PET FIRST AID SEMINAR WITH
NICOLE BROWN RVT
A great success! Thank you Nicole for sharing your knowledge with us!
Middlesex Agility Club is hosting a Pet First Aid Seminar with instructor Nicole Brown. Nicole is a graduate of Ridgetown College University of Guelph and a Registered Veterinary Technician with more than 20 years of experience. Currently, she manages two busy veterinary clinics in London.
Early in her career, Nicole developed a passion for teaching others and sharing knowledge. She started her agility career by accident with her Great Dane, Ebony in 2008. An unlikely partner, Ebony taught Nicole to appreciate the efforts our dogs put into playing the game with us. Ensuring we look after their bodies and properly caring for any issues that arise is foremost her mind each time she steps to the line with her canine partners.
Nicole is looking forward to welcoming you to the new Oak West Animal Clinic for this seminar. Topics will include: wound care, identifying an emergency, tick removal, bandaging, nail care and CPR. Each participant will receive a small first aid kit. ****Please remember though, nothing substitutes your Veterinarian in an emergency and unclear situations.
Legions For Lucas 3nd Annual Fun-Match and Raffle!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
The Fun Match and Raffle was another success due to the open hearts of a fabulous community. This year we managed to raise about $4500 to fight Cystic Fibrosis on behalf of Lucas and thousands like him. We managed to top last years earnings by almost $1000! We are speechless. We look forward to a day when we can hold this Match for another great cause because the enemy will have been defeated. Until then, thank you again for your support and we will see you again next year.

How cute is this guy? He is owned by Chevy, Twitch and Swerve, the Agility Dogs and they want him to be their future Junior Handler but they need your help! Their 'Kid' was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at two weeks of age and they are trying to help find a cure so Lucas will be able to run them. Lucas' everyday medical therapy consists of ten pill, two liquids, saline spray up the nose and respiratory physiotherapy 2 - 3 times per day plus more medication if he gets sick. Per his Mom Kara, 'No child should have to work so hard to breathe'.
To date, Legions for Lucas has raised a total $28 806 for CF, of that, the two Fun-Match and Raffle have raised $6 745. This year we would love to add to that total!
Your donations were responsible for increasing life expectancy about one year and helping to launch two exciting new drugs. Lucas' Mom, Kara Farwell and Dad, Aaron Robertson will again be joining the Walk to Make Cystic Fibrosis History At Greenway Park in London, Sunday, May 26th.
