Will Desexing make my pet fat??

Desexing your pet may result in their metabolism slowing down, however this does not cause weight gain. Weight gain occurs when pets are overfed. There are foods, such as Royal Canin, that have been specially designed for neutered pets to ensure they maintain a healthy weight.

Call us for more information! We are here to help guide and support you and your pet.

Alternatively, head to our website for further information:

Ensure your pet is living the best life Pawsible!

As your pet grows and matures their nutritional requirements change, and it is important to feed them the right diet in order to keep them healthy for as long as possible.

We can help by formulating an individualised diet plan that is specific to the health needs of your fur friend. A prescription diet, such as from the Royal Canin range, is ideal as the food contains extracts and ingredients that have been scientifically proven to target specific health conditions.

Walkies Time!

Does your dog seem more tired than usual after their daily walk?

Arthritis is a painful inflammatory condition which is common in older cats and dogs. Symptoms can worsen over winter, due to the cold weather, and cause our fur friends to become less mobile.

Head over to our website for more information about how to detect and treat arthritis in pets.

Why are blood tests important?

Blood tests help us to diagnose the early stages of age related illness, which may occur before your pet starts to show obvious physical signs of disease. This allows us to start treating these conditions early, in order to manage them effectively and slow down their progression.

For more information about blood tests, give our friendly team a call on 9888 1833.

Is your dog feeling a bit "ruff"?

It is important to take note of subtle changes in an older pet's behaviour, as these observations are key to the early identification of underlying health problems. Changes that may result from age-related illness include:

- Change in appetite
- Discomfort on rising or after exercising
- Weight loss or gain

If you are concerned that your pet is displaying the above behaviours or symptoms, why not come in and see us?
