At least that’s what a lot of people say to themselves! But what about your pets? Do they feel the same as us about diet and exercise?
Christmas is a time for celebration… not a time when you want an unexpected trip to the vets! It’s important to remember that Christmas can create additional hazards for our pets. So here’s some top tips to stay safe this Christmas.
Our pets can’t understand what fireworks are about. To them, the loud noises and bright flashes are scary and unexpected and our pets often want to escape from what is a high-stress situation for them.
It’s senior dog month so we thought we’d share with you some tips and advice to help you care for your older dog. Plus we have FREE Senior Dog Checks for all dogs over 8! Along with discounts on blood testing, urinalysis, and senior dog diets where recommended.
Research has shown that pet owners are healthier than those without an animal companion! Dog owners in particular tend to lead active lifestyles with plenty of miles covered on those daily walks. But it’s not just dog walkers who stay healthy. Our other furry friends help us to look after ourselves too.
On average, cats spend 2/3 of every day sleeping. That means a nine-year-old cat has been awake for only three years of its life! And cats tend to sleep more as they get older…
The Summer holidays are here at last! They can often bring with them a change in routine for us and our pets. Holidays are booked, children are off school and more time spent is usually spent around the home. It’s a time for fun and relaxation, but for some pets it can cause extra stress and worry.
We’ve all got our fingers crossed for some more good weather over the next few months! If the skies are kind to us, why not take the opportunity to give your pets’ bedding a spring clean!
As part of Rabbit and Guinea pig month, we want to raise awareness of a dangerous and often fatal condition called “Flystrike”.
With the early May bank holiday weather still fresh in our minds, it’s safe to say that Spring has sprung! We’re all hoping that there’ll be plenty more nice weather over the next few weeks and months, but what do our pets think of the warmer weather?
We’re proud to be a Local Vets approved practice. It shows we’re totally committed to staying independently owned and will always be here to serve our local community of pets and their owners.
