Summer is finally here! Glorious as it is, don’t you sometimes feel too hot? Well, you wouldn’t be the only one. Our pets can struggle too, especially in heatwaves. So, let’s take a special look at horses today, and how we can help them with overheating through the hot and humid weather.
For many families, fish tend to be the first pet, as they are assumed as an easy animal to look after. Once you begin to look deeper into the care that the fish will require, you may begin to notice that, contrary to belief, it is not true.
Fish can be a big responsibility to have, even though they seem relatively easy to keep. Not only are they beautiful to look at, but they are all unique and serve a different purpose in life and will require attentive and routine care, depending on the type of fish you have.
The flowers are blooming, the days are longer, and the air feels a bit warmer – who doesn’t love spring!? However, it has one downside: tick season has started, and will last until the end of autumn.
That being said, animals can pick up ticks all year round, so it’s always good to be aware of how we can keep our precious pets safe, even outside of tick season.
Did you know that just like humans, animals can suffer from pollen allergies? Summer days are great, but for those with allergies, when the pollen count is high, that means irritation and discomfort for pets with hay fever.

However, it is important that our scaly and hairy friends get the same care our furry friends do when you go away.
Christmas is that magical time of the year when most of us get in the holiday spirit by indulging in seasonal food, enjoying time with friends & family, and decorating the house with festive accessories - usually with the Christmas tree as the star of the show!

Autumn is well and truly here!
As the days get shorter and colder (and we get a little grumpier) heading into winter, there are plenty of new dangers to watch out for in keeping our pets safe when we’re out and about. Whether you let your dog, cat, or another pet outdoors, take note of these warnings.
Veterinary care is advancing quickly with many vets holding certificates in specialist areas that just would not have been the case 10-15 years ago. With this increased knowledge in medical and surgical techniques, pets can be successfully treated for a wide variety of conditions that enable our pets to live longer, healthier lives.
Along with the advancement in specialist vets, come specialist referral centres that are now numerous across the country. As there is no animal NHS service, as pet owners we are responsible for funding their 'private' healthcare which incorporates preventative care, emergency care and ongoing treatment.
