Saying no to puppy dog eyes is something which most pet parents struggle with particularly when it is as easy as giving them a little scrap off your plate. Unfortunately treating your dog with your dinner is not only encouraging begging behaviour it also is simply not good for them and can in fact cause harm.
Deciding on whether to have your pet de-sexed or not is a question we get asked a lot. At Animates Vetcare we recommend that all pets be de-sexed. Not only are there are a number of health benefits by having your pet de-sexed, it also decreases the number of unwanted puppies and kittens that find themselves homeless or in shelters across New Zealand.
As pet parents we love to enjoy the warm weather with our pets. However, summer can bring unique risks to their health. The Animates Vetcare team have compiled a list of common hazards you might see during summer and safety tips to help keep your pet safe, comfortable, and carefree this summer.
