The importance of maintaining dental hygiene

Did you know that 80% of dogs and 70% of cats are likely to develop dental disease by age three?

Dental health issues in pets typically remain undiagnosed and untreated for a long time. Unhealthy gums and teeth can affect your pet’s overall health and can cause serious issues in your pet’s heart, liver and kidneys.

It's important to understand the symptoms and types of dental disease and how to take care of your pets' dental hygiene.  Read more

Is your dog overweight?

Obesity is one of the major causes of serious long-term illness in dogs and needs to be taken seriously. 

The good news is that you can manage your dog’s weight - it is believed that 95% of obesity cases can be corrected by controlling your dog’s diet and exercise regime.

In this article, we share helpful tips and advice for helping keep your dog in good shape.  Read more 

Understanding FLUTD, a common cat health issue

Feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) is the most common lower urinary tract disorder of domestic cats and one of the most common health concerns of cat owners. 

FLUTD can affect cats of any age and either gender. However, male cats are generally more prone to urethral blockages because of their narrower urethras.   Read more

Puppy training - setting clear rules

The basics of puppy training include deciding what rules your puppy needs to follow, where it is allowed to go and the commands you wish to use. Make sure that you set clear rules so that everybody involved in raising the puppy will know exactly what pup is or is not allowed to do. 

In this article we share tips for how to set (and stick to) rules, and teach your puppy commands.  Read more

Ensure you're protected against unexpected vet bills

Unfortunately, no matter how well you look after them, most pets will require veterinary treatment at some stage. And if there is a bill, you have to foot it…all of it, which can quickly amount to thousands of dollars.

Pet Insurance is a way to protect both you and your pet from unexpected vet bills. There is no need for them to suffer if veterinary care is too pricey, and no difficult decisions for you to make other than getting them the care they deserve.
