An update on the recent Canine Parvo Virus Strain: 

17 May 2017 Posted by Boyne Tannum in Uncategorized

A new canine parvovirus strain has been detected in Australia. But don’t panic!

Researchers in Adelaide have recently reported the detection of a new type of canine parvovirus. Although this virus is new to Australia, it has been present in many overseas countries since 2000, and is very closely related to parvoviruses that have been present in Australia for the past 40 years.

Experience from other countries that have this particular virus, as well as specific scientific studies, have shown that the current vaccines we use are effective in providing protection against this new type. Similarly, although concerns have been raised about the effectiveness of tests used to detect infection, studies have shown these too are effective for the new type.

So what do you need to do? If your dog is up-to-date with its vaccinations – nothing! Take your dog for a walk and enjoy Autumn!

However if your dog is unvaccinated, now is the time to schedule an appointment, as canine parvovirus, the old types and the new, can cause serious, and in many cases, fatal disease.

Charlie’s Story

04 Dec 2014 Posted by Boyne Tannum in Animal Rescue

Charlie_before&afterC Charlie’s story is a reminder to everyone that the decision to get a pet is a lifetime one, things may change over time but those pets rely on you to be with them through thick or thin. This is a true story of a pet who was loved but not unconditionally.

It began almost 8 years ago when a family knew they wanted to get another dog, one to fill the void of their previous dog who sadly passed away at a ripe old age and gave them so much joy and happiness. (more…)
