Ask the Animal Doctors - Pet and Vet Blog is up and running!
27 October, 2014
Does you pet do any weird and/or wonderful things? Do you ever wonder if they are perhaps a bit 'quirky', or 'odd', or just plain weird? If you have questions that you would like to ask, but don't - or ever just wonder if what they are doing is indeed normal, which really... Haven't we all? - we have heard your (anonymous) cries! 

Introducing: Ask the Animal Doctors - with Dr Kirsty & Dr Tegan - The Toowong Family Vet Blog!

 
We'll be posting a newbie blog twice weekly for the first few months, covering some of the most commonly asked questions we come across in the daily happenings here at the clinic. Feel free to email us with any questions that you would like answered in the blog, or maybe there's a specific topic that you find interesting and would like a more reliable source than plain ol' Dr Google.
Perhaps you have a breed of pet that is prone to particular issues - think Pugs/Boston Terriers/French Bulldogs and Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome; or Burmese and Diabetes; Schnauzers and Pancreatitis; or Boxers and Cardiomyopathy - and want to best be informed to best look after your pet. Any and all questions are welcomed with open arms - and we'd LOVE to hear from you!

So check it out, have a read through the very first 'Ask the Animal Doctors' Blog - and let us know what you think! 

Happy Monday!
Dr Kirsty, Dr Tegan, Nurse Tahlia, Nurse Marie, Nurse Cliodhna, Norman and Mithy

(Master Gabriel is our male model for the blog. Isn't he just beyond handsome?)
HAPPY VET NURSES DAY!
10 October, 2014
Today is Vet Nurse Day - and we want to wish a very special day to our fantastic nurses Tahlia, Marie and Cliodhna.
 
Any time you've been into the clinic, you would have seen one of these smiling faces greeting you in reception.
 
If you've had a pet in for a surgery, these girls are the ones closely monitoring your pet, keeping them safe and well, making sure that Dr Kirsty or Dr Tegan can work their surgical magic.
If your pet has been unwell, feeling down and with a wagless tail, or perhaps all out of purrs, these are the people that give them a kiss, a cuddle and work with the vets to ensure they have a speedy recovery and can come home to you as soon as possible.
If your pet has needed a check up, a vaccination, or just a social visit, these are the hands that give them treats, the arms that offer a comforting hug when we need to look them over, or give them a needle, the friendly faces to give a kiss and have a chat.
 
We love our team here so very much, it's like a home away from our homes. A successful team beats with one heart, and like a family, we are not a team because we work together, we are a team because we respect, trust and care for each other. And this is the team that cares for you and your pets. What a lucky bunch we ALL are.
Happy Vet Nurse Day to our fantastic girls, and all of the other Vet Nurses out there who do their best and give their all to look after, care for and help make better, all of the pets out there. What a great day it is!
