Last week, snake bite season begun. It is a bit early but we definitely encountered a few snake bites and a […]

I totally empathize with the mourning of this Victorian family and definitely support stricter laws being enforced by the government. These laws should include harsher penalties for the owners of un-contained aggressive dogs to […]

This was my weekend on emergency call. Fortunately being on emergency call has become second nature to me. I don’t stress or sit and dread hearing the emergency phone ring anymore. I mostly do errands and have the mobile handy and my brain is wired into emergency mode! While I have had a cruisy weekend […]

I obviously meet lots of dogs and cats every day and I connect and adore all my patients. However, I definitely sometimes develop an instant connection with a pet for whatever reason and feel quite bonded to it. It is not uncommon to feel like your own pet chose you and you could not resist! […]

Meet Bruno, the friendliest Maremma I have ever met. He is living proof that any breed of dog is capable of being well socialised! This champ is one of my fave patients.
