WEBWIRE – Tuesday, December 18, 2012

There is a new staff member manning reception at the Ark Veterinary Hospital. Sugar, a small Border Terrier, is coming to work with one of her new owners Julia Churcher, who is one of the Hospitalís Surgeons.

Julia practices what she teaches and shares with her customers at the Clinic. Sugar is receiving her regular worming, tick treatment and vaccinations as is important for all young pets and also has her own Facebook page ! She will attend the Ark Vets Puppy School in January and is already progressing well with early basic training using a Rogz Obedience half-check-chain and is already doing 30 seconds of lead training 3 times a day with Julia. One class mate for Sugar in January at the Ark Vet Puppy School will be Griffin, a young Chocolate Labrador puppy.

Another staff member involved with caring for Sugar is Jen, the Groomer who will be helping Sugar look her best to greet the staff and clients as the arrive. Owners are encouraged to maintain regular grooming for their pets. Often keeping fur trimmed over the summer aids in keeping pets cooler and avoids the risks of matting fur. Owners should check their pets daily if not more after playing outside to avoid the risk of skin allergies and due to the high risk of Ticks which can cause extreme distress if not death to a beloved pet.

Julia and the other staff at Ark Veterinary Hospital encourage owners and people who are considering owning a pet to be aware of Tick Season. They warn that they see a lot of Paralysis Tick cases that present with a number of different symptoms and are not always easily diagnosed.

Owners and pet carers are warned to be aware of altered behaviour in their pets like lethargy, vomiting, unusual lameness or coughing. If these symptoms are present and their tick prevention regime is not up-to-date, the cause of the above symptoms is most likely a tick. †It should be treated as an emergency with the pet seen by a vet immediately. For more information visit www.arkvets.com.au or their Facebook page, or ring Julia or Joe on 02 9416 1300.
