"CARE FOR YOUR PETS"
Could your pet have diabetes?
Over 300 million people worldwide have been
diagnosed with diabetes. Diabetes is also
becoming diagnosed more often in our pets.
What is diabetes?
• Glucose is essential for many functions in the
body, and circulates through the blood to
provide the organs with fuel
• Insulin drives glucose from the blood into
cells. Without it, the glucose stays in the
bloodstream and isn't used effectively
• Without enough glucose to fuel them, the
cells think they are star ving and tell the
rest of the body they are starving
What signs should I look for?
• Excessive thirst
• Excessive urination
• Behaviour or personality change
• Weight loss with ravenous appetite OR
What does diabetes mean for my pet?
• With appropriate modification to diet and
lifestyle, diabetes can be managed long term
• In some cases, daily insulin injections are
needed. These are tolerated well, and
owners learn to deal with these injections
• Life-long monitoring of blood glucose levels
and insulin dose is needed

New music from Golden Curtain
By CLAIRE HAMLIN
Tribute: Golden Curtain, from left, Andrew
Gladstone, Andrew McKenzie and Matt
A phrase often used by the late Ian Mor-
ris has evolved into the name of Napier
band Golden Curtain, who will support
The Checks at The Cabana on Thursday
Referring to the part of the song --
whether it be the chorus or the ending --
that is the finest, Morris described it as
the bit where you open the golden cur-
We had to come up with a name quite
quickly and we thought that it wasn't the
worst band name ever, so we went with
it,'' smiles drummer Andrew Gladstone.
We feel it's great that there is a story
behind the name and it's a tribute to Ian
Gladstone, formerly of Garageland and
one third of Devils Elbow, formed the
band with Andrew McKenzie (Grand
Prix) and Naked Gun's Matt Baker,
purely for enjoyment'' but they are work-
ing so well together that an EP is defi-
nitely in the works.
Songwriting is a real collaborative
effort and we play pretty much all new
material,'' says McKenzie.
As difficult as it is to put musical styles
in a box, Golden Curtain describe their
sound as indie-rock with pop and soul
It's more pop than anything I've done
before but, having said that, I'm really
liking these songs,'' McKenzie says.
In some ways our music reminds me of
early Flying Nun stuff, melodic and
slightly jangly,'' Gladstone remarks.
People who come to the gig will hear
brand-new songs -- and a live audience is
the best way to road-test them. It's not
experimental but by the same token it's
probably not all that commercial either.
That's okay though, we're not aiming at
that, we're just making music that we
