Spring Feeding Horses

Too fat, too thin: how is your horse looking after the winter months? Condition scoring is an ideal way to assess your horse's weight and make any changes to the diet if needed.

Caring for Wild Baby Birds

It's not unusual to find a baby bird on the ground in spring and summer. People trained in bird care have the best chance of rehabilitating the bird and allowing it to return to the wild, so don’t attempt to do it by yourself.

Feeding Your Guinea Pig

Guinea Pigs (or Cavies) are cute little creatures but they are not easy to feed correctly. The main reason is that guinea pigs are the only species, apart from humans, who require Vitamin C included in their diet.

Constipation in Dogs

Is your dog having trouble doing their 'twos'? If they are showing pain while straining, and is passing either small amounts or no faeces at all then they could be constipated and will need your help!

Socialising Your Kitten

Make sure your kitten has personality plus! Early socialisation has a strong influence on the future behaviour and personality of your kitten.

Early puppy training can give puppies the best possible start in life. Puppy classes provide the building blocks towards social development and future well-being and are aimed at puppies aged 8 to 16 weeks. This timeframe takes advantage of an important developmental period known as the Critical Period for Socialisation.

The "gold standard" for home care is daily brushing of your pet’s teeth using an abrasive toothpaste, as it is essential to mechanically remove plaque build-up.
