Does your pet take their flea tablet this well?? We have flea and tick options for even the fussiest pooches! Or if they don’t like those, there are spot-on options that last for 6 months!
?? GUESS THE PROCEDURE ?? Can you guess what procedure Winnie is having in the photo?
Whoever gets the the right answer will get a $50 voucher to help stop their dog from needing the same operation!! We'll pick the most correct answer to win the prize on Friday afternoon.
Bosco thought that he would go in for the kiss at his dental check this morning!
Lucky his teeth are nice and clean so Dr Zach didn’t mind (too much). If your pet’s kisses smell, then that can be a major sign of dental disease - and they should be examined.
At @goulburnvet a dental check is free! Just give us a call and we can get you booked in to discuss keeping a healthy mouth in your best friend.
Sometimes having somebody else get on the scales can make them less scary.
Check out our story (click on our profile picture) to watch this girl get on the scales for the first time EVER with her new best friend and owner.

Sometimes our littlest patients are the bravest!
Amy had a big surgery to remove a tumour that had been causing her pain. She is much happier now that it is gone, and loves visiting the clinic for her check-ups and treats!
What do you do when your Grandmother's dog needs surgery?
Get them to help of course!
Anzac the Schnauzer needed to get his big operation on Wednesday, and his owner (Dr Zach's Grandmother) wasn't going to miss out on the action.
Anzac is making a great recovery from surgery, but we think he might develop some trust issues if he sees this photo...
Nelle's Nose Nip'n'Tuck .
Some of our flat-faced pets can have trouble breathing - one of the things we can do to help this is to open up their airways.
Dogs such as pugs, bulldogs, and some cats such as persians can have a procedure to help them breathe better by opening their nostrils. We often do this at the same time as a desexing operation, and that's what happened with Nelle last week.
Sometimes there is more airway work to do, and if you have a pet with a flat face, our team can discuss all the options at their health checks.

It should be illegal to be this cute.
3 little trouble makers in for their first vaccinations and health checks with Dr Zach this morning.
This one goes out to all those people who think ONE puppy is a handful... We loved seeing this litter of EIGHT bulldogs for their first puppy vaccinations and health checks!
Just another happy puppy to brighten your day.
Chiko got the deluxe option for his treat - Pigs ear, cream cheese AND liver treats!
Does it get any better for your first trip to the vet?
DOGS AT COURT
Finn and his owner Vanessa were at Goulburn Courthouse this morning - they weren’t in trouble though!
Finn is a therapy dog and is a part of @guidedogsnswact Canine Court Companion program which has just rolled out in Goulburn. Finn’s job is to help relax anxious people at court - and he does a great job at it :) The program needs more people and more dogs though! If you are interested in volunteering, Guide Dogs has lovely Labrador dogs to foster. These dogs will live with you, and love you, the only condition is that you are able to share their calming presence with people at Goulburn Courthouse 2 mornings per week for 90 minutes.
For more information, contact the clinic, or email the coordinator Naomi at GDCvolunteer@guidedogs.com.au
Orange bandage for an orange kitten!
Little Jack got desexed with us earlier this week - here he is showing off his IV catheter. An IV lets us control the amount of medicine we give our patients and give them fluids to support them through surgery. This means our patients have a FASTER wake up and RECOVERY.
It also means we have access to give life-saving emergency drugs if we need to, which makes every anesthetic SAFER.
We are so happy that Kenny is going home today feeling better!
Kenny came to see us because he couldn’t walk, but after some blood tests, x-rays, and treatment he is making a great recovery.
Belly Rubs Anybody?
Not even getting desexed stopped Norah from wanting her belly scratched.
With her pain relief and completely under-the-skin sutures, nothing can stop her while she recovers, and her owner can bring her back for free rechecks to make sure she's healing well.
GLOWUP challenge 2019.
This is Dr Zach's dog Louis always finding the best place to lie down.
