Ho Ho Ho….It’s time for Santa to set-up those trees in our waiting room again.   The always popular Christmas Tree’s will be adorned with a new range of toys and treats as a loyalty thank you for all our Eukanuba & Royal Canin food users.

It’s easy -purchase your food, then choose a toy from our tree. The hard part is choosing the right gift when there is so much variety!  Then, place it on the tree at home, so that every family member has a gift on Christmas morning.

Deciding when is the right time to put our beloved pet’s “to sleep” is the most agonising decision we can make for them.  The decision needs to be made according to the “quality of life” the pet is experiencing.  There are many reasons this can be based upon:

  • medication can no longer effectively control pain management
  • pet has poor prognosis
  • they have decreased mobility

Sometimes the bond between owner and pet will tell you when the time is right.

One of the first faces you meet upon entering the Greensborough Veterinary Hospital is Tracey Collins, our receptionist.

Tracey joined our team in August 2010.  She came to us with a wealth of experience in office and reception management.  We put this ability to the test during our busy periods.  We find that Tracey has the skills to ensure our waiting area is running smoothly by ensuring consultations are on time, directing phone calls and keeping all staff up to date with client communications, all done politely with her quiet demeanour.  Through staff training Tracey has a sound knowledge on heartworm and flea prevention along with dietary/food advice. Tracey is responsible for the maintenance of our professional food range and keeping up to date with the availability of prescription diets.

We would like to introduce you to Ernie, who belongs to Jill Whincup, a long-time loyal client at Greensborough.

Ernie is a pedigree Keeshond who comes from a long line of top winning Keeshonden, not only from Australia but from around the world. From his first day in the show ring Ernie was destined to be a great success.  He showed the poise and charm, along with great genetics to stand out amongst his peers in the judging ring.

Ernie has a pedigree name that he must use to enter dog shows, Australian Grand Champion Hunkeedori Mister Party Man, but answers to Ernie on any day. His pedigree name and microchip distinguish Ernie form all other Keeshonds and dogs in general, around Australia and the world … it is his unique name, just like yours and mine.
