When New Zealand’s Alert Level 4 came into effect in March 2020, schools around the country faced the challenge of a transitioning from onsite to online learning.

As students adjusted to the shift in their educational environment, many schools were ill-prepared to move to quickly to online learning. Schools such as St Peter’s in Cambridge were readily prepared for a seamless transfer between classroom and digital learning.

With each student ready to use online platforms such as Google Classroom and Hangouts, a streamlined shift was enabled as soon as the lockdown occurred.

Find out why more families are choosing St Peter’s at our Open Day on 12 March.

February is Heart Awareness Month for us humans but did you know your pets can have heart disease too? 🐕‍🦺🐈

They can either be born with congenital abnormalities or develop problems with age. You may notice changes in your pets breathing rate and effort at home, or they may not be as energetic and become more tired when exercising.🩺❤️

The best thing you can do to keep an eye on you pets heart is to have a veterinarian listen to their chest on a yearly basis at their annual vaccination, or if you notice any of these changes at home then give us a call.🩺❤️

If we hear any irregularity in the exam we may advice further tests such as X-rays or an echocardiogram to assess the structure of the heart.🩺❤️

There are medications and modifications we can make if we do find any issues with their heart, which can improve their quality of life and longevity.

Heart checks are a crucial part of our job as animals cannot tell us when they don’t feel well.

❤️🥰So not only look after your heart but your pets as well, remember they love you with all of it!🥰❤️

With the increase in the popularity of rabbits as companion pets here are a few facts that you might not know.🐇💕

🐰Rabbits teeth constantly grow, which is why good quality hay is so important to your rabbit’s dental health, not only is it a good source of fiber but it also helps wear down their teeth.

🐰Rabbits can live for up to 10 years of age.

🐰Have you seen your rabbit “BINKY”? This is when they run about and jump athletically in the air and twist and kick. It is a sign of happiness.🥰

🐰A baby rabbit is known as a kit or kitten, a female is called a doe and a male is called a buck. A group of rabbits is known as a herd.

🩺We recommend an annual vet check for your bunnies, to check teeth, vaccinate against Calicivirus, assess their general health, wellbeing and for any signs of disease.🩺

We have desexed a number of rabbits recently, so if you don’t want a herd of bunnies at your house, give the team a call 07 8493963. We can make an appointment for you or answer any questions you may have about your bunnies health and well being.

🐇💕Rabbits really do make great companions.🐇💕
