Month 2 already and we are sure it will be punctuated with muddy paws, cold noses, and maybe foot-prints in the snow!
We are still seeing a lot of problems with fleas (warm winter). They feed on your pets (yes, they eat blood), mate, and then the female lays hundreds of eggs. The eggs hatch, larvae emerge, they grub about in the carpets, eventually pupate, then we get a mass emergence of adult fleas right about now. If this happens to you remember that it is important to treat the house e.g. with our Indorex Spray, but regular preventive treatments for your pets is essential. See more about fleas here.
Later next year it becomes compulsory for cats to to be microchipped (already the case for dogs). We offer high quality microchips for £15 – please contact us to arrange an appointment with the nurse to have a chip fitted. It also means if your pet goes missing and is found, you can quickly be reunited.
Did you know we have a Pet Care Plan for Dogs, Cats, Puppies, Kittens and Rabbits, with monthly instalments for all preventive health needs for all pets, and a set of discounts on services and products. Please enquire.
