The surging popularity and positive feedback for the previous eight page editions of Talk With The Animals saw issue number six again double in size — to 16 pages, meaning even more in-depth articles. Distribution was also increased, with copies being delivered to every home, farm and business from Myrtleford down to Dinner Plain. The popularity of the newsletter with visitors also saw the Winter 2011 issue being placed in motels, cafés and caravan parks across the region.
In this issue we covered the nightmare epidemic of poor oral health care in dogs and cats, plus feline viral infections, keeping ferrets as pets, feline osteoarthritis, roundworm in goats, and Dr Bek’s guaranteed DIY treatment for horses suffering a painful greasy heel affliction.
Using the Viewer: Newsletters are viewable as a magazine format. For the optimum viewing/reading experience we suggest you click on the fullscreen icon () in the preview toolbar below. This will open the files in a new fullscreen page. You can then use the page controls to turn the page, or go to specific pages, and the zoom controls for optimum viewing on your computer. The default 100% view will usually provide a clear reading experience but zooming in, or out, should not affect the sharpness of the text or images. On smaller monitors you may have to scroll. To return to standard view just click the fullscreen icon again.
