Caped canine crusaders were out in force today, helping save the lives of Victorian pets. The superhero dogs helped launch Lort Smith’s new Pet Protector program alongside the program’s official Ambassador (and self-confessed crazy cat lady) Chrissie Swan.
Recent heavy rains have resulted in a scourge of mosquitos throughout Victoria, and with the infestation expected to last all summer, the consequences are potentially fatal for our pet rabbits. Head of Exotics and Wildlife Medicine at Lort Smith Animal Hospital, Dr Tristan Rich, has urged owners to look out for symptoms associated with these diseases and seek treatment immediately.
We’re thrilled to announce that thanks to some generous donors and GE, the Hospital has just acquired a state-of-the-art CT scanner! A CT is a type of x-ray that takes 3D pictures and can provide more accurate diagnostic information and better quality information to help our vets plan surgeries.
We’re celebrating our 80th year and we’d love to hear your stories about how Lort Smith has made a difference in your pet’s life.
