Valentine? Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve But Hide The Chocolate In The Fridge!

Valentine? Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve But Hide The Chocolate In The Fridge!

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

Okay – here at VETtalk TV, we really love romance and 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…

Of course nobody in their right mind would feed a pet chocolate these days, unless they’re the modern day equivalent of Tom Hanks in ‘Castaway’ (i.e. no access to any information whatsoever) because everyone knows chocolate contains Theobromine which is poisonous for pets… and the darker the chocolate the more dangerous.

Rainy Day Soggy Doggy Solutions!

It's raining cats and dogs! Well, not really but across South-Eastern Australia right now it almost feels like the annual wet season. 

And that can mean 'soggy doggies'.

You see, most dogs these days are 'inside dogs' but they’re trained to go outside to do their 'business'.

But what happens when it’s raining?

Love Is In The Air - Hoo Hoo Hoo!

Love Is In The Air - Hoo Hoo Hoo!

It's not spring.. yet... but the Eastern Grass Owl can,t wait as they begin their search for a mate before heading off to nest and settle down with their new family.

The ground-nesting owls are listed as ‘vulnerable’ on the NSW Threatened Species list by the independent Scientific Committee. 

Jill Smith, Conservation Officer at the Office of Environment and Heritage, said the ghostly night birds mainly inhabit open tussock grasslands, grassy heathland and agricultural crops such as sugar cane in the coastal plains of the NSW north coast with occasional records on the north-western slopes and south to Sydney and vagrant records farther south.

Accidental Poisoning... Minutes From Death!

Accidental Poisoning... Minutes From Death!

Have you ever stored a poison in a recycled water bottle? You might never do so again, after you read this – I know we won’t.

Good friend and life-long ‘ferret rescuer’ Sue O’Keefe was minutes away from becoming a widow yesterday… the culprit? A plastic water bottle…more precisely the substance in it.

Apparently Sue’s husband Mick was feeling a bit thirsty after feeding breakfast to the couple’s pack of rescue ferrets and grabbed what he thought was his re-purposed Gatorade bottle and took a big swig from it.

No Sun? You Can Still Have Doggy Fun... Here's How...

No Sun? You Can Still Have Doggy Fun... Here's How...

When the temperature drops… does your enthusiasm for outdoor doggy walks drop too?

I have to confess – mine does – but when I get the ‘doe-eyes’ from little Ms Troublemaker that it’s ‘that time of the day’, well, what’s a little -10 degrees icy wind chill factor compared to a happy dog? (ok – so maybe that’s a slight temperature exaggeration). 

But depending on your location, the fair-dinkum outside weather conditions and your breed of pet, there are some fun indoor alternatives to walkies which will get you over the winter hump without fear of frost-bite.

Leash 'Freak Out' Aged 3... Why?

It's not only puppies that have problems learning to walk nicely on a lead. Here's a quick recap of a problem we were asked to provide some guidance on.

Molly the Moodle who used to be so good walking on lead - suddenly will walk a little way and then won’t budge!
