FAQs

  • How can we tell if a cat is infected?

    There is a simple blood test currently available to detect infected cats. It will detect positive cats only 60 days after the infection. It does not detect cats that have been recently infected (less then 60 days). Kittens can be tested for FIV but sometimes the antibodies they receive from the mother's milk can cause a false positive result. It is then advised to retest them at 6 months of age.

  • Why pet insurance?

    -Gives you the chance to consider ALL treatment options for you pet. -Gives you the chance to provide the BEST care possible. -Gives you and your family peace of mind. -Saves you having to choose between costs or euthanasia. Insure your puppy or kitten as quickly as possible and avoid frustrating exclusions based on age or pre-existing conditions! A small price to pay for peace of mind...

  • What are the signs of snake envenomation?

    Disorientation, trembling, vomiting, salivation and frothing at the mouth, pale gums, transient collapse with apparent recovery, fast, laboured and shallow breathing, dilated pupils, hind limb weakness, progressive paralysis, brown/red urine, coma and death.

  • What is FIV?

    Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) is caused by a viral infection that interferes with your cat's immune system and is potentially life threatening. The virus is very similar to HIV virus that causes AIDS in humans and this is why it is often called cat AIDS. Humans cannot be infected with the cat virus.

  • What can I do to prevent toad poisoning?

    Keep your dog inside or under supervision at night. Control toad population in your area. Dogs can be trained not to attack toads.

  • What do I do in the case my dog is poisoned?

    Dry the mouth and cheeks with paper towel. Using gently running water rinse your dog's mouth for 10 minutes. A slow jet of water from a hose or laundry tap is commonly used. Direct the jet forward and not in your dog's throat. You can use a soft rag to gently rub the gums and teeth as you proceed. Keep your animal cool, calm and quiet. Seek veterinary attention as soon as possible. If caught early most dogs will survive the incident.

  • How do cats get infected?

    FIV is mostly transmitted from one infected cat to the other via fighting and biting. A mother cat can also infect her kittens via her placenta or through her milk. Outdoor cats, especially those getting into fights are at higher risks of contracting the disease. It is reported that 14-29 % of cats in Australia are FIV positive.

  • What are the signs of toad poisoning?

    Profuse salivation and foaming at the mouth within minutes of exposure. Vomiting. Red and inflamed gums. Restlessness, panting, trembling. Seizure activity. Increased heart rate, arrythmia, heart failure and heart attack. Coma and death.

  • What do I do if my dog has been bitten by a snake?

    Stay calm and keep your dog nice and quiet. Seek veterinary attention immediately, do not wait for symptoms to appear. The sooner your pet is treated, the better the chance of survival. If practical, a pressure bandage can be applied on the limb. If it is safe to do so, try to identify the snake in order to match the antivenom. Snakes are protected species and it is not recommended to kill them. It is not safe for you and you might loose precious time before your pet can be treated.

  • What do I do to protect my cat from FIV?

    It is best to keep your cat indoor especially at night and to limit exposure to other cats. If you are introducing a new cat in the household it is best to test it for FIV first. If your cat has been tested negative for FIV it can then be vaccinated against the disease.
