- Mouse plague
28th March 2021
The mouse plague is not just hurting farmers – pets are in danger too. Vets across the Central West are seeing many pets poisoned by ratbait. Dogs sometimes eat bait while cats might play with dying mice, so please keep pets away from bait. If you can get a poisoned pet to us quickly, your pet can be made to vomit which reduces toxin absorption. However, blood tests, transfusions or an antidote might be needed and bait can be fatal. Ratbait interferes with blood clotting so poisoned pets might show signs of bleeding in nosebleeds or in urine. Internal bleeding can cause coughing, lethargy or collapse.If you think your pet has been in contact with bait or with poisoned mice, contact us for advice straight away.
- New arrangements for emergencies – one weekend a month
21st January 2021
Mulberry Lane Vet Hospital and Bathurst Central Animal Hospital have come together to help each other out with support for weekend emergencies. This new arrangement will be in place one weekend a month – details as follows. Our surgery hours on Saturday mornings stay the same – 8.30 til 12. Most weekends, emergency support for the rest of the weekend will be provided by the Mulberry Lane team, as usual. Just phone our “emergencies only” number to get help. But on one weekend a month, if your pet needs emergency help, it will be provided by Bathurst Central Animal Hospital. Phone our usual “emergencies only ” number and your call will be automatically routed to the OnCall vet in Bathurst, who will provide care for your pet.
Regular clients will have the Mulberry Lane “emergency only” number in their new client folder or on a fridge magnet. If you can’t find it, please call reception during usual Hospital hours 8am til 6pm so our friendly team can give it to you.
