VetShop at the Nambour Dog Show

Recently VetShop was invited to be part of the inaugural Nambour Dog Show.

John Sherri, the Chief Steward, who was responsible for organising the Dog Show approached us to find out if we could lend any support.

We were more than delighted to.

Over 450 dogs flooded the showfield that morning, in all shapes and sizes. It was a rather unique scene on the field which usually host weekly Rugby matches.

It was a perfect morning for any show to be held, bright and sunny. Dr. Mark and I were Tent-thumb-VetShopLab.jpgamongst the first to arrive to set up our marquee which was just next to the stewards' stall.

The show's organiser were surprised with the number of entries received, some came from as far as 200km away.

We gave out heaps of brochures about who we are, products we range, heartworm, flea and tick control educational printed materials.

The response that we received was quite overwhelming. We received a lot of entries in the small contest that we held during the show.

We were particularly keen sherly-uluru-thumb-VetShopLab.jpg in cheering for Sheri and her dogs, Matilda and Uluru. Both are Australian Cattle dogs. Sheri consistently breeds champions Cattle Dogs. Not long ago she received a certificate for a pup that she bred and it won something big in New Zealand. Congrats!

A pure bred Doberman stole the judges' heart and ran away with the Best in Show award. Too bad I did not get the chance to snap a few pictures of finalist competing in the final round.

Overall, we had lots of fun. The feeling to reach out to the community was fantastic.
