Big (Pets) Day Out

Project ‘Pooch Protect’ is hitting town, so grab your most loyal friend and prepare to pamper your pooch, meet fellow dog lovers and make your canine a star for the day!

There’s a load of fun and free activities, from dog grooming sessions, where owners can master dog brushing and learn how to check their pets for ticks and fleas, to getting Spot snapped by the professional dog photographer. You’ll even have expert advice on hand from Dr Romy, The Roaming Vet and ambassador for The Advantage Family A-Team. Dr Romy will be educating dog owners on the importance of keeping dogs happy, healthy and protected against deadly Aussie paralysis ticks.


Project ‘Pooch Protect’ is taking place in some of the state’s most tick-prone areas. It will educate dog owners about the need to protect their canine companions from deadly Australian paralysis ticks before they even have a chance to bite and attach to your dog thereby saving them from many hours of discomfort and, in extreme cases, saving their lives. Pawfect!
