Well, we all need to take some time out from work and our animal therapy assistant Basil is no exception! Basil (wearing black fur for those who don't know him) is having a well deserved break over the school holidays and plans to spend a bit of quality time unwinding on the beach; relaxing with his animal family; and partaking in a bit of recreational eating (as you do...?) Basil's looking forward to returning all refreshed in Term Four and meeting new children during physio, speech and occupational therapy sessions. Happy holidays Basil! #animalassistedtherapy #vicpublichealth #yourhealthourcommitment #since1975 ... See MoreSee Less
