We have all seen vision of our Southern neighbours suffering from extreme bush fires; images of people and entire communities losing almost everything, not to mention the thousands of domestic, livestock and native animals that have been killed, injured and lost their homes and habitat.
We believe the most useful way to support and care from this distance is to donate money to your favourite, reputable charity groups represented on the ground in the fire zones, be they supporting our fellow humans, farmers or the wildlife.
These charity groups can then source exactly what they require - and also choose to spend the money locally in their regions thus supporting the businesses and vets in specific needed locations.

February is Desexing Month!
* Responsible pet ownership includes the desexing of pets.
* Most unwanted healthy puppies and kittens in Queensland end up being euthanised.
* Puppies and Kittens can routinely be desexed from 5 months of age depending on the breed and size of the animal.
* It is never too late to desex an adult cat or dog. In fact, the risk of certain diseases increases with age, so desexing is even more important for older dogs.
* Waiting until after it has had its first heat or litter is not recognised as a benefit to the animal.
* If you do not intend breeding from your pet, then the best thing you can do for your pet and for the community is to get it desexed at an early age.
To encourage responsible pet ownership Tropical Vet Services is offering a 10% discount on standard dogs and cats desexed this month.
