PRIME PREMISES FOR SALE OR LEASE Keep your pet healthy Cute as: Make sure your kittens are healthy. Spring is the perfect time to make sure that your pet is in great health. Here are some tips from Purina New Zealand. Problematic Parasites: Cats and dogs are prone to parasites. Signs to look for are changes in your pet s behaviour, appetite or water consumption. Treat para- sites as soon as possible. Fleas: If you notice your pets scratching, check their skin to see if they have fleas. There are over- the-counter products you can buy from your pet store or vet that will have instructions. Worms: Ways to tell if your pet has worms are visible worms or eggs in fecal matter (if you re brave enough to check), visible worms in fur or the area around your pet s rear, pets scratching or rubbing their rear on the ground or against furniture, vomiting with visible worms, a bloated belly, diarrhoea, weakness, weight loss or changes in appetite. Over the counter treatments are available but if these don t relieve the symptoms see your vet. Grooming: Spring is a good time to get your pets groomed and shed that winter thick coat for the coming warmer months. Fleas and ticks are more prolific in the summer months, so a shorter coat will make it easier for you to check for pests. Nails: Check if your pet s nails are getting too long. If the nails are making contact with the floor, it s time for a clip. Nails that are too long can affect the way dogs or cats walk and make it hard for them to grip the floor. Overgrown nails can also become ingrown and infected. The trick is to cut just above the quick (the blood vessels and nerves that supply the nail) but not into it, as this will cause pain and bleeding. If you re unsure, ask your vet to show you how to do it the first time. Melanoma: Yes, pets can get skin cancer too and skin tumours are the most common cancers found on pets. Areas that are not shielded with fur are more suscep- tible, such as the nose and pads of the feet. Animals with light- coloured or thin coats are also more at risk. Check for lumps and bumps, wounds that don t heal, lameness, swelling in the bone or abnormal bleeding. If you unveil anything that concerns you, see your vet. If caught early, a lot of skin cancers can be treated. Oral Health: Make sure all is well and good in your pet s mouth. If your pet has really bad breath, excessive drooling, inflamed gums, tumours in the gums, cysts under the tongue or loose teeth, take them to your vet. Infections are no fun and can usually be treated or prevented before they get worse. Footpads: Even though our pets footpads are the toughest part of their skin, they re subjec- ted to a lot of shock and pressure from running and standing on all sorts of surfaces all day. If an injury does occur on the pads of their feet, the injuries can often just worsen. Make sure you watch for bleeding, limping, discolour- ation of the pad, excessive licking of the pad and lacerations, punc- tures or abrasions. Eye health: Your pet s eyes are crucial to their safety and well- being, so it s important you look after them. If you notice that your pet has red eyes, an excess of mucus, lots of blood vessels, weep- ing eyes or cloudy eyes, make sure you see your vet.

The project to re- introduce kokako to Puketi Forest is well under way with a further six birds transferred from Mataraua Forest last week, including one needed to complete the pairing of birds released last month. Mataraua has the only remaining sustainable population of kokako in Northland with enough numbers to relocate and establish a second colony in Puketi Forest. The project, organised by the Puketi Forest Trust in collaboration with the Conservation Department, To Roroa of Waipoua and Pili te Aroha Marare, will re- locate 10 birds this year. A further 10 will be transferred next year. Forest & Bird is con- ducting its eighth annual Bird of the Year vote. Go to birdoftheyear.or- g.nz to vote. Polls close on October 10. Go to puketi.org.nz to donate or volunteer.
