Bondi Vet to host Earlwood pets’ day out

Bondi Vet star, Doctor Lisa Chimes, will be offering up her tips and tricks for pet parents and answering all your furry questions during her animal talk and Q&A at Pets’ Day Out on Sunday 19 May from 10am-2pm at Gough Whitlam Reserve in Sydney’s Earlwood. 

Dr Chimes (pictured) says attendees can expect to hear advice on general pet health and safety.

“Common questions can include things like toileting mishaps, dietary issues and skin problems,” she said.

“One of my favourite things about being a vet is helping people learn about their pets. Education is such an important part of preventative healthcare.” 

Pet owners will also hear from Canterbury SES on managing their pets during storms and floods, get some new dog training tips from the Hanrob Dog Training Academy and learn everything they need to know about pet first aid from event partner, Animal Referral Hospital. 

Bring your four-legged friend along for a purr-fect day of fun with the 500 Paws Walk, brought to you by Sydney Water and enter them in the Best Dressed Competition for the chance to win prizes. 

Council’s Animal Control Officers will also be available on the day offering free microchipping to Canterbury-Bankstown residents and information on responsible pet ownership, plus you can stock up on pet-friendly treats from a range of stalls. 

Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor, Bilal El-Hayek said the event will be a fun community day out for pet lovers and their furry friends alike.

“It’s a great way for pet owners to get information and advice from leading experts who really know their stuff,” Mayor El-Hayek said.

“You might even be able to teach your pet a new trick or two.”

Dr Chimes added that it is also a great opportunity to grow yours and your pet’s social network.

“I am looking forward to meeting enthusiastic pet owners who are keen to learn more about how best to care for their beloved pets,” she said.

“Pet people will be able to meet other likeminded members of the pet community too.” All leashed pets are welcome on the day. There will also be a range of free craft activities to keep the kids entertained, along with face painting and a petting zoo.

This FREE event will feature an Auslan interpreter located at the Pets Talk Stage from 10am-2pm. Get tips from animal experts and learn to teach your pet new tricks.
