🌸 K the Kelpie 🌸
Meet Miss K, a beautiful young kelpie. Here she is having a snooze while she recovers from her surgery. And yes, she does have 3 different blankets to keep her comfortable and warm.
Our wonderful Vet Nurses along with our Vets ensure our patients receive excellent care and attention to keep them comfortable whilst in hospital - this includes cuddles and sweet words as well as adequate pain relief.
K made all of our hearts melt, she is such a sweetie. 💕
🎄 CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS 🎄
If you weren’t aware... it’s Christmas Season! Fun and sparkly decorations are up and your pets may find them exciting too! Pets love to play and may choose your sparkly decorations as their new favourite toys. This is not only messy but can be dangerous too.
An alternative to a traditional Christmas Tree with hanging ornaments, you could have a Christmas Tree wall decoration instead. All the glamour without the danger. ✅

🎃 Happy Halloween! 🎃
Did you know that the single most dangerous tick for cats in Australia is the paralysis tick? .
Ticks are small blood-sucking parasites and once they attach to your cat, they start to produce a potent toxin that affects their central nervous system and causes progressive paralysis and possible death. .
Don’t let this be a scary one for you and your cat this season and use Bravecto for a longer-lasting flea and paralysis tick protection.
🙀 HELP?! MY CAT IS SCRATCHING MY FURNITURE 🙀
Scratching is a normal behaviour, but sometimes cats will scratch in inappropriate places - like your couch.
WHAT CAN I DO?
FELISCRATCH by FELIWAY can help. Apply it to a scratching post and it sends a message to the cat, both visual (blue lines) and invisible (“pheromones”) that encourages the cat to scratch there.

DOES YOUR PET NEED A HAIRCUT? ✂️ Team Albert can clip off your pet’s winter coat. Our clips aren’t fancy, just short and tidy and are performed under sedation - for those pets who are unable to be clipped by professional groomers.
Clipping off long fur can allow your pet to be cooler in warm weather, AND it makes it easier to find those dreaded ticks!
Call us if you would like to book your pet in for a spa day at the Vet!
