State houses go


this week

By ALECIA ROUSSEAU State houses are being demolished on Rugby Street this week with no intention from the Government to replace them. Housing New Zealand general manager for property services Marcus Bosh said five buildings were in need of destruction after dozens were assessed and several found to be earthquake prone. ‘‘Because they had such a low rating it would have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars for us to make them safe for tenants. They also required significant upgrade to make them warmer and drier.’’ He said Palmerston North had low demand for housing and enough properties to house those in need. ‘‘It simply doesn’t make sense for us to strengthen them.’’ Future use of the land remained unclear and HNZ would make a decision in June regarding a further 16 properties, he added. ‘‘We have strengthened, refurbished and re-tenanted over 160 homes in the Wellington region. These are in areas of high demand such as Porirua and Lower Hutt.’’ More than 31,000 properties once state-owned have been sold to private dwellers across the country but a recent Parliamentary select committee report found HNZ’s consultation with s o m e c o m m un i t i e s f a c i n g redevelopment was inadequate. Recent reforms have mean’t they no longer offer emergency housing and all local offices have been closed, with queries directed to call centres. Future plans may see Wanganui lose up to 260 state homes by

A little thanks

I would like to acknowledge the agencies and community groups who stood together to do their bit for senior drivers last week. The Guardian newspaper and local radio stations for publicity, Horizons Road safety with some funding and admin support, PNCC with some funding and assistance on the day, Police for their input, the Feilding and Palmerston North Central Baptist Churches for providing venues and Feilding Promotions for taking the bookings. There was no number eight wire in evidence but I was blown away by the help to make this important event happen. In all around 60 seniors attended a free four-hour workshop that should help them to stay safe for the rest of their driving careers and plan for life after driving. ANDREW ROBERTSON Feilding.

Adequate housing

Over the past few weeks we have seen State Houses demolished, first time home owners shut out of the market, the WOF under trial finding very few houses come up to standard. It’s a person’s fundamental right to have adequate housing. At the Housing Advice Centre we see people living in their cars as they have no housing. Sometimes they’re woman or couples with children and they often have employment. When given the choice of emergency housing, sometimes they stay in their cars, rather than shift into something that is temporary and living with a lot of other people, or being separated from each other. They just want something warm, dry, safe and affordable. I urge every voter to first of all vote, second read the party policies on housing and shun the rhetoric. Please make housing an election issue and demand affordable housing for all. The Government is only interested in the critical housing situation in Auckland and Christchurch. Inadequate housing in the regions does not feature on the government’s radar. With recent events Palmerston North should be an important election sign post so let’s get affordable, adequate housing on the radar for everyone. SUE SWINBOURNE Manager, Housing Advice Centre

Convicted murderer released By ALECIA ROUSSEAU A man who raped and murdered a 19-year-old Palmerston North woman outside a Victoria Avenue block of flats has been released from prison. Carl Liam Martinson was originally freed in 2012 but was recalled the following year after breeching his parole conditions. He was found by a probation officer at a nightclub — the same kind of scene where he met his victim, Donnell Marie Wood. After spending the night drinking with her at a local bar in May 1993, Martinson who was only

17 at the time, walked his victim home. He then raped and attacked Wood, stomping her to death. Neighbours reported hearing screams but no-one found her body until the following morning. Martinson told police he had ‘‘blacked out’’ and denied any memory of the events. He was found guilty by a jury trial and sentenced to life imprisonment. The decision by the parole board states they feel Martinson would not pose an undue risk to the community. He will be allowed to work on a rural farm with another person he met while in prison.

A report into the suitability of the address concluded it was suitable, however the farm could not be monitored by GPS therefore he will be required to stay home overnight. The farm, which is part of the Release to Work programme, was described as a ‘‘very pro-social’’ environment for parolees. Other conditions for Martinson include treatment and counselling, not to enter or be found in the Palmerston North region without permission and not to approach or enter licensed premises. The details of his address are supressed.

