Congratulations on Graduation!

 

We congratulate Dr Alex and Jeremy Keough on their graduation from Lincoln Institute’s ‘Lead to Succeed’ course.

The principles and education learned from Lincoln Institute help guide the Hospital’s business model. It has been with the Keough’s as they have grown the clinic into the successful business it is today. Never losing sight of the main reason for being, to provide high quality care to the animals of Wagga and its surrounding areas.

1080 Baits 

We have had several cases of 1080 poisoning recently. 1080 is used on our local farms to rid them mainly of foxes which take lambs and other newborn animals. It is a relatively safe poison for our  native animals but highly toxic for dogs, foxes and cats. It disrupts the central nervous system causing disorientation, unconsciousness and death. There is no antidote and death occurs quickly. It is vital to get your pet to a vet immediately if you suspect 1080 poisoning. The only treatment is to place animals in induced comas while their body metabolises the toxin. Even this does not guarantee survival.
