Take Care Australia 🇦🇺 This beautiful country is home to many animals that I had never seen before until coming here almost 3 years ago.
It is so sad to see the Bushfires affecting so many people and animals.
Several areas of the country are affected by heavy smoke making air quality very poor. If you are affected be sure to spend more time indoors with the air conditioning on and avoid any vigorous outdoor activity. If you do need to go outside invest in a disposable P2 face mask. These are able to filter out very fine particles from the air when used correctly and can be brought from your local hardware store.
If you suffer from respiratory problems please see your local GP for medication and an action plan.
As many of my Australian patients say “Australia only does things in extremes” and I hope that this extreme is over soon. My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.
Koalas share exactly the same fingerprints as humans. However, what we don’t have in common is how we keep hydrated. Our adorable friends keep themselves hydrated by eating a lot of eucalyptus leaves and as humans we rely on a number of other sources.
So, as the weather heats up don’t forget to keep a water bottle with you and drink plenty of water throughout the day.
