Cats have always been the type of pet that adopts you rather than you adopting them. They are self-reliant (until they need to be fed, of course), mischievous and very affectionate... when it suits them!
Whether it be a new collar or lead, a fun toy or cosy bed, here are a few suggestions to help you spoil your favourite feline.
Cats get bored like anyone else! If your cat is a 'party animal' rather than a 'couch slouch', giving him or her things to do apart from ripping flesh from passing human legs will be of immense benefit.
Snake bites are a common cause of death in the warmer months of the year, but they can occur all year round. Make sure your pet doesn't become a victim.
Anal gland disease is a common and distressing condition in pets and often causes 'scooting' behaviour, where a dog or cat drags its derriere along the carpet.
It’s the stuff nightmares are made of. Sadly, it is fact not fiction. Heartworm disease is a silent killer of dogs and cats.
Make sure your kitten has personality plus! Early socialisation has a strong influence on the future behaviour and personality of your kitten.
When cold weather sets in, it is important to take extra care of your pets by helping them stay warm and safe throughout the winter months.
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.
As cats age, their nutritional and health requirements change as their body functions change. Arthritis, dental disease, kidney disease, diabetes and cancer are some of the problems that affect older cats.
Canine Cognitive Dysfunction (CCD) is a dementia-like syndrome that occurs in approximately 12-14% of older dogs more than 10 years of age. It is similar to human Alzheimer's disease.
