Congratulations to Jane Hutson- our 2014/15 “Like us on Facebook” winner. Jane was chosen randomly from our large pool of Facebook followers to win $2000 worth of pet care for her and her family/friends. Do not despair though as we run the competition every year so you may be our lucky winner this year. Jane was ecstatic and this was her comment on facebook when she found out…..”Misty the cat says thank-you so much! As do her owners Jane and Holly! As we only bought our cat 2 weeks ago this is perfect timing and the perfect birthday present for her poor student owner Holly, who will be 20 on Wednesday. Thanks again Wilston Vet, Leionie and Tabitha. Facebook Jan 2015

History: Lucy is a much loved patient here at Wilston Vet. She presented to the clinic to see Dr Kate as her appetite had recently decreased and she seemed to be losing weight. A complete blood profile had been performed earlier in the year and happily her results had been normal, ruling out many of the causes for weight loss and reduced appetite in older felines.
“Like Us” on Facebook to win a years free vet care. At the end of each year, one of our facebook “likers” will be randomly chosen to receive a year’s free vet care from Wilston Vet to the value of $2000. Vet Care includes all veterinary services i.e. vaccination, consultation for illness, heartworm injection, worm flea and tick prevention, medication, x-ray,blood tests, surgery, hydrobathing and nail clips. Basically any veterinary service we can provide at our clinic.

Here are some happy customers enjoying the cupcakes from our RSPCA Cupcake Day last week. It was a huge success and we raised over $750 for the RSPCA thanks to all of our wonderful clients who came in and participated. Our “Puppy Cakes” were a huge hit.

You are THE ONE for me and I will eternally love you. You bought continuous and unconditional LOVE into my life and always gave everything to me. You bought PURPOSE to my life. You created WOOFYS and so many other dogs’ and their parents’ lives were improved and enriched because of you. You are a true SHAMAN. I promise you will live on and we will help others with canine cancers.

I was so sad to loose my beautiful furry friend Gumnut, more often known as The Nut or Little Nutty a couple of days ago to kidney failure. I remember the day she arrived as a tiny kitten, full of personality and trouble from the start.
For nearly 17 years, Verb has been a loyal companion. She was hand-picked as a kitten from a small farm in Romeo, Michigan (USA) 16 ½ years ago.
“to us she was the best dog in the world…. we will miss her forever.”
