It's Easter time - time for chocolate!
It's Easter time - time for some eggs - but not for dogs and cats. It only takes a small amount to cause major problems , especially the dark varieties. Chocolate is toxic because it contains theobromine. Theobromine is similar to caffeine and is used medicinally as a diuretic, heart stimulant, blood vessel dilator, and a smooth muscle relaxant. Theobromine can be poisonous and result in severe clinical signs, especially if untreated. Please call the hospital 9602 6015, or the after hours emergency centre nearest you.
March, 2016 - The veterinarian roster will be online soon. The roster will be in pdf form, so you may need a program that can open a pdf file (such as Adobe Reader).
