Pet Care

Pet care news and tips from our veterinary hospitals located in Adelaide's northern suburbs.

Most owners don’t routinely look in their animal’s mouths; it can be very difficult to get a really good look, especially towards the back of the mouth (where many dental issues can occur). Therefore we recommend you see your vet for regular dental checks, so that any problems can be quickly identified.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and for many of us, that means spending some quality time with our loved ones – be they two or four-legged, furred or not! However, for people in multi-pet households, it’s not always rainbows and roses; it can be especially difficult when two partners make the decision to move in together and subsequently, move the two fur-babies in together as well. It would be nice to assume that introducing new animals to each other and a new environment is as easy as throwing them in together and expecting them to just get along but unfortunately it is just not that simple. They are essentially step-kids and their whole world is being turned upside down, so here are a few tips to try and ease that tricky transition…

At Vets4Pets we have already seen a number of snake bite cases in both cats and dogs across the northern suburbs, including Angle Vale, Greenwith and Golden Grove. Brown and tiger snakes make up the majority of bites in South Australia. Snake bites are far more common in dogs and cats than in people; largely because our four legged companions don’t know to avoid them and think they are very exciting playthings!

It probably was an exhausting period for the wee tyke and after such adventure and hard work delivering Easter eggs around the world, it would be a great idea to have his/her health checked by your nearest Vets4Pets rabbit veterinarian. 

Obesity is becoming an epidemic in the developed world and our pets are following the trend. While general awareness of this problem is there, it can be much harder to do something about it in our pets.

Cat Bite abscesses are one of the most common problems we see at all our Vets4pets practices. Unless kept 100% indoors, many cats will encounter this problem. Cats are very territorial animals and intruders are not very welcome. Sometimes it may not be your cat picking the fight, there is always a local bully around waiting to pounce. 

Summer and swimming pools go hand in hand. Just as we get hot our pets are also tempted to have a dip when they are feeling too hot. While most of them are keen to go for a swim when the other family members are in the pool, some get more adventurous and get in water while we are away from home.

With the Bureau of Meteorology predicting a long hot dry summer, it is important to remember that grass seeds can give your pet a lot of grief.

With a hot summer approaching, it is important to remember the basics on how to keep your pets safe this season. Dogs, cats and especially rabbits and guinea pigs are prone to heat stress like we are. Spending prolonged periods of time in very hot and poor ventilated environment can cause heat stress in no time.
