The kids at C&K Forestview Community Kindergarten were so excited to have a visit from Dr. Angie recently, everyone being on their best behaviour sitting attentively and eager to learn! As most families would have a pet of some sort, Dr. Angie took the time to educate and chat with the little ones about animal care and what it’s like to work in the veterinary field. The highlight of Dr. Angie’s visit for the kids was definitely a friendly young Carpet Python!

It is with great sadness that we say farewell to one of our team.
Dr. Lachy has been with us since 2018 and has fitted in so well and been such an integral part of our (your!) team, that it really is like saying goodbye to a family member. Since joining us Lachy has built up a large client base of people and pets who love to see him, and with good reason. Dr. Lachy is by all accounts an excellent vet, a highly skilled surgeon, and has had some truly memorable saves on very complex cases. Above all Dr. Lachy is a kind and caring person who enriches the lives of those around him (whether they be on four legs or two!).
We will miss you Lach, and we all wish you the very best in the next chapter of your life.
Zoe joined the team at the start of 2021 as our resident animal groomer. With seven years of grooming experience and working with animals, her passion for her work has only grown with time. Her skills range anywhere from breed specific grooms and comfort clips to creative grooming. Zoe is excited to be a part of the team and even more thrilled to meet your pets. In particular, Zoe loves working with her clients to create a trusting and comfortable grooming environment. She lives over North with 2 dogs of her own, Lolli the Cavalier and Winnie the Whippet, as well as 2 budgies, Rick and Morty.
If you would like to have your pet pampered and groomed, give us a call and we can book them in with Zoe.
Dr. Ro, Dr. Lachy and all the staff at North Bundaberg Vet Surgery would like to take the opportunity to welcome everyone into the New Year! We hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year period. Thank you to all of you who wished us well, we are all back on deck and looking forward to the coming year!

North Bundaberg Vet Surgery
With the silly season just about upon us, we wanted to remind our clients of the importance of having their pet’s vaccinations up to date.
It is often at this time of the year that we are travelling, and sometimes with very short notice.
If you are in the position of needing to board your pet in a kennel, it is requirement that their vaccinations are up to date. If you take your pets with you, there is always a chance they can contract one of the diseases that vaccination protects against if they are unprotected.
Vaccination is one of the most powerful tools we have when it comes to keeping our pets healthy. They are also very are safe and have minimal (if any) side effects. We recommend you vaccinate your pets because, quite simply, they work.
It is a kennel requirement that your dog be vaccinated with a C5 vaccination. It is the minimum requirement for most boarding kennels. We strongly recommend a C5 vaccination for all dogs due to the frequency that we see dogs with parvovirus and canine cough in this area. A C5 vaccination will cover your dog against all of the following diseases:
- Adenovirus (Hepatitis)
- Bordetella Bronchiseptica
We recommend an F4 vaccination be given for cats. It protects against the major diseases we see in cats and they include:
- Feline rhinotracheitis virus
- Panlecopenia virus
- Feline calicivurus
