While we attempt to keep our body temperature over 12 degrees, let’s not forget about our four-legged friends as winter warmer ideas can help all family members!
As the winter chill sets it, so does the risk of arthritis in our feline friends. Commonly known as osteoarthritis (OA) or degenerative joint disease, arthritis causes pain and inflammation as a result of abnormal changes in joint condition.
We humans take our teeth very seriously! Despite the dreaded visits to the dentist, nothing beats a pearly white smile. The same goes for our furry friends!
The other month you may have noticed the absence of Dr Colin's smiling face at Pascoe Vale; this is because he was jet-setting around the US trying to squeeze more facts into his little brain.
Keeping our pearly whites strong and healthy takes a lot of work. Brushing twice a day, flossing and the list goes on. Who doesn’t love a trip to the dentist twice (if we are really good) a year?
In August this year, Dr Victoria is on leave for two weeks to volunteer for Mission Rabies.
Did you know that we hold two puppy pre-school classes at our clinic per week?
Ever wondered what your vet does outside of work? Maybe you’ve seen me swinging my leg over my bike (affectionately known as ‘Michael’) or flicking on my Garmin (‘Paskey’) in the car park at Pascoe Vale Veterinary Hospital as I set off on my 13 kilometre run home.
Ollie and Lily are the loveliest little poodle crosses that you’ll ever meet. Donned with ‘his’ and ‘hers’ harnesses and matching haircuts they are inseparable ‘twins’.
A warm welcome to Dr Victoria Cole who recently joined our Pascoe Vale Vet team. Victoria completed her veterinary studies in Cambridge, UK, taking an extra year to intercalate with a degree in conservation and ecology.
