8 Top Tips for a Feline-Friendly Veterinary Visit

For most cats and their owners, a trip to the vet is a stressful event. Here are some tips to help make it a more tolerable, even pleasant, occasion.

A Flea-ting Moment!

Thankfully, ridding your pet of fleas is a lot easier than it used to be and there is now a large range of 'state of the art' products available which are effective and safe.

Allergic Dermatitis (Atopy) In Pets

Atopy or Atopic Dermatitis is one of the most common forms of allergic skin disease in dogs, brought on by seasonal pollen and other airborne allergens.While humans tend to get hay fever, dogs present with itchy skin or ear problems. Cats may suffer from the condition, too.

Anal Gland Disease and Its Treatment

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.

Arthritis In Dogs and Cats

Does your pet struggle to get up in the morning, hobble around or do they have trouble with stairs or jumping into the car? Arthritis can be a real pain in the neck (or hip) but there is treatment available to help your creaky pet.

If there is one message that owners miss more than any other it is when a dog or cat is feeling pain. A frequently under-recognised, pain-inducing condition in dogs and cats is osteoarthritis.

Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome in Dogs and Cats

Brachycephalic Airway Syndrome is defined as partial blockage of airflow through the upper respiratory tract. It is seen more frequently in animals with typical brachycephalic ("pug-nosed") conformation, for example Bulldogs, Pugs and Persian cats.

Cagey Cats -  Confining Cats in Comfort

Is your cat being belted up by the local moggie? Do you live near a main road, or have problems with your cat attacking the local wildlife? Well, the solution to all of the above could be to confine your cat to your house or yard.

Canine Cognitive Dysfunction

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.

Caring For Your New Kitten

Don't forget that your adorable bundle of fluff is totally dependent on you to provide for its well-being.
