2 August, 2016

August is Dental Month! Each year, veterinary clinic across the country do their best to promote dental health and preventative care and/or management for our furry companions!

85% of dogs and 70% of cats suffer from dental problems. Those numbers are staggering. Even more staggering is that many of our pets' dental issues often go unnoticed and therefore untreated. Dental health is directly linked to cardiac and renal health and as such, being proactive with your pets oral health can greatly impact their overall health in a very positive way!

VOTE FOR NORMAN: Dermcare Clinic Cat of the Year 2016
27 June, 2016

2015 was a magical year. A year that saw the birth of a country-wide competition: the Dermcare Clinic Cat of the Year. It was also the year that saw our own Norman crowned Queensland's Clinic Cat of the Year, and also place fourth nationally.

CCOTY 2015, commonly referred to by historians and cat-lovers alike, as "The Cat Fight of the Century," with cats across the land fighting tooth and nail to secure their place upon the throne and take home their crown. Even better than all things shiny and bejewelled, to have their already self-known amazingness and beauty confirmed by poll - by public opinion - was the ultimate prize.

While Norman was happy to be state champion and finish in the top four in the country, he spiralled into a deep depression having not taken the position of the Australia's 'top dog' - we mean, cat... He saw the loss as the ultimate low blow - so low, it was way below the collar.

Norman ate. And ate. If he was sad, he would eat. If he was hungry, he would turn hangry  - and in his hunger-driven rage - bite us and become destructive. Knocking things off desks or pushing items out of cupboards. Our poor jade plant sadly did not survive the months following Norman's public loss, and no number of pats or words of encouragement could make him see sense. Each night he cried his salty kitty cat tears. His pussycat pillow, tear-soaked and salt stained, a reminder of 'what could have been' - all that was so close, yet so so far...

Then. *CLICK*. Like a switch, he changed. We did not know why, we couldn't figure how how, but our Norman was a changed man. Then, we saw the email....

"REGISTER FOR DERMCARE CLINIC CAT OF THE YEAR 2016"

Oh. No.

Not again.

Alas, he has entered. Despite our concerns and our worry for what another loss may do to him. He's hungry again, but this time, it's for the National Title.

So, please. Please. For us - VOTE FOR NORMAN.
For our fingers and for our sanity - VOTE FOR NORMAN.

In haste and high hopes,

Kirsty, Tegan, Tahlia, Marie and Cliodhna
Norman's Servants