ACTIVIST: Well-known campaigner Murray Horton visited Palmerston North last week on his crusade against foreign control of New Zealand. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Foreign control opposed By DALE WICKEN A visiting activist has spoken out against foreign ownership of New Zealand, saying it does little for our country. Campaign Against Foreign Control of Aotearoa (CAFCA) organiser Murray Horton spoke to a crowd of interested locals at the Palmerston North City library last Thursday night, raising issues he hopes will be on the election agenda this year. Foreign investment in New Zealand increased from $9.7 billion in 1989 to $101.4 billion last year. Foreign owners control 33 per cent of the share market, which does little for employment and improving New Zealand’s foreign debt problem, according to Mr Horton. ‘‘Ownership means political power. Our government should help its own

people, not transnational corporations. It should be a seen as a privilege, not a right, for foreign companies to invest in New Zealand.’’ Child poverty, homelessness, inequality, unemployment, low wages and the long-suffering of Christchurch residents are examples of what happens when people aren’t the centre of the economy, he said. While transnational companies make large profits out of New Zealand, only 27 per cent of the $73.4 billion in profits was reinvested in New Zealand. Mr Horton exerted his belief the GCSB spy bases in Tangimoana and Waihopai should be shut down and the controversial TPPA agreement shouldn’t be passed through Parliament. His stop in Palmerston North was part of a nationwide tour.

Shuttle service needs volunteers By DALE WICKEN A shuttle service that failed to kick off in Palmerston North is proving invaluable to residents of Feilding and Ashhurst. The St John shuttle service, based out of St John in Feilding, provides a pickup and dropoff service for people who would otherwise be unable to attend appointments. The service was instigated in 1996 and, despite a trial of a shuttle based in Palmerston North, it failed to work meaning this shuttle now services Feilding, Palmerston North, Ashhurst, Linton and surrounding townships. The service is dependent on volunteer drivers, who are in short supply, according to St John area administrator Brian Crothers. ‘‘We need seven or eight, or up to 10 new drivers to make it easier for the ones we do have. We do 10,000 kilometres a month and our volunteers do 400 hours a month. We’ve applied for funding from the health board but were told there isn’t facility for it.’’ Volunteer driver John Lowen spends 30 hours a week on board and has taken on the job of coordinating all bookings. ‘‘My wife died suddenly and I got a bit bored so a friend mentioned that St John were always on the lookout for drivers. I’ve been doing it for nine years now,’’ he said. A typical day for Mr Lowen will begin at 6.45am and consist of up to 45 trips. ‘‘I do it simply because I can help people. Like today that’s 18 people who’ve been helped in getting to their appointments — there’s a lot of satisfaction from that. And there’s always one good news story and one laugh by the end of the day.’’ Regular shuttle user Malcolm Roberts

has been using the shuttle twice a week for three years. ‘‘I can’t drive anymore and it helps my wife out too, she’s a chronic asthmatic,’’ he said. ‘‘I sometimes use it once a month, sometimes three to four times a month. I’d be lost without it. They’re a friendly bunch and very obliging,’’ Rose Mulholland said. Anyone over the age of 21 with a full drivers licence can volunteer as a driver.

Pasifika clinic launched in Highbury By DALE WICKEN Improving health of Pacific people and making them aware of what services are on offer is the goal behind Palmerston North’s newly launched Pasifika health clinic. The clinic, which will run free health visits every Tuesday, was officially opened at the Pasifika Centre in Highbury on Tuesday morning. Staffed by three registered nurses, the clinic is open to any Pacific families who need healthcare advice or checkups. Meeting the Ministry of Health targets for Pacific people is what the nurses are working towards, which includes increasing the number of health checks, diabetes reviews and smoking cessation clients. ‘‘It’s all about improving the health of Pacific people. Lots of Pacific people have problems accessing the relevant health care — half of them don’t even know what PHO means or what it can offer them,’’ community care nurse Folole Fai said. ‘‘It’s always a pleasure and privilege to work for my people.’’ Director of Maori health, Materoa Mar, said the establishment of this facility had been in the works for many years so seeing it come to fruition was a proud moment. ‘‘We hope over time to be able to grow the services to reflect what’s needed in the community,’’ she said. The decision to hold the clinic in the Pasifika Centre was made because of its accessibility and child-friendly space. ‘‘One day we would love to turn this place into a building for other services too, like with housing, immigration and health under the one roof,’’ Ms Fai said. The nurses operate the clinic throughout the MidCentral region, with the launch of the Horowhenua branch tomorrow.

