Dental Health in Cats

16 Jan 2018

Another way to help keep your feline friend in tip top condition is to have their teeth regularly checked.  Cats are notoriously good at hiding their pain so it may not be that obvious there is anything wrong, and with dental problems in eight out of ten cats over the age of three, it’s something to consider.

Here’s a little video for further information and if you’d like a complimentary dental assessment, please do call our main practice on 01772 639800 or our branch practice in Blackpool on 01253 766352.

Dog Vaccinations The What and the Why

It’s that time of year where we are looking to make some positive changes in our lives, whether it be to start a diet or exercise regime, become more organised or manage our finances better.

When it comes to our pets it can sometimes feel like another thing on the list to do so we want to help.  From 1st January 2018 to 31st March 2018 we are offering you a 25% discount on some of our flea and worming treatments to help save some money AND get organised.

We are also looking to improve access to the information you need to help care for your pet so look out for posts on Instagram, Twitter and You Tube.  We currently have a little video on the flea lifecycle on our YouTube channel which shows why it’s important to regularly treat your pet to keep on top of this parasite.

If there’s anything you would like to see then let us know as we always welcome ideas from our lovely clients!Flea 1

The Flea Lifecycle

27 Nov 2017

It’s important to understand why, as pet owners, we recommend that you treat your pet regularly for fleas.  It can take a full 12 weeks continuous protection to break the flea lifecycle of any population that is already established.  In order to tackle any new introductions, the treatment protocol must be continued so that you can be sure your pet and home are not affected.  If you can see fleas on your pet then you can be sure that this is only a small percentage of the population (5%).  That leaves a whopping 95% of a flea population that is not visible to the human eye!

Come and speak to our team about how to prevent or treat fleas and the best way to tackle the issue.

Dental Care

24 Nov 2017

Just like humans, our pet’s teeth are at risk of decay and can cause them difficulties with eating and drinking.  It can also be quite a smelly experience for the owners with the bad breath that usually accompanies poor dental health.  Our pets are great at hiding pain from us so it’s not alway obvious that there’s a problem.  Click on the link below to find out more about what to look out for and how you can help your pet maintain good oral hygiene.       Dental Care Brochure

Winter Hazards!

15 Nov 2017

It’s well and truly Autumn and the colder weather is settling in.  A great opportunity to snuggle up with our pets on a dark evening or experience the beautiful sunrises we have in the Fylde at this time of year. Either way, with Christmas looming pet owners need to be aware of the potential dangers to our pets from all of that lovely food that will be around as well as other general household products that we use at this time of year to manage our environment and our health.  We want to help you with some useful information to keep them safe and to try and avoid a trip to the vets.
