  • Dr David Barthomomuez is brilliant. Yes I am totally biased but it is based on my experience over the last 6 wks with my mare Rivver. Treatment is still on going and I get the pleasure of picking David's brain for lots of horsey info when he does his weekly visit!

Keep up the great work team Vevs! - Cindi from Tamborine Village

Holidays and Traveling with Dogs


Dollarphotoclub 47965441smlOh to have a holiday! Most of us go on a holiday no more than once a year, and one of our greatest concerns is making sure our animals will be in safe hands while we're away. Next time you're planning a holiday why not take your dog along as well? It'll mean you won't have to worry about their welfare while you're away, and you'll have the added bonus of your best mate by your side!


Things to prepare before booking :
• Will your dog be mentally-fit for travel? Some may prefer to stay home rather than travel to an unfamiliar setting. Only you can gauge their possible reaction.
• Vaccines, worming & tick/flea prevention up to date. Microchipping is also very important
• If travelling internationally, research on veterinary/quarantine requirements, as well as restricted breeds in that country
• Research your accommodation and activities. Most State/National Parks and beaches may not permit dogs, so check this out.
• You probably should research the number of a local vet at your destination and put it somewhere handy.
• Some may like to research a pet sitter to come and mind their dog at their accommodation so they can go out and do things their pet cannot join them in
Consider packing the following:
• Copies of your dog's medical records
• Take along a basic first aid kit for dogs, which may include tweezers, Vaseline to soothe paws if hiking, sun protection (especially for fair-skinned canines), gauze/bandage, tape if muzzle required (dogs can bite viciously if in pain and scared), antiseptic solution
• If you are planning on hiking or walking on bitumen roads, your dog may appreciate wearing a set of leather/canvas booties to protect their feet from hot/hard/abrasive surfaces
• Familiar items such as toys, treats etc.
• Photos of your pet in case they get lost. It may also be a good idea to have a photo of your family with the dog, as it may assist in proving your ownership.
• Good-quality leach and collar. Ensure you have registration tag attached. Also have a name tag with emergency contacts
• Wet wipes for cleaning any messes in the car
• Poop bags
• Towels
• Carpet cleaner or disinfectant
• Lint/hair remover
• Working torch, in case your dog gets free at night
• If you are dubious on drinking the water at your destination you should possibly be concerned about your pet, and have them adopt similar safety measures such as drinking water from home or bottled water
• Take your dog's usual food, and pack bowls, scissors & can openers

All dogs inside vehicles must be restrained by law, for their safety and yours. Some owners choose to restrain with a collar and lead. A good-quality travel harness is the safest option because it evenly distributes pressure across the chest cavity in an accident, rather than concentrating force on the neck. You may also choose to restrain your dog in a crate. If choosing a crate ensure your dog is familiarised with being inside before the big day. The added bonus of a crate means you have a safe and secure place they can sleep in your lodging.