Students at Monrad Intermediate may need to refine their gardening skills after a generous donation from Horizons’ Regional Council. The community grant of $400 was given to the school in order to establish four new vegetable plots and two compost bins. Food technology teacher Hilary Marshall said the school was incredibly thankful for the grant because it had allowed them to reduce costs and waste. ‘‘We’ve been able to create our own fertiliser with the compost and supplement brought produce we use in class.’’ She said the idea to establish a compost heap came about last year after realising too much waste was being produced at school. ‘‘We started by getting a recycling bin for the kitchen which made a big difference but we had nowhere to put our food scraps — this soon led to the idea of having a compost bin and vegetable garden to spread it on.’’ With no budget for her project, Ms Marshall decided to learn about HRC’s community grants. ‘‘It’s fantastic we have this resource available for students to learn from,’’ she said. ‘‘They provide the opportunity for cooking students to pick fresh vegetables, learn how to wash and de-root them, and try vegetables they haven’t before.’’ While the vegetables are growing into something edible, two Year 7 students will be using the plots for a science project. HRC environmental educator Helen Thomas said it was fantastic the plots and compost bins were being used for sustainable and educational purposes. ‘‘It’s great to see Monrad School taking the initiative and exploring an aspect of reducing waste and encouraging green fingers. The fact they’re able to tie in multiple focus areas, like a science project, really lends credit to this being a sustainable and educational venture that will have a big impact.’’

STUFFED: PN Personnel celebrate after raising money for breast cancer. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

By ALECIA ROUSSEAU A local business has gone out into the community to raise awareness for those suffering from breast cancer. Palmerston North Personnel have donated almost $1500 to the cause after the team baked, sold and delivered more than 300 cupcakes to the Manawatu region last Friday morning. Client manager Mason Parker said the ingredients was purchased by the company who were determined to donate every cent. ‘‘It was a real community effort— Melody’s New World custom made a pink ribbon cake and donated trays for the goods, Puddleducks looked after Cushla’s

children so she could bake without interruptions, Kairanga Poultry donated eggs, Onyx Finance donated $75 and after winning the pink ribbon cake, donated the cake back to us to raise more donations. Plumbing World Head Office made the largest donation ultimately winning them them the cake.’’ He said the organisation became involved after staff member Cushla Brasell suggested the idea. They also supply meals on wheels through the hospital offering staff and a car for the weekly trips. ‘‘We all live play and work locally. The Manawatu region is our home and we want to put something back into it.’’

Family Works Central, a division of Presbyterian Support Central, has signed a contract with the Ministry of Justice approving them as a supplier of Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) services to the Ministry of Justice under the new Family Justice System. Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) is a Government-funded service (for those who qualify for funding) which helps families reach agreement on parenting arrangements after a separation or divorce. The mediation service which was launched in March as part of the new Family Justice System changes, has been designed to support parents and guardians to resolve their childcare arrangement matters outside of the Family Court, wherever possible. Presbyterian Support Central chief executive, Chris Graham (pictured), says that it’s great to be offering another service to families in need. ‘‘Family Works has always had children at the heart of everything it does. Family dispute resolution is yet another way we can support children, families and whanau in our region.’’ The new out-of-court FDR mediation services are designed to help families reach agreement on parenting arrangements after separation without going to court. ‘‘Family breakdown can have a devastating effect on children and young people. Our new FDR service will aim to reduce the stress on children and families by avoiding the conflict, delays and expense going to court can involve. After all, it’s all about the kids.’’ The service sees Family Works Central and Family Works Upper South Island working together to provide the mediation services between Taranaki and Canterbury. Family Works Central will undertake three components of the

The company’s high standard of work has been their hallmark since 1914.

The public are strongly advised to deal with an NZMMMA member when contemplating buying a memorial because they are guaranteed that the work will be performed by professionals with full training in the industry behind them. This certainly applies to Anderson Memorials. They have been in existence for 100 years with five generations involved and they look forward to perhaps another generation coming on.

