The Ark Animal Hospital shared Warmun Community Inc.'s photo.

Two of our staff members have been out to communities around Halls Creek and desexed over 80 dogs in one week. Desexing is very important to control unwanted or aggressive dogs.

Thanks Warmun mob for getting your dogs fixed today. The Vet even had time to take out Suka's skin cancer. Thank you Vets and Rangers !!

Kate PowellIs it ok to feed cats fresh, uncooked fish? My partner gave my cats fish once and now they don't eat their wet food. We now give them biscuits and a little bit of fresh fish every night. I just want to know if it's safe. They both have beautiful shiney coats from eating it!11 hours ago
Avalon Rose HallI've just seen that my girl has ripped her nail back. What should I do please?3 days ago
Mary SmithMy cat is nearly 3 years old and she refuses to drink water. in fact I have never seen her drink water. I leave it around the house and I have tried flavoring the water but no luck. She eats raw pet mince daily, and I have tried her on a diet of dry biccies hoping to encourage drinking but still no luck. Can you suggest another way of getting water into her? Is this a common problem and should I be worried?5 days ago

Cait YoungI have two rescue cats that I adore and usually are prefect they have a cat scratcher each own toys food bowls etc.. However since moving into my new apartment my big boy is beating my girl a fair bit (rough play) never any blood or anything but she hates it runs away or eventually hisses or runs to me I feel bad because all he wants to do is let of some energy and play with a mate. My partner wants to smack him but I don't think that's nice to do to cats?6 days ago
Cami GrimesI adopted an older cat she is 16 years old and i figured by now she is set in her ways. While she gets fed 3-4 times a day, she mostly sleeps during the day and keeps to herself. but at night she will meow the house down and scratch at the door. Ive tried everything (i think). Is there a way to make her not nocturnal ?6 days ago
