Australia's biggest dog walk and free webinars for veterinary nurses

Phil puts in some serious training for the RSPCA Million Paws Walk on Sunday May 17.
What are you up to this weekend? The RSPCA’s annual Million Paws Walk is upon us. Philpers and I are volunteering at our local event on Sunday May 17. If you’ve got a dog, odds are you’d be spending some time with them anyway – so why not spend it and help a good cause at the same time? You can meet hundreds, if not thousands of other dogs and dog owners in your community and do something positive for animals.

Anyone can register, and all fees raised go to the RSPCA.

To register for the MPW in your state, visit the site and click on relevant piece of Australia. There are events happening in most major centres and capital cities.

Free membership of ISFM for veterinary nurses!

Everyone who works with cats knows that these creatures have special needs, and feline nursing brings its own unique challenges.

The International Society of Feline Medicine(ISFM) is offering free membership for vet nurses. There are already 4000 members. ISFM provides monthly webinars and a journal. They’re a fantastic international community, well-resourced and unwaveringly committed to feline welfare.

Nurses and technicians can go to their website to sign up. Next month's webinar in on acute pain management by anaesthetist Dr Jo Murrell.
