This month we’re talking about the health of older pets. Here are a few things to think about if you have an older pet.

Mobility Month in May…

It’s Mobility Month during May and we’ll be helping to keep your pets on the move! Pets of all ages can benefit from a mobility check to make sure they keep on moving, and the right diet and exercise program can make all the difference. That’s why we’re offering FREE Mobility Checks throughout May plus 15% OFF Joint Supplements.

Vaccination Offer

If your pets have fallen behind on their vaccinations, you can get them protected again at a discounted price. Our Boost and Protect Offer is running throughout April and you can take advantage of discounted vaccination prices. Plus you’ll get a full health check from Duncan.