A wild and wintry weekend left us with only one option last weekend which was to go to Te Manawa. We took the kids along and saw the Saturday Art classes up and running, Discovery Time had children seriously focused on dinosaur sketching and stencil activities and we were so excited to be around for World Fish Migration Day with the opportunity to take part in the live feeding of the native fish, talks and tours in Te Awa-The River. People were queuing up to play the piano and enjoyed listening to others while they were waiting. Te Manawa is pleased to see such interest in the piano, with the time drawing closer to its departure (June 22). There’s still some special concerts coming up before the piano goes however, including Michael Houstoun (pictured); New Zealand’s leading Concert Pianist. We can buy tickets to this event on June 14 for $35 from Te

Manawa’s front desk. This concert will be a great opportunity to hear a pianist of Michael’s calibre in Te Manawa Art Gallery — such a unique setting. Coming up over the next week are lots of activities for all walks of life. Discovery Time of course will be up and running in the weekend with activities around exploring sound and then on Monday (Queen’s Birthday), Te Manawa will have free activities available through the day including a Magician at 11am. Next Saturday, June 7, Mirror Magic opens. This show costs $2 per person (under 2s free) — we can’t wait to go exploring around all the different mirrors. This show has been at Te Manawa before, it was so fun last time and we’re excited about its return. Keep an eye out for further information on the website, ‘like’ TM Facebook or call on (06) 3555-000.

With many of the exhibitors offering special expo-only packages and discounts you may find yourself saving hundreds of dollars as well.

Think outside the box with tiles

Tiles are stylish and good-looking. They can provide a remarkable number of home building or renovation solutions, and The Tile Depot is just the place to get them. At The Tile Depot, you'll have access to an amazing range of products, backed up by staff who know tiles from top to bottom. You'll find tradespeople behind the counter, people who speak your language, and can help you with design and product selection, whether it's a professional installation or DIY. They're the ``sharp pencils'' that are the business' great strength. They know the ins and outs of tiles, what'll work and what won't, and the many ways tiles can improve your home. ``Tiles are not just a replacement for vinyl floors,'' says managing director Mike Stunt. ``They can accomplish almost anything you might imagine. They can bring an entranceway to life, or in conjunction with under-tile heating they can floor your entire home.'' You can spot the advantages of The Tile Depot from the moment you walk in the door. There's a lot of space on the showroom floor, allowing room for design inspiration and in-situ displays that give you a look at possible outcomes for your home. At the moment there's a full shower cabinet and a bespoke tiled bathtub, just two ways tiles can invigorate your living environment. The Tile Depot is one of New Zealand's biggest tile importers. They're constantly bringing in fresh stock from Europe and Asia. This is a boon for homeowners and also businesses: Mike says it will be possible to put together commercial tile packages at great rates, with a huge variety of tiles to choose from. ``We've brought Auckland prices and selection to Manawatu,'' says Mike, ``We can draw on The Tile Depot's experience nationwide, while still being completely locally owned and operated.''

|Phone Roger on 027 625 8180

If your looking from the floor up, reach for the phone and call ZERObugs Total Pest control for complete, prompt and friendly service. Established in 2002, Roger Johnstone, owner/operator of ZERObugs Ltd has been providing clients throughout the region with satisfying pest control. And, even if clients don’t find satisfaction in their particular pest problem, then Rodger urges “give us a call, we can go that extra mile”. ‘We treat for all insect pests and with the cooler months approaching, you may find the rodents start appearing, we can sort these out as well”. They’re not fussy where they get settled, new homes, the family home, rentals or commercial premises, ZERObugs is ready to move them on.

As we are coming out of the busy bug season, now is the time to look at your property (your investment), and look at ways of helping to eliminate where insects may harbour over the colder months. Shrubs and trees jammed up against building walls is one place where the ants in particular can enter your dwelling, into the wall panels and further up into the roof areas where they can nest and multiply.

Loose leaves on the ground is another area, they may be a nuisance with the ‘fall’ but better swept up and into the compost bin. With all this in mind, it may be a matter of considering having your property washed down and looking good for the summer months. Although ZERObugs can handle the smaller single story houses and business premises, there are other more specialized companies in our area that can tackle those larger more intricately shaped buildings. ‘Our company is called in often to follow up this maintenance by including an exterior spider treatment which puts a finishing touch to the completed job”.

