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.
This month we want to raise awareness of potential allergens which can make our pets itchy. If you’ve ever had an itchy insect bite, you’ll know how uncomfortable it can be.
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.
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. As vets, we tend to consider that cats and dogs become senior around the age of 8, but of course our pets are likely to age at different rates and may be affected differently by the ageing process.
We hope you’ve been enjoying the Summer this year! The hot weather brings a few challenges when it comes to keeping our pets happy and healthy…and cool! But it’s also a great time to enjoy spending with our pets… and getting some photos of them too!
Most pet owners will worry if they see a lump or bump on their pet. Not all lumps will be sinister, but it’s always important to get any lump, however small, checked out…
No one really likes to think about the parasites which can feed on our pets. That’s why preventing problems with parasites is also going to be better for our pets than treating them when they arise…
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.
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.
Many pet dental diseases occur below the gum line, where you can’t see. Maybe that’s why dental problems can be missed even by the most observant pet owners…
