Pet of the Month – Fetch
Fetch is a lovely Golden Retriever who received his name for his love of chasing a ball and ability to sniff them out in any public space. Fetch has been with his family since he was a little puppy 10 years ago. Originally from a breeder in Adelaide, home then became a small house in Artarmon before Fetch became a local with a lot more space to explore. His family at the time consisted of two adults and a child and now he has four children to love and whom all love him back. His favourite thing to do in the morning is to go for an early walk with a visit to Champ and Chief Deli and Cafe on Princes Street. He then spends the rest of the day resting in the driveway awaiting the Pymble Public school children whom he loves to greet. Fetch’s family is hooked on Golden Retrievers as amazing family pets. If you are looking for a Golden Retriever, check out dogzonline.com.au for reputable breeders (and also adult purebreds for rehoming) or Golden Retriever Rescue, www.grr.org.au.
Human or Animal, bad breath is not normal!
- Did you know 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some form of dental disease?
- Animals (even our domesticated pets) are masters at hiding discomfort and pain in an effort to not be vulnerable.
- Most pets will continue eating until dental disease is at an advanced stage.
Twice yearly dental examinations is the best way to notice dental problems early and prevent pain and tooth loss. Call today on 9988 0198 to organise a FREE dental check with one of our qualified and experienced senior veterinary nurses (available Monday to Friday).

Please come and join us for a cupcake party.
Tick Control that works fast and lasts!
We have recently made the switch from Nexgard to Simparica Flea and Tick Control. Simparica is a monthly flea, tick and mite product. We still stock Bravecto. Why Simparica?
- It maintains top level of effectiveness for the full treatment period.
- It kills fleas, ticks (including paralysis ticks) and mites faster than Nexgard.
- It is safe to use in puppies as little as 1.3kg and as young as 8 weeks.
- It can be given either with or without a meal.
- The tablets are smaller and very tasty.
Come in today to get you dog started on the best monthly flea and tick control available!
