TO HELP THINGS RUN SMOOTHLY:

~~ Make a time ~~
We will be unable to cater for walk-ins (and we hate saying no, so please don’t make us...)

~~ Bookings are time sensitive ~~
We can only allow set time-blocks per sitting, so come prepared & focused. Here are some tips

- Exercise your pet prior if they are overly excitable or full of beans
- Bring special treats or favourite toys to get their focus & attention
- Think about whether you would like to be in the photos and how you’would like to be positioned
- Once the timer goes off, your session is over, so help us help you get the most out of your time with Santa and the best possible photographs

~~ Extra pets are $5.00 each ~~
Extras must be part of same family. If you have friends and want photos together, no problem! However, this will be classed as separate bookings in regards to costs involved. Please ensure you let us know at time of booking so that we can allow extra time for extra bodies

~~ Be Patient and have FUN! ~~
We have run behind every single year. We always make it work, and always produce a great outcome for all involved, so please be patient. Sometimes, even the best laid out plans hit a bump in the road, so jump aboard, join us for the ride: for Santa Paws comes but once a year (and trust us, the photos are totally worth it...!)

BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL – LIMITED PLACES – PAYMENT ON DAY
CALL US ON (07) 3613 9644 ro EMAIL (info@toowongfamilyvet.com.au) TO MAKE A TIME!

Pet First Aid Course - September 14th, 2017

Toowong Family Vet's Pet First Aid Course IS BACK!

Do you know what to do in an emergency situation with your pet? More importantly, do you know how to determine what classifies as an emergency?

The ability to assess a situation for what it is, in addition to having the skills and knowledge to implement on-the-spot care for you pet - should you need to - can make all the difference. Not only with immediate life-saving intervention, but also with long-term prognosis.

Be a supawhero. Learn the skills. Gain the knowledge. Who knows, maybe even save a life...

INTERVENTION vs A LITTLE MORE ATTENTION: Where does your pet sit on the oral health-o-meter?

Not all pets need a dental scale and prophylaxis carried out. Some just need a little more time at home with dental cleaning, more dental chews or a dental additive like Hexarinse to help their little mouths out. Unsure what your pet needs? Call to make a FREE dental consultation* and find out what you can do to help your pet!

SANTA PAWS IS COMING TO TOWN!
30 October, 2016

WHAT TIME IS IT?

SANTA PAWS TIME!

Once again, the time has come for Santa Paws to jump in his sleigh and bestow hearty hugs and tasty treats upon all the furry family members across the globe. Luckily for us, Santa Paws has cleared his schedule for a WHOLE day so that he can pay special attention to the Toowong Family Vet pets!

Sunday November 20th marks the special day your pet can come along and get a pet pawtrait with Santa Paws himself at Toowong Family Vet! TFV will once again open the doors on Sunday (for Santa Paws Pawtraits only) so that we can focus purely on Santa and his pet pals, and so that the clinic can operate as usual on the Saturday for those animals requiring veterinary attention. So, why not come on down to see Santa Paws - the big guy himself has requested the attendance of all animals - big and small - to join in the Christmeows Celebrations!

Santa Paws Pet Pawtraits are being held at the clinic on November 20th, 2016 between 9:00am and 2:30pm.
Due to the increased interest and attendance as each year comes around, this year, all Santa Paws Pawtraits will require a booking. We have extended our sitting schedule to accommodate all bookings, but will unfortunately be unable to see walk-in pets. If all attendees are able to arrive 10 minutes prior to your booking, we will get your details, discuss package options and process payment. There will be some light refreshments for you, and yummy treats for our poochy and pussycat pals.

WHAT'S INVOLVED?

OPTION ONE
COST: $30.00 per sitting (multiple pets are welcome! Allow $5.00 extra per pet - must be from same family)
