Vets call for urgent climate action to protect flood-affected animals

Veterinarians for Climate Action are calling for urgent climate action to protect the animals impacted by the flooding in NSW and Qld this week.

Angela Frimberger, VfCA director and veterinarian residing in Port Macquarie, was quoted; "“The impact of the bushfires and now the floods on our local pets, livestock and wildlife has been devastating. We are hearing horrific stories from cattle washed out to sea, to horses swept away from paddocks and pets trapped in homes as floodwaters rise. It breaks my heart to imagine the terror these creatures must be feeling."
