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.🐇💕

Joel Maxwell's article riles me  Do Māori need a specific plan for vaccination roll-out? i for one take issue with his comments as follows
"We all knew, before communal life collapsed into alert levels, and lockdowns, and a constant background murmur of international bad news, that there were indigenous health problems in Aotearoa.To be fair, even those of us who are Māori find it difficult to really grasp the weight of our statistics.

In composite, as a Māori person, I’m going to die seven years earlier (and it's two-and-a-half times more likely to happen from preventable diseases); I’ve got a 20 per cent higher chance of getting cancer, I’m more than three times likely to die from chronic lung disease, more than twice as likely to be diagnosed as bipolar, twice as likely to get diabetes. I can tell you, I am very keen to get my Covid-19 vaccination Initially, Minister for Covid-19 Response Chris Hipkins told media, when questioned about a specific plan for Māori, that the vaccine roll-out would be based on risk.

"And Māori are disproportionately represented in those [at risk] groups, who will receive the vaccine early.” For decades, we knew about health disparities for Māori – more of us dying, getting sick, injured, and not getting the necessary treatment. Somehow, the nation still hasn’t closed the gap.So I remain wary. I hope our specific plan for Māori is specific enough, and Māori enough.

i am a 69 year old pakeha having lost 3 brothers to cot death, heart attack, cancer  i may well have endure chronic lung disease  i stopped cold turkey on eve of my 50 birthday a smoking habit of fifty a day, having lost two brother in with in the preceding seven months ,I'm diagnosed as bipolar, have type 2 diabetes and have a stent in my chest after suffering a heart attack and i gave up drinking to boot, the average age at death in my family is  62 

The comment that concerns me most is that "Somehow, the nation still hasn’t closed the gap" its clear the indigenous people are drowning in thier own statistics .my answer it is long overdue that you teach your self to swim   

If the roll out is based on risk where on the list do i sit i believe it may well be 5,000,001 where is my prioritisation framework not asking for special treatment my health is in part entirely due to the choice,s i made which i take full accountability for  i was  just wondering
