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 range of toys and treats as a loyalty thank you for all our 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.

Our waiting room will begin the festive season on Wednesday 2ND December.   Simply purchase any professional formula food in a 1.5kg or larger bag.  We will, of course, be running separate dog and cat trees to avoid any toy confusion!

As always, you can also use your loyalty cards to earn and then redeem free food, with all brands sold at Greensborough & Rosanna Veterinary Clinics.

Thank you for your loyalty with your food purchases.

 

 

COVID-19 has seen a massive increase in the number of animals recently adopted.  This is an exciting and fun time for families.  Hopefully, everyone understands this is a life-time commitment. 

Many lost pets, including young pups and kittens are never returned to their owners because they do not have any form of identification.  Microchips are a way of permanently identifying your pet for life.

A microchip is a tiny electronic device about the size of a grain of rice that uses radio waves to transmit stored information when it is read by a scanner.  Microchips store a unique identification number and do not wear out.  They are made of a material that is compatible with body tissue, so rejection at the site is unheard of.

 Recently, many of us have had a lot more time at home, meaning we have the time to train and rear a new puppy or kitten.

The COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to an increase in the number of people seeking out a new companion to help with the isolation and anxiety related to the pandemic.  This has seen a spike in the number of puppy scams reported, causing a massive financial loss to uneducated puppy owners-to-be.

Dogs and puppies of all ages love Kong toys. They are ideal for chasing and fetching or for solo play. Kong are durable rubber dog toys that are soft and satisfying for your pets to chew, while still being strong enough to stand up to aggressive play. Kong dog toys were built for chewing, keeping your dog's teeth and jaws healthy and exercised while they play.

Beyond toys, Kong dog treats make the perfect rewards for good behaviour, motivational aids for training or just to show your pet how much you love them.

Kong toys come in a variety of types and sizes to suit all breeds.
