What to do in an emergency

You know we’re here for you and your pets whether you have a routine query or a blue light emergency. Whilst we all hope that our pets will never be taken seriously ill, or involved in an accident, it’s worth being prepared in case the worst should happen.

On average, cats spend 2/3 of every day sleeping. That means a nine-year-old cat has been awake for only three years of its life! And cats tend to sleep more as they get older…

Enter our Summer Photo Competition!

We hope you’ve been enjoying the Summer this year! The hot weather brings a few challenges when it comes to keeping our pets happy and healthy…and cool! But it’s also a great time to enjoy spending with our pets… and getting some photos of them too!
