Generous company support for burned wildlife

leave a comment »


Medical supplies generously donated by some key pharmaceutical companies are available to volunteer wildlife carers in North East Victoria to assist with the treatment of animals burnt and suffering as a result of the current bushfires.

Nationals Member for Benalla and veterinarian Bill Sykes congratulated volunteer wildlife carer and veterinary nurse, Tessa Stow from Myrtleford Veterinary Clinic for her initiative in contacting pharmaceutical companies.

Dr Sykes welcomed the generosity of Lyppard Australia, Bayer, Cenvet & VCA and Boehringer Ingelheim and noted that whilst many thousands of animals have died as a result of the fire, large numbers of birds and injured animals are being presented to wildlife carers for treatment.

Dr Sykes concluded, “I encourage all North East wildlife carers in need of medical supplies to contact Tessa on 5752 1235 B/H or 5763 2471 A/H to access these supplies.”
