Snakes are out again...
With the warm spring weather, snakes are out and about again, sunbaking and coming out of hibernation. Since the most common snakes you will see are highly venomous, if you see your pet with any snake, please have them checked by your veterinarian immediately. Snake bites are often fatal for pets, but antivenom is available if we see your pet early enough.

Is your cat scared to visit their vet?
Cats are true creatures of habit, so any change to their routine is scary. This includes visits to the vet. However, for their best health, they do need to see their veterinarian regularly. So we want to help you make these visits as easy and stress-free as possible, for both you and your cat.
Click here for some tricks to reduce your cat's stress at the vet clinic.
Have we seen your cat recently?
About 35% of cats aren't seen by a veterinarian each year for a health check. Is your cat one of these?
Cats are great at hiding illness, often not showing signs until a disease is quite advanced. However, yearly health checks can pick up early signs and will ensure that your cat is kept in the best health possible.
So if it has been a while since your cat has visited the vet, please make an appointment today.

Did you know Australia has one of the highest rates of FIV (Feline AIDS) infection in the world?
About 18% of cats in South Australia are positive for FIV, the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus responsible for Feline AIDS infection.
Is your cat one of them?
Feline AIDS is an incurable disease spread through fight wounds. Hence, if your cat goes outside, it is at risk of becoming infected with the virus. Fortunately, there is a vaccination available that can protect your precious pet from this deadly disease.
For more information on FIV, please click here to visit our cat vaccination page.

If you are concerned your cat may be at risk, or for more information on Feline AIDS and the vaccine available, please contact your clinic.
