Autumn 2017 brings the controlled release of a new strain of Rabbit Calicivirus, the K5 strain of RHDV1 (Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Virus 1). This is on top of the recent outbreak strain of Calicivirus – RHDV2 that has been identified in and around the ACT, in the last couple of years.
Brushing your dog or cats teeth is the gold standard in home oral care for our pets. It is so much more effective than any of the other management tools, which is why dentists recommend we brush rather than just chew bones! But many owners are intimidated by the prospect or just don’t see how it could work with their pet. While it is true that tooth brushing requires the right pet, the right owner and home routine it is actually a lot easier than we often think. Dr Louise Grey recently discovered that tooth brushing was not only easier than expected but that is was really effective. Dr Louise gives us her story below:
We are currently experiencing problems with our supply of Carbimazole tablets (called Neomercazole) from the pharmaceutical companies. We are not sure how long we will have interruptions with supply. Some human pharmacies may still have the medication on the shelf, so we can issue you with a script to attempt to source this.
At Inner South Veterinary Centre not only do we see our fair share of cats and dogs, we also frequently tend to all manner of exotic animals as well – rabbits, rats, guinea pigs, birds, reptiles and more! Needless to say we are experienced when it comes to providing the best possible care for your beloved pet.