Manawatu Guardian

Nominations for Pride of NZ awards The Manawatu Guardian is getting behind a project to find deserving heroes in our community and we want you to submit your nominations now. We’re looking for those everyday Kiwis who selflessly strive to make New Zealand an even better place to live. They’ll be celebrated as part of the nationwide Pride of New Zealand Awards, which will recognise leaders, campaigners, volunteers, teachers, care givers and other unsung heroes who have done something extraordinary in their community. The award is supported by Manawatu Guardian together with sponsors The New Zealand Herald, radio station The Hits, and TSB Bank. Awards categories will be judged by a panel of prominent Kiwis and our readers will also get to have a say through the TSB Bank’s People’s Choice Award. Regional winners will be named in early August and national winners will be announced at a ceremony in September. The categories are: ■ Bravery/Heroism Award — recognising those who have selflessly disregarded their own safety in order to help or save the life of another person or persons. ■ Community Spirit Award — recognising those whose selfless, tireless and largely unacknowledged actions have enriched the lives of those in their community. ■ Fundraiser of the Year Award — recognising those who have gone beyond all expectations to raise money for a good cause, however large or small the amount. ■ Emergency Services Award — recognising those professional or volunteer emergency service members who have gone beyond the call of duty to protect their community. ■ Environmental Award — recognising those who have positively impacted the environment, making a difference to the wider community. ■ Lifetime Achievement — recognising those whose ongoing commitment to their cause has

Free entry for local residents Since its launch at the start of the month, our new local Residents Card has taken off with great success with more than 300 locals signing up. For those of you who’ve missed the advertising campaign or the mayors’ launch ceremonies, the Residents Card is a new collaborative promotion led by Destination Manawatu including Te Manawa, the Coach House Museum and the New Zealand Rugby Museum. It gives any local resident free entry to three museums at any time when they present their card and bring at least one paying adult with them. Two new card-holders, Paul Scott from Palmerston North and Helen Maxwell from Feilding, should be particularly happy about having joined. As part of the draw for those who signed up on the launch weekend, they each won a three-course meal for two from Hotel Coachman. Getting a card is easy and I would encourage those of you who haven’t yet to get one for yourself. You can do so by visiting any of these museums with proof of your address and photo ID — they’ll create a free card for you on the spot. This will be particularly useful this long weekend as the museums remain open every day of the Queens Birthday holiday. The New Zealand Rugby Museum in particular is encouraging visitors this weekend as they launch a new collection of mementos and rugby jerseys recently donated by Sir Graham Henry from his time as a coach, including his personally embroidered All Blacks tracksuit, worn during our triumphant Rugby World Cup win. If you have friends and family visiting this weekend, or even if you

CONSUMER ADVICE WITH CITIZENS’ ADVICE BUREAU The Mobility Parking Permit Scheme supports people with a variety of mobility impairments and permits are issued by CCS Disability Action. As a permit holder you can park in designated mobility parking places. You can also park for longer than the stated time in PNCC managed car parking spaces. For example, when you park in a metered park or a pay-anddisplay zone you can pay for the maximum time allowed and stay an additional 60 minutes without charge. Your permit does not allow you to park illegally or to park for free where charges are indicated. Having a medical condition or disability doesn’t automatically

entitle you to a permit, there are criteria to be met and your doctor needs to confirm your eligibility. There are two types of permit: 1. Long-term permit — for those with a permanent condition or disability that affects mobility. This is valid for

five years, doesn’t need further medical information for renewal and costs $50. 2. Short-term permit — for those with a temporary condition. This can be valid from three to 12 months and costs $35. You can get an application form by visiting or call your local CCS Disability Action branch on 0800 227 2255. There are some conditions of use: ■ Your permit must be displayed on the dashboard with the details clearly visible. ■ You must ensure your permit is valid. ■Your permit can only be used by you. ■ If you, the permit holder, are staying in the vehicle, it must be

Celebrating our stars — golf Here at Sport Manawatu we’re celebrating the past, present, and future of sporting talent in the Manawatu region. This month we’re highlighting the stars of golf. Jean Whitehead (pictured) is a legend, there is no question. By 1955 Jean had won the New Zealand foursomes title and the New Zealand plate, and showed no signs of slowing down. By 1973 she had won gold twice at the New Zealand woman’s amateur championships. Whitehead’s hugely successful golfing career was acknowledged in 1968 when she won the Manawatu Sportsperson of the Year award. But Jean Whitehead is as much a legend off the green as she is on it, spending time as president of the Manawatu Golf Club and of the Manawatu-Wanganui District Golf Association, as well as being a selector for New Zealand Golf. Jean is a true ambassador of the game. Josh Munn began playing golf at age 13 and has been enormously successful since. He first made a name for himself in 2011 when he won the open at the Charles Tour. Munn further showed his talents in 2012 in the playoff for the SBS invitational title where he took what he refers to as ‘‘his most spectacular shot’’, sinking a 45 foot putt which led to the province’s first win in 10 years. Munn has hit his stride in the past few years, winning numerous international events and just recently taking a spectacular New

Whitehead’s hugely successful golfing career was acknowledged in 1968 when she won the Manawatu Sportsperson of the Year award.

