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.
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 DISCOUNTED Senior Dog Checks for all dogs over 8…
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…

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 want to raise awareness of a dangerous and often fatal disease in rabbits called “Flystrike”. Rabbits are susceptible to unwanted attention from flies, especially in warmer weather…
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?
