leaving us end of July. Mel is moving on to a new challenge and a shorter commute so we can't argue with that. We will miss her so much and wish her all the best in her new role. Hopefully she'll visit us occasionally! We're currently recruiting for a new superstar vet so will keep you posted.
Keep an eye out for an email regarding our upcoming dental promotion in August & September. Stay warm and healthy all.
Dr Prue Honson
