March/April Newsletter 2017

Sadly, it appears that our summer has come to an end and has been replaced by a damp autumn. With the weather being what it is, now is a good time to ensure that your pets' microchip details are all up to date. Many cats and dogs can become frightened during heavy rain and storms which can lead to them disappearing. When handed into a vet, animals will be checked for a microchip and by having current details attached to their chip number, it makes reuniting you with your pets possible and quick. If you would like to update your details on New Zealand Animal Companion Registry or on our files, give us a call on (09) 4247752 and we will gladly change them for you. 

Easter Holidays

With the Easter holidays falling in April this year, there are a few public holidays where the clinic will be closed. Those days are as follows: Friday 14th, Sunday 16th, and Monday 17th of April for Easter, and Tuesday 25th of April for ANZAC day. If you’re in need of veterinary assistance during these times, please contact the North Shore Afterhours in Glenfield on 094435640.  

What’s New?

  • We have welcomed a new member to our team, Bubbles Otway. Bubbles has come to us from North Shore Afterhours and will be the smiling face that greets you at our reception desk. With years of experience under her belt, she can offer advice and answer any animal health care questions you may have. Welcome to the team Bubbles, we are glad to have you with us!
  • First Aid for Pets is a new app that offers both behavioural and first aid advice to owners. Though it is not a replacement for seeing a vet and seeking veterinary advice, it allows owners a chance to read through accurate first aid advice and have that information on board in the event of an accident occurring. The app can also be set up so that it shows our contact information so you always have it on hand if needed.

We hope you have a lovely Easter break and rest of your April.

All the best,

The team at Whangaparaoa Vet Centre.
