DOG RESCUE DUNEDIN -- NOW A CHARITABLE TRUST!
Dunedin Dog Rescue officially began on 9th Dec, 2011 by Dr Jo Pollard.
Dogs picked up by Animal Control only have seven days in which to be
claimed. Unclaimed dogs are available to the public for $100 but only a
minority of dogs find homes this way.
The rest are "put down". For years the Otago SPCA took in many of these
dogs but it has had a change of policy.
Dunedin Dog Rescue has been set up to rescue these condemned
dogs by providing veterinary care, food and home-based foster care,
and advertising them until they find their "forever homes". Each time
resources allow and a fosterer is available, another condemned pound
dog is rescued.
DONATE Donations are used for used for registration and microchipping,
standard vet procedures (health check, vaccination, desexing), food,
training, transporting and advertising.
Dog Rescue Dunedin's activities are ONLY funded by donations from the
public. Please support us. Any donation is very much appreciated and will
help save another dog.
You can make a Bank Deposit directly into our account
or set up an automatic payment via your bank- $2 a week would be very
helpful! - account details available from our website

HALO DOG ZONE -- QUEENSTOWN
Just like people, animals can benefit from alternative, drug-free therapies
to support rehabilitation of injuries and surgical procedures.
Halo Dog Zone Canine Rehabilitation Specialist Diana Staudt is a member
of the Small Animal and Equine Naturopathic Association Inc. of Australia.
The qualified canine massage therapist uses massage to support muscles
for rehabilitation and relaxation, craniosacral therapy to release stress
and traumas and, like Dr Dolittle, can communicate with animals.
With her wide range of therapies, Diana can discuss treatments with your
vet to ensure continuity of care and offers only the best rehabilitation
plan to suit your dog.
Diana is also well known for her healthy and appetizing home-made dog
treats. Available in many flavours and combinations, they are 'pawfect' to
spoil your dog in a healthy way.

IN YOUR PET
Just like people our pets need to have
good oral care to keep the teeth and gums healthy throughout their life.
Often dental disease in our pets is not noticed until it is very advanced.
Dental disease affects many cats and dogs causing pain, bad breath, a
build up of yellow tartar, inflamed gums (gingivitis), bleeding gums, tooth
loss, loss of appetite, grumpy behaviour and dribbling. If left untreated,
the bacteria and toxins produced by dental disease can lead to kidney,
liver and heart disease.
Factors that contribute to dental disease include poor diet, old age, micro-
organisms, and poor oral hygiene. Some breeds are more susceptible to
dental disease such as small breed dogs and Abyssinian cats.
Soft food such as dog roll and some jelly-meats are sticky and lead to a
rapid plaque build upon your pet's teeth. These foods also do not need to
be thoroughly chewed by you pet so they don't work the teeth as desired.
High quality dental diets and chews are available at 'Pets n Vets' which
are designed to treat and prevent dental disease. These dental diets
act in two ways. They are often a larger than normal biscuit which act
mechanically to break down the tartar on the outside of the tooth. Some
also are composed chemically to fight tartar and prevent further buildup.
