It raises funds for the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind's (RNZFB's) Guide Dog Services. RNZFB guide dogs provide hundreds of blind and partially sighted New Zealanders with the means and confidence to get around independently and safely,'' RNZFB chief executive Sandra Budd says. It's a long process to become a RNZFB guide dog as every puppy must train for two years, pass 55 different tests and walk thou- sands of steps. With no Govern- ment funding for Guide Dog Services, we rely on public sup- port. Every dollar collected during our appeal really counts, which is why we need as many volunteers as possible out there rattling buckets on street corners,'' Ms Budd says. Red Puppy Appeal collectors will be on the streets on Friday April 1 and Saturday April 2 and anyone wanting to volunteer can call 0800 120 254 or register online at www.redpuppy .org.nz. You can donate online at www.redpuppy.org.nz Please give generously when you see RNZFB Red Puppy Appeal collectors out and about from April 1 to 3. Your dog will thank you! Did you know your fam- ily dog has over 200 joints in his body? For optimum comfort and soundness, joints need to be supple and lubricated. LubriSyn is a liquid oral joint supplement made of hyaluronan (HA), a naturally occur- ring part of normal joint fluid. Put in simple terms, LubriSyn is a patented oral form of HA, admin- istered daily. Because LubriSyn is a gel, with no strong smell or taste, it is very readily taken when dropped on top of your dog's normal meal. As our dogs get older, like all of us, age catches up and your once bounc- ing puppy slowly becomes less active, and may become stiff and arthritic. There are many ways in which we can help during the ageing pro- cess, firstly of course by ensuring optimum weight and fitness is maintained, and adding a joint supplement to the diet may also be ben- eficial. LubriSyn is also the secret of many of New Zealand's racehorse and sporthorse trainers, and is now available over the counter for dogs as well. LubriSyn is available locally from Swanson Road Vet Clinic, phone 833-7794.
