Would anyone like to have our 2 male guinea pigs - Patch and Milky while we are away for all of January? I have a house sitter but he will be at work during the days and on the hot days (anything above 30) they need someone to make sure they are keeping cool (shade, cool water, an ice brick or even bringing them inside for a break).


I will need to drop them and their hutch (1mt long) and everything thy need over to you by this Wednesday before we leave. They are great for kids to cuddle and feed. Please let me know if you would like to take them. 

Thanks Justine 0425 340 536.

Fireworks

Untitled-2

Hello everyone,

I'm positive that none of you subscribing to this newsletter would be setting off fireworks. However, you might know someone who thinks it is fun.
Please discourage them. 
As well as being illegal, it is also extremely cruel to pets and wildlife, who are terrified and often panic and injure themselves or run away from home. Some pets are never found again.

Happy New Year.


Judy.

More Wonderful

Untitled-2

Hi.

I know a few people have seen an echidna recently near Edgar's Creek, and now I have too!! It was around 1.30 in the afternoon, just north of the walking/bike track. So, just another reminder to be very aware of dogs off leash in this area. My pooch is usually off his lead, but I will be vigilant watching him now, and he will DEFINITELY be leashed around that area.


Let's hope s/he lives a happy long life in our neighbourhood.

CHOC Preschool Dental Check-up Program

This year the team at Coburg Hill Oral Care piloted a preschool dental check-up program between August and October 2014. Four preschools participated in this exciting program to strengthen the local community network and health services to promote oral health. A total of 100 children received complimentary dental check-ups.
Our findings show a large proportion of children did not require dental treatment. However, it was identified that 12 of the children did require further dental treatment, and an additional 2 children may need hospitalisation for urgent dental treatment.
It is anticipated that this program will be expanded from early next year. Anyone who is interested in our work or would like to participate in the program may contact our oral health therapist Mr Tan Nguyen at info@coburghilloralcare.com.au
