Let's Focus On...

...Old Age is Not a Disease

With the lifespan of our companion animals being considerably shorter than our own, we inevitably see them develop from a puppy/kitten, through the juvenile stages, into adulthood and beyond into their senior years and eventually passing over the rainbow bridge. We commonly hear from owners of senior pets that they are slowing down with increasing age. However, we must remember, old age in itself is not a disease and many older animals can continue to lead a happy and healthy life.

Animal Welfare Matters

Check you’re doing it right

On 1 October this year new animal welfare regulations came into effect. Whether you’re a commercial farmer or live on a lifestyle block, own a pet or run a petting zoo, transport livestock or ride horses; if you’re responsible for an animal – these regulations could apply to you. Check out the information here – www.mpi.govt.nz/animalregs These changes build on what was already required and also set some new rules. Regulations make it easier for MPI and the SPCA to take action against animal mistreatment. New penalties such as fines will be issued for certain actions. We will continue to prosecute the worst offenders under the Animal Welfare Act. We’re making life better for animals, and you can help others get it right too. • Check! Are you doing it right? Encourage others to check too - www.mpi.govt.nz/animalregs • Ask! Email us your questions - animalwelfare@mpi.govt.nz • Tell! Call us about an animal welfare issue - 0800 00 83 33

Facial Eczema Spore Counts

Spore counts have dropped this week for Moutoa and Waitarere. Based on the spore counts all areas are at minimal risk for facial eczema, however we will re test sites next week to make sure the levels have dropped to 0. If you do think that you have any affected animals with facial eczema please call us. There are supportive treatment options, including Manderson's mix and zinc cream for animals with clinical signs. We will be doing more spore counts for Moutoa mid next week. Spore counts can be carried out on your property by request - give us a call today.

Safe summer pet


what happensIf a disaster happened today... Pets are an important member of the household for many families. In a disaster they will also be affected. How well your pets cope with a disaster event such as a flood, volcanic eruption or destructive earthquake depends on the actions you take now to plan for them. Whether you decide to stay put in an emergency or evacuate to a safer location, you will need to make plans in advance for your pets. If you must evacuate, take your pets with you if possible. However, if you are going to a public shelter, it is important to understand that animals may not be allowed inside. Plan in advance for shelter alternatives that will work for both you and your pets. Make a back-up emergency plan in case you can't care for your animals yourself. Develop a buddy system with neighbours, friends and relatives to make sure that someone is available to care for or evacuate your pets if you are unable to do so. Be prepared to improvise and use what you have on hand to make it on your own for at least three days, maybe longer.
