August 2019 - Dr Yoko and Dr Tiff have helped facilitate vet students developing teamwork skills at the annual Veteirnary Professional Life Camp held for the second year Murdoch Vet Students at Fairbridge. The purpose of the camp is for students to learn about teamwork, communication skills and positive psychology, as well as skills to help maintain mental health in what can be a challenging profession.
Dr Yoko also had the opportunity to complete her first ever high ropes course with the students, and did an amazing (and very brave) job of getting through all of the obstacles.
July 2019 - Earlier this month Dr Yoko attended the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists annual conference, where veterinary specialists go to get their annual dose of Australian cutting edge knowledge upgraded.
She had a fantastic time and has come back with tips and tricks from the talks she attended focusing on small animal medicine, surgery and behaviour. In keeping with our team's recent luck, she also won a textbook at the conference! Our library has now been upgraded with the latest information on Veterinary Nutrition.
June 2019 - Congratulations are in order once again, as Dr Jill has just received her Low Stress Handling Certification! Now, 2 of our vets and all of our nurses are Low Stress Handling (R) Certified, ensuring your pet's visit is as relaxed as possible.
Earlier this month, Dr Tiffany had the pleasure of assisting Kanyana Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre with the training of some of their volunteers, and ran a 3 hour lecture and practical session on Avian Anatomy and Physiology, which was well received. See here to learn more about Kanyana, and how they help wildlife in need, and how you can participate.
May 2019 - Fantastic News: Katelin has just received her Low Stress Handling Certification! This means ALL of our nurses are now Low Stress Handling (R) Certified, ensuring your pet's visit is as relaxed as possible.
April 2019 - Congratulations to our nurses Bec, Rebecca and Renee on achieving Australian Veterinary Nurse National Accreditation status, and being within the first 60 nurses across the country to achieve this goal! This year is the inaugural year for this qualification, a feat which requires at least 20 to 30 hours of continuing education on an annual basis as well as a written commitment and plan for ongoing personal development as a veterinary nurse. Adrian has started off his year of training by attending the national Australian Veterinary Nurse Conference in Brisbane earlier this month. He has come back full of enthusiasm for sharing his new knowledge with the rest of our team and patients.
We are exceptionally proud of all of our nurses, not only for all their hard work at our hospital, but also their dedication to ensuring that they have the latest knowledge and skills available to them!
February 2019 - As our team have become more involved in rehabilitation therapies, we have found that some pets need a bit more support to be independent. This is why we have become a Walkin’ Wheels Wheelchair Dealer. We now carry rear wheelchairs and kits to convert them into quad wheels for sale or hire.
Dr Yoko, Rebecca and Renee are certified to fit the chairs and our rehab team can develop individually tailored rehabilitation plans for these patients; providing more options to improve the mobility and quality of life to pets in Perth and WA. As our models can attest, they are comfortable to wear and easy to move around in. You can watch Roxy move around here.
January 2019 - Representing over 180 hours of continuing education and study over 2 years, we are pleased to announce our nurse Rebecca has become an internationally recognised Certified Canine Rehabilitation Veterinary Nurse!
She is the first nurse in WA with this qualification, and with Dr Yoko, we are now the first vet hospital in WA with a certified vet and nurse. In addition, Rebecca has also just completed her certification to be a canine wheelchair fitter with Walkin' Wheels! Well done Rebecca, your continued dedication and hard work to expand the services we can offer to our rehabilitation patients is outstanding!
October 2018 - Continuing on with the momentum from last month, our team have been even more busy on the learning front! We are extremely proud to announce that with Dr Tiffany completing her Low Stress Handling certification, Roleystone Animal Hospital is now a Low Stress Handling Certified Veterinary Hospital!
All of the staff at Roleystone Animal Hospital love animals and are dedicated to providing the best care possible to your furbabies. However we understand that for some pets, coming to the vet can be a stressful, or even scary experience. This is why we are committed to ensuring your pet has a positive, low stress experience when they come in to see us - we love seeing them and we want them to feel the same!
For this reason, our staff have undergone Certification in Low Stress Handling, so that we can foster and maintain a calm and trusting relationship with your pets. This Certification represents at least 20 hours of further study for each person who is certified and is comprehensive in teaching the latest in animal behaviour and body language. This ensures that we are well equipped to understand their "words", and has given us all many techniques and tips on how to handle pets in a positive and relaxing way.
July 2017 - More congratulations are in order! This month we are really excited to announce that Dr Yoko has just become certified as a Canine Rehabilitation Therapist. This qualification provides you with the assurance that your pet's osteoarthritis, post operative rehabilitation, lameness or neurologic disease has not only veterinary basis, but also a physiotherapy basis for treatment. Dr Yoko can design a wide range of therapeutic programs to improve your pet's comfort, mobility and function with both in clinic and at home treatments and exercises, that are both fun and functional.
