Chocolate is toxic to dogs and care should be taken so they don’t accidentally ingest it.

The darker the chocolate and the larger the quantity eaten, the higher the risk of toxicity, especially with lower body weight dogs.

Mild signs of toxicity include vomiting and diarrhoea; while severe toxicity can have effects on the heart and result in tremors and seizures.

Chocolate should also be kept away from cats and small animals like rabbits and guinea pigs. If you are doing an Easter Egg Hunt, make sure all chocolate eggs are found, otherwise they will be sniffed out by your precious pets thinking they are a harmless treat!

❤️Later on in the week, vet Simon will discuss the dangers of chocolate for your pets in our next Vet Talk video.❤️

🩺Should your pet accidentally consume any amount of chocolate, please contact us straight away on 07 8492963 if we are closed contact Waikato After Hours on 07 8395656 for advice and treatment.🩺

The table below is a guideline only, please contact us if your pooch has eaten any amount of chocolate.

❤️Keep your fur kids safe this Easter❤️

Welcome to 'Weight Week' which we are running in conjunction with Royal Canin pet nutrition.🐈‍⬛🐕

We are concentrating this week on overweight pets and what problems can arise. Keeping your pet at a healthy weight is one of the most overlooked keys to a happy, healthy life. It can also be one of the most difficult tasks to undertake without knowing the vital factors that contribute to your pet’s weight.

We have some great Vet Talk video’s from Vet Simon on our Facebook Page. Information on our Weight Clinic run by Vet Nurse Angel and an awesome promo from Royal Canin.
❤️So let’s get started!❤️

🐈‍⬛Body Score Charts🐩

Have a look at the charts in the pictures to see if any of your fur family members are overweight. You might be surprised. The charts shown are for a cat and a medium dog. Even if you have a small or a large dog, the medium dog chart will give you the information you require.❤️

Meet Pippa, she came in to us for a dental, not because she required one but as a preventative measure.❤️

X-ray’s were taken to ensure nothing was going on underneath the surface, revealing everything was healthy. Her teeth were then scaled and polished and as you can see it made quite a difference.

Not all cats and dogs are so lucky, it’s estimated that without proper dental care 80% of dogs will show signs of oral disease by the age of three.🐕🐈‍⬛

❤️Providing a good diet - a dry dental food is best as it helps scrape the plaque off the teeth when eaten.
❤️Brushing your pets teeth - check out the oral hygiene kits we have in the clinic, with poultry flavoured toothpaste!
❤️Dental Chews - like Veggiedent can help to control tartar and freshen breath.

Get your pets teeth checked at their next visit or call our reception team to book in for an oral health check up on 07 8492963.Remember prevention is better than cure.🙂

Blind Low Vision New Zealand do an amazing job providing emotional and practical support to New Zealanders with low vision and sight loss. One of the ways they do this is with guide dogs. 🥰

It takes aproximately 18 to 20 months to train a dog. From 9 weeks of age they are placed with puppy raisers who provide them with new experiences every day, so they get used to the world, new people, situations and experiences.🐕‍🦺

From 12 months of age they go for intensive training and testing and once they have completed and passed everything required of them they are ready for placement.💕

For those of you that don’t know, here at Hamilton Small Animal Veterinary Centre we do the health checks and vaccinations for the puppies and dogs in our area for the organisation. These dogs do a wonderul service and it is a pleasure that we can play a small part in their lives.

This is Callum, another one of their amazing dogs who came into the clinic for a health check and vaccinations last week.🐾💕

We are proud to support Blind Low Vision NZ in every way we can.❤️

February is Heart Awareness Month for us humans but did you know your pets can have heart disease too? 🐕‍🦺🐈

They can either be born with congenital abnormalities or develop problems with age. You may notice changes in your pets breathing rate and effort at home, or they may not be as energetic and become more tired when exercising.🩺❤️

The best thing you can do to keep an eye on you pets heart is to have a veterinarian listen to their chest on a yearly basis at their annual vaccination, or if you notice any of these changes at home then give us a call.🩺❤️

If we hear any irregularity in the exam we may advice further tests such as X-rays or an echocardiogram to assess the structure of the heart.🩺❤️

There are medications and modifications we can make if we do find any issues with their heart, which can improve their quality of life and longevity.

Heart checks are a crucial part of our job as animals cannot tell us when they don’t feel well.

❤️🥰So not only look after your heart but your pets as well, remember they love you with all of it!🥰❤️

With the increase in the popularity of rabbits as companion pets here are a few facts that you might not know.🐇💕

🐰Rabbits teeth constantly grow, which is why good quality hay is so important to your rabbit’s dental health, not only is it a good source of fiber but it also helps wear down their teeth.

🐰Rabbits can live for up to 10 years of age.

🐰Have you seen your rabbit “BINKY”? This is when they run about and jump athletically in the air and twist and kick. It is a sign of happiness.🥰

🐰A baby rabbit is known as a kit or kitten, a female is called a doe and a male is called a buck. A group of rabbits is known as a herd.

🩺We recommend an annual vet check for your bunnies, to check teeth, vaccinate against Calicivirus, assess their general health, wellbeing and for any signs of disease.🩺

We have desexed a number of rabbits recently, so if you don’t want a herd of bunnies at your house, give the team a call 07 8493963. We can make an appointment for you or answer any questions you may have about your bunnies health and well being.

🐇💕Rabbits really do make great companions.🐇💕
