Sydney Dogs and Cats Home

Shear PAWfection is proud to announce that we are now the chosen groomers for some of the stray dogs that are looking for a new home at Sydney Dogs and Cat home Princes Highway Carlton. Some of these pups need cleaning up and made comfortable so they are looking their best, that’s where we come in..

If your looking for another dog for either yourself or for an elderly person, why not adopt a dog that needs loving, they may be the ideal addition to your family, that your looking for.

Puppies are a lot of work, maybe a more mature dog would be more suitable, so before you choose to get a pup go check them out…or check out their facebook site for newest adoptions.

Heads up… Buckle up your Furbaby

Please be aware that traveling to our salon you must have your dog harnessed and in a seat belted position as per the NSW RTA ruling as if you do get pulled over and your puppy is not secured correctly you will be fined and you will lose points off your license.

Be aware some customers have already been fined, besides it’s safer for you and your furbaby.

Ever Notice how Dogs seems to Know when a Thunderstorm is eminent?

How crazy  do dogs go when thunder cracks or when fireworks go off, they seem to predict storms and hate the sound?
So many dogs get loose and decide to try and find you even when they have no idea where you are.

This is where having your dog micro chipped and having a good collar on them with some kind of identity tag comes in handy plus new to PETCARE are GPS trackers. Remember it’s sutherland council regulation to have both, micro chip and collar on your dog, so don’t get caught out.

Anyway have you tried a “Thunder Shirt” we have a few of our customers who are getting wonderful results from these, so check them out at “Petcare 2000”

We have had quite a few dogs come in with irritated skin

Possibly the  cause of this is wondering jew / wondering sailor (Tradescantia fluminensis).

This waxy looking weed proliferates in hot wet weather, so it’s no miracle of nature that it has taken hold in the shire.

This noxious weed is so easily spread, just one small broken piece can become a huge plant in a matter of weeks. It’s very common in NSW coastal areas, and the sap that it emits when broken is like itching powder to dogs. Eradication, is unfortunately a slow process of pulling out by hand, or where it’s very thick you can roll it up like carpet, (Round up- Glyphosate does not work on this weed) but removal is a must for small short legged dogs. Usually your pup will have a rash on their tummy if they are short, or around their bottom and tail, if they are taller, you will know they are irritated by incessant scratching. A warm bath in quality Oatmeal shampoo will ease the itching but if not see your vet and get rid of this weed. Good luck and Happy weeding.

Wondering jew or wondering sailor (Tradescantia fluminensis)
