Owner's warning after dog nearly dies after eating rat poison

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

An Auckland dog owner is warning of the dangers rat bait can cause after her beloved pet nearly died after ingesting it twice.

Tracy Leach said her 8-year-old golden retriever Daisy first got sick about four weeks ago on their rural property in Glenbrook, south of Auckland.

She bounced back pretty quickly but Leach started to notice she was vomiting constantly and consuming a lot of water - causing her to take Daisy back to the vet.

Poll: What is the top issue you want the local council to focus on?

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

The local elections are a great opportunity to decide on who we want to represent our communities over the next three years. With elections just around the corner, this is a good time to pinpoint the issues that affect you and are important to you.

Being clear on this is a first step in knowing what you want your local councillors to support or who to vote for. What are the issues you want your next local council to focus on?

DISAPPOINTED!! community pantry trashed

Naylar Neighbourly Lead from Te Atatu South

Hi Neighbours,

We have put up a pantry to help those who may need some help with food from time to time and also give others the opportunity to share with the community.

But someone went and trashed it. Picture below is one of our children maintaining the pantry after they had made a beautiful sign for it.

We are teaching our children responsibility and it saddens them to see that their hard work has been trashed.

If you don't want anything fro the pantry thats OK. But please as a community could we keep an eye out for those who would want to trash a great initiative to help our community.

Thank you Kingdly,
Naylar Uisa
