Food - the best of traveller experiences

We love travelling with pets... but some people & places don't... like National Parks or some caravan parks!
PLUS... there are other issues apart from behaviour such as vaccinations and more - This section might just have some answers for you!

Sadie - Lost Then Found!
Whether you are travelling with pets or just 'at home' the loss of any much loved K9 (or feline or feathered friend!) is devastating.
But what was amazing is that we were doing an overnight 'free camp' at the very popular Babinda (FNQ) Rotary Park when Kaye spotted some excitement in the car park.
It was obvious 'someone' was VERY happy to see this dog again... but why? 

Age Is Not A Disease!

How's your old dog doing... ok? Got a cough or occasional limping or out of character behaviour? Could it be age related or something else?...

In this 60 second podcast with pictures... Animal Referral Hospital (ARH) Essendon Veterinary Surgeon Dr Simon Kudnig explains why age is actually not a disease 



Poo Eating Dogs!

We often get asked "HEELLP!... how can I stop my young dog eating his poo'?"...

First of all, don't be embarrassed, poo-eating better known as copraphagia is surprisingly common!

Plus dogs such as Labradors seem to be the dog world's equivalent of a vacuum cleaner... they're willing to try to eat just about anything and everything but many other breeds of dog do this too.

Chocolate Is Poisonous For Pets

“Roses are red, violets are blue... Skip the chocolate and roses…buy me catnip or liver instead!”

Pretty well most of us really love the romance associated with Valentines Day…we just know that right around the world, there are Vets and nurses gearing up to spend a less than fun-filled time, cleaning up vomit and poos around that time…

Of course nobody in their right mind would feed a pet chocolate these days right?...

Sleeping With Dogs!

Do you sleep with your pet? Research shows vast numbers of us do and we laugh off the idea that their shifting, shaking, scratching and middle-of-the-night-toileting might have any effect on us.

But we shouldn’t.

A study from Johns Hopkins Medicine suggests that having our sleep interrupted is just as bad for us as not getting enough sleep in the first place.

The team of researchers used a pool of 62 healthy men and women to examine how sleep patterns affected the body.

Ticks are deadly!

A tiny dot half the size of your little finger-nail with 6 teensy legs near its head. To be honest - it's highly unlikely Hollywood would ever consider making a block-buster with the title "Tick Dundee or Tickmania or Teenage Mutant Ninja Ticks!"

Which is a pity because when it comes to killer Aussie predators, the Paralysis Tick is right up there alongside our poisonous snakes and killer spiders.
