Melbourne pooches band together to raise funds for animals in need

Staffies, a Maltese and a Groodle – oh my! These four incredible canines star in Lort Smith’s 2020 fundraising calendar

Each of these incredible dogs have their own special story of bringing colour to the lives of everyone they meet. 

The fabulous Lort Smith’s Backyard Hero Panel’s Choice winner, Henry, has lent his Insta-star status (@henrygroodle) to promote Lort Smith’s work in the community. Henry’s carer, Fraser Davies, who also runs Field Black Café in Northcote, was thrilled for him to be part of the 2020 calendar, “[Henry] is so unique and I love to share him,” said Mr Davies. 

Lort Smith’s 2020 calendar dogs: Henry Groodle (Left) and Bosto the Staffy (Right)
Another Northcote local, and Lort Smith’s Backyard Hero People’s Choice winner, Bosto the Staffy, struts his stuff as Mr March. 

Proud carer, Tony Geveux, was excited to lend Bosto’s infectious smile to Lort Smith, 
“He gives so much joy to people, young and old. He is very loyal. Dogs can teach people a lot of things,” said Mr Geveux. Bosto also acts as a ‘therapy’ dog, providing comfort to Mr Geveux’s mother who has dementia. 

Lort Smith’s 2020 calendar dogs: Nala the Staffy (Left) and Cookie (Right)

Nala, the Staffy x Shar-Pei was just a puppy when she was surrendered to Lort Smith with a broken leg that required two surgeries, rehabilitation and physiotherapy. 

Costs associated with Nala’s treatment were covered by donations received from generous supporters. “Nala is the happiest little dog you could ever meet,” said her carer Audrey Lim.

The final of the fab four, Cookie is a recently retired Lort Smith Pet Therapy dog. Cookie and his carer regularly visited an aged care facility bringing joy, comfort and companionship to the residents.

If you are an animal lover, you will adore the Lort Smith 2020 calendar. Starring dogs, cats, reptiles, mice, birds and even wombats, the calendar celebrates the array of animals that vets treat every week at Australia’s largest not-for-profit animal hospital.

All profits raised from the calendar go direct to Lort Smith’s work, caring for sick, injured and vulnerable animals, and the people who care for them.

Calendars are available now for $15 (plus postage) from 
lortsmith.com/shop

They can also be purchased from the Hospital at 24 Villiers Street, North Melbourne.

Each year our team of more than 60 vets and 110 nurses provide quality care for around 25,000 animals.

MEDIA RELEASE, 19th November 2019

Last week, Swanky Paws in partnership with Studio1000 in Penrith have held one of the  swankiest VIP doggy parties Australia has ever seen.

The idea of the party was not just to celebrate the launch of Swanky Pawsnew line of  luxury “Coco” inspired dresses, it was also to support Pound Paws dog charity which focuses on assisting dogs needing a new home and avoiding euthanasia with a portion of sales being donated.


Christa Billich from Real Housewives of Melbourne and her beautiful Pomeranian Charlie headed up a very exclusive list of VIP Instagram famous dogs - with a combined following of over 210,000 -  from all across Sydney, who all came together for a very special dog party. 

The Swanky Paws “Coco” range includes two stunning prom style dresses, both designed by Instagram famous dog Coco (@coco_the_peekapoo). 

The first is called “Simply Coco” - a bright and vibrant pink dress, sure to make any pooch look their best. 
The other is the “Coco Lux” dress which is made in a Tiffany style blue and featuring over 100 genuine Swarovski crystals, all hand placed to ensure unrivalled shine. With only 20 made, this is a very limited edition.

The event was a huge success with the paw-rents enjoying champagne and canapés whilst their pooches lapped up the attention in the studio showing all their best angles, wearing everything from Swarovski-covered bows to flowing prom style dresses
The dogs were even treated to a dog-friendly cake from renowned luxury dog bakery Woof Gateaux as a thank you for all their modelling work.

Mark, the owner of Studio1000 had this to say “You would think photographing 17 insta famous dogs in our studio would be almost impossible! However as a dog-friendly studio it's all part of the unique photo shoot experience we are so well known for. Overall the Swanky Paws event has been a huge success for Studio1000.”

Following the success of last week's event the next one is already being planned on a bigger stage with an even larger amount of famous doggies expected to attend.

About Swanky Paws


Swanky Paws is a luxury dog brand, selling everything from Velvet Bow Ties to custom made Dog Tuxedos and Formal Dresses. 

Swanky Paws started in March 2019 when their French Bulldog lost all movement in her legs and was on the verge of being paralysed forever because of a spinal issue. 

The owners decided that to take care of her properly, they needed to work from home and took the plunge starting their own line of dog accessories and costumes.