Zealand Amateur Championship win — the first Manawatu player in over 80 years. With such an impressive year, he’s a likely contender for Sport Manawatu’s Sportsperson of the Year. Brydie Hodge is an up-andcoming golfing sensation. At only 17, Hodge has been ranked the Number 1 woman in her district. Last year was a strong year for Brydie; representing ManawatuWanganui at the Toro Interprovincial Champs at Muriwai and winning the Horowhenua and Wanganui Open women’s titles. Her success continued this year where she competed at the New Zealand Women’s Open alongside some of the world’s top players. Hodge is currently in Victoria, Australia, competing at the Australian Junior Amateur after recently being selected for the New Zealand junior team. Golf in the region is moving from strength to strength, from legend to legend, so get your clubs and hit the green.

The excavator can be used for trenching and track clearing and the acquisition of a new tilt bucket is ideal for contouring metal tracks and driveways. DCM Contracting can also deliver loads of metal, soil, bark or rocks to clients. The size of the truck means that in many cases the load can be dumped in the exact position that the client needs it. With a 160S Bobcat, a three and a half tonne Yanmar excavator and a five tonne Nissan tip-truck, most small contracting jobs can be handled. The compactness of the machines means they can access fairly tight areas and usually with minimal disturbance to the property concerned.

Touch, Paws! Aching arthritis

Arthritis is a common disease which can affect animals at any age but is usually seen in our “oldies”, and clinical signs are often exacerbated by chilly winter weather.

The majority of joints have a smooth layer of cartilage covering the ends of the bones and there is also “lubrication” within the joints, called synovial fluid. Arthritis occurs when, for whatever reason, the cartilage becomes damaged or worn to the point where bone is

A great cover up & a timely reminder

Free Gift with Purchase!

Simply purchase any pack of FRONTLINE® Plus for Cats, or 2 packs of BROADLINE® for cats and receive a FREE flea application timer OR purchase any pack of FRONTLINE Plus for Dogs and receive a FREE protective car seat cover. %&& ",)*!!# $&)+ ),'*#( Promotion starts 19 May 2014, while stocks last.*


Rebekah Willink, Totally Vets rubbing on bone with no cushioning, causing pain and inflammation. Also the synovial fluid may lose some of its effectiveness and the lubrication in the joint is lessened. Arthritis is commonly seen in the hips, elbows, stifles, hocks and shoulders, but it can affect other joints, including the spine.


Did you know? One in three cats suffer from arthritis, and it also affects 90% of cats over 12 years of age! Signs of arthritis in cats and dogs can include: • Trouble getting up in the morning • Limping • A reluctance to walk, climb or jump • Declined activity and/or sleeping more • Restlessness, or finding it hard to get comfortable • Lagging behind on a walk • Painful to touch/handle • Aggression • Licking at a joint • Changes in behaviour • Loss of appetite Managing arthritis often requires a multi-factorial approach: Weight control. Arthritis is worsened by carrying excess weight, so it is important to feed an appropriate diet and to not over-feed.

Exercise. Moderate activity will strengthen muscles, keep ligaments and tendons flexible and help keep joints moving. Swimming can be ideal in some cases as a “low-impact” form of exercise. Dietary supplements. Joint health supplements can include glucosamine, chondroitin and green lipped muscle extract and are safe to use in most patients.

Unfortunately there is no cure for arthritis but by getting onto things early so that further damage is prevented or slowed, and by reducing pain and inflammation, you can make your pet’s life easier and more comfortable. If you would like any help or advice, contact Totally Vets on 06 323 6161 and speak to our friendly staff.

Prescription medications. There are many options available including antiinflammatories and drugs for the relief of chronic pain. Your vet will decide upon an appropriate pain management protocol and please be sure to not ever give human medications to your pet before speaking with your vet. Acupuncture is quite a painless procedure and has shown to be effective in some cases. Stem cell therapy is a new and expensive technique that is currently emerging in veterinary medicine. Environmental changes. Be sure to make your pet’s favourite sleeping place easily accessible and consider raising their food and water bowls slightly. Magnetic underlays, coats and collars may be of use. Padded beds that are warm, out of the cold, damp and draught are also of benefit.
