Congratulations to Claire McCarthy, the owner of Dougal the 17-month-old Poodle x, who is the winner of our Bayer-Advocate competition.

Claire purchased her Advocate-flea, heartworm & intestinal worming product at our Greensborough Hospital and has now won a Dyson vacuum valued at $599.

The Dyson V8 Animal Extra Cordless will be handy to pick up the dog and cat hair in the McCarthy home.

Claire was asked what she thinks her pet dreams about?

I am sure Dougal dreams about chasing his cat siblings.

Congratulations Claire.

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.
