Preventative Health Care

The intelligence of the saying ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’ cannot be argued.

For our pets this means regular grooming to avoid disease of the skin, ears, eyes and paws; dental care using special foods, brushing teeth or routine scaling and polishing; heartworm, flea and parasite prevention; proper nutrition to avoid obesity and nutritional deficiencies; and training and exercise to prevent boredom and behaviour problems. Because we are keenly aware of the special bond you share with your pet, we will spend the time to review all of this and more.

Never leave your pet in a parked car, not even if you crack the windows or park in the shade. On a 22’C day, the car temperature can rise above 66’C in minutes. It is extremely dangerous and the number one cause of heatstroke.
