❤️🦮 Meet “Callum” from Blind Low Vision NZ 🦮❤️

Michelle from Hamilton Small Animal Veterinary Centre

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.❤️
