LEPTOSPIROSIS ALERT TO ALL DOG-PARENTS IN EASTERN MELBOURNE

Wednesday, 20 November 2019

In the last week Ringwood Vet Hospital has had a confirmed diagnosis of Leptospira interrogans serovar Copenhageni in a dog living local to the Maroondah area. Although he and his family fought hard, sadly the dog was extremely unwell due to both liver and kidney failure and unable to be saved.

We do not know of other confirmed cases in Eastern Melbourne, however, it is possible that the disease is being seen but not confirmed.


Leptospirosis can cause severe illness in people, can be lethal in dogs and cats and infect many different mammals.
  Because of the severity of disease this bacteria causes, as well as its ability to spread between people and animals, all cases must be reported to the Department of Agriculture immediately.

This bacteria is more commonly seen in the humid conditions of Northern Queensland, and quite rarely seen in the southern states. However, in the past few months, there has been a spike of cases confirmed in central Sydney and now the Bayswater and Maroondah area.

A brief infographic has been created to help you reduce the risk of exposure to your beloved pet - view it here.  Our thanks to Ringwood Vet for producing this document and sharing this information.


Judges Renewals

Tuesday, 19 November 2019

We wish to advise all our judges that their 2020 renewals will not be mailed out by post this year due to the introduction of a new online system.

The new service will be convenient, secure and will offer faster and more predictable turnaround times.  The initiative is part a larger strategic plan to modernise systems and controls which will bring further benefits to Dogs Victoria members moving forward.

Judges renewals should land in members’ inboxes in the coming weeks.
We thank you for your continued support of Dogs Victoria.

Earthworks at KCC Park

Wednesday, 30 October 2019

A reminder to our members that earthworks are now underway at the rear of KCC Park near the Dam. These works may continue until the end of the year.

As the ground is displaced, snakes that may be in hibernation could be disturbed.  We urge members to be cautious around this area at all times.

If you see a snake, don't panic. Back away to a safe distance and allow the snake to move away. Snakes often want to escape when disturbed.  Signage has been erected as a reminder.

Keep safe, watch where you are putting your feet, avoid tall grasses and most importantly keep your dog on a leash to avoid them sticking their snouts where they don't belong.

If you suspect your dog has been bitten by a snake you should immobilise them and try to keep him/her as quiet as possible. It is vital that you take your pet to a veterinarian as quickly as possible. The sooner your dog is treated, the better their chances of survival.

The vet nearest clinic to KCC Park is Thompson Road Small Animal Clinic, 940 Thompson Road, Cranbourne - 1300 843 838 – located just behind the BP station.  Further information can be found on our website on the Emergency Information page here