Their own dogs' Instagram page (@tacos_frenchies) already had 22k+ followers. From attending dog events they knew that people wanted more choice in dog products with a gap in the market for more luxury items  and custom designs.

RRP: from $70 (Dog Dress); from $11 (Velvet Bow Tie); from $95 (Swarovski Bow Tie) at www.swankypaws.com.au

How often have you seen someone taking their pooch with them as they head off to the hairdresser? 

It happens more often than you think, particularly as pets are being treated more and more like humans. Several hairdressers report clients' pups sitting in the chair next to them while their owner is getting their tresses treated!

Whether pets are taken into the salon or not, it’s of little surprise that hairdressers have their clients talking to them about their fur babies as they sit in the salon and often know the pet’s names as well as their client’s children’s names! 


In order to capitalise on this current movement towards taking your pup to the salon, the clever people behind Paul Mitchell Professional Haircare (for humans!) have come up with a luxurious feeling, high-quality botanically based range of shampoos, detanglers, conditioners and wipes made specifically for dogs and cats.

Developed using the knowledge of what makes great haircare for humans plus the technical know-how of how formulations and PH levels need to be adjusted for safe use on animals, John Paul Pet grooming products really are for pets who get treated like humans.



All John Paul Pet products are:

✔️ cruelty free - they are tested on humans first

✔️ made from human grade ingredients 

✔️ contain natural plant oils and extracts that provide cleansing and healing properties and 

✔️ offer anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory support

With products for pooches with sensitive skin, light and white coloured coats (yes, it’s a blonding shampoo for dogs!), waterless shampoos and wipesJohn Paul Pet has the perfect product for every pooch. 

Price & Where to Buy

Available in select hair salons and independent pet stores. Contact Three Six Five Salon Group on 1300 365 350 or info@johnpaulpet.com.au for your local stockist.

The risk snakes pose to our pets is much more common than you would think. This spring, Pet Insurance Australia is issuing a timely reminder to all pet owners in Australia about the looming danger of snakes. 

PLUS: Top tips on how to discourage snakes from your property.

“Snake season has certainly arrived,” Nadia Crighton from Pet Insurance Australia says. “Around this time of year and until the end of summer, we commonly see a spike in claims related to snake bites around Australia.”

With Australia being home to 10 of the most venomous snakes in the world it’s no surprise our curious pets can be in harm’s way.

Porthos discovers a Golden-crowned snake,
venomous but not dangerous (Sydney)
“Many of these sleepy snakes are now waking with the arrival of the warmer weather,” Crighton warns. 

Sadly, many pets can see these slow slithering snakes as a curious object and even a toy leading to an increase in bites.”

The top two postcodes for snake bite claims were both in NSW - Bungendore and Queanbeyan, however right across Australia the numbers range from 18 to 524.
  
“Since 2013, Pet Insurance Australia’s underwriter, PetSure, has paid more than $4.2 million in claims for dogs suffering from snake bites,” Crighton says. “More than $1 million was also paid for cat claims in this period of time, signalling just how common this type of injury is.”

Pet Insurance Australia is also quick to remind readers that this is only a glimpse of the total cases vets are witnessing.

“Reme
mbering that this is only a snapshot from those who have pet insurance,” Crighton says. “The actual numbers of affected pets would be much higher.”
What does snake venom do to a pet?

  • lower motor neurone paralysis
  • prolonged or excessive bleeding
  • rupturing of red blood cells (haemolysis)
  • muscular weakness

“Unfortunately, treatment can be very costly,” Crighton says. “Anti-venom, hospitalisation and necessary supportive care is normally required, and in some cases even mechanical ventilation is required to help the affected pet breathe.” 

Animals on ventilators may require multiple vials of anti-venom, which also increases the cost of treatment. Up to 10 vials could be used on some dogs in order to save their lives.

Symptoms

  • drooling
  • trembling
  • vomiting
  • collapse
  • swollen painful bites around head, neck or front legs (most common)

“The bite area may be red and painful,” Crighton says. “Your pet may collapse initially and then be normal shortly afterwards, so if you even suspect your pet has been bitten, seek veterinary advice quickly.”

Prevention

1. Keep your dog on leash through grassy/bushland areas or avoid walking in these areas completely over spring and summer. This is particularly important if you live in a known snake area.

2. Keep grass short, and free from rubbish and other ‘snake hiding spots’ like wood piles.

3. Turn-off and empty any water features from around your home. Check for snake skins – if you suspect you have a snake on your property seek help from a professional snake remover.

“You can also consider adding in some snake-proof dog training,” Crighton says. “There are many professional training establishments who can help, for instance Pets Training & Boarding in Sydney. Their experienced and professional dog handlers can help you train your pet to stay away from snakes.”
