Annual Christmas Charity Drive

As many of our Moffat Beach Vet family know, every year we hold a Christmas appeal in order to bring a little bit of santa-goodness to those animals still looking for their furever homes. This year, donations will be given to the animal rescue group, Silver Lining. Much appreciated donations may consist of:
• Food
• Treats
• Newspaper and litter
• Food bowls
• Towels and blankets
• Washing liquid
• Leads and collars
• Jackets and coats for winter 

You can make a difference to those pets who don’t have homes over Christmas. Drop off your donations to the clinic and we will pass them onto Silver LIning volunteers. With every donation we will add a tag to our Christmas Tree, to say thank you for your support!

Keep your pets cool over Summer!
The hot, humid Summer days are stifling. Our pets can become stressed and die if they become overheated. Watch for excessive panting, vomiting, collapse, lethargy and in severe cases seizures. If you are at all concerned about your pet please contact the clinic on 5491 1056. Seek emergency treatment as soon as possible.
Top tips to help your pets keep their cool when the thermometer rises.
  • NEVER leave your pets in a car. Even in a mild summers day the car can heat up to deadly levels very quickly.
  • Have pets in the house where possible, or a well ventilated area.
  • Always ensure access to areas of shade if outside.
  • On particularly hot days leave out additional buckets of water. Multiple buckets/containers is ideal in case one gets knocked over.
  • Freeze treats or raw chicken bones in an ice-cream container full of water overnight. It will keep your dog entertained and cool the next day.
  • Clam shell pools full of water can offer relief in the extreme heat.
  • Don't exercise or walk in the heat of the day.
  • Be careful walking pets on concrete or roads on hot days. It can get very hot and burn foot pads

Baby's Christmas Present List:  

  • Tash = CD of “Baby’s greatest hits” so Tash has some great music to listen to while tooling around in her mini van. Hits include my rendition of “The Addams Family”, “Pop Goes the Weasel”, “Wolf Whistle Blues” and “Baby is Great (Caloundra Music Festival Edition)”
  • Alex = A box of paracetamol to cure her headaches when she has had enough of me screaming at her in the morning (any left overs can be used to poison her cats – hee hee hee)

Jo = new hearing aids so she can appreciate Tash’s gift

  • Dr Linda = autographs (read – bite marks) over important paperwork to remind her that there are more important things in life than doing paperwork (ie me!!!)
  • Dr Vanessa = a one way ticket to the nearest mental institution – I mean, the woman keeps pet rats – seriously!

Meowy Christmas wishes....
