Advice

Welcome to our comprehensive guides to care, support, breeding and health of your pets.

We are proud to offer these information pages free to all to aid health and happiness to your pets.

Please use the "drop-down" menu below Pet Advice on our navigation menu to select you pet and find helpful advice and information. All our information sheets are printable as they have been "printer-friendly" coded to remove graphics and web information and can be printed on any home machine to browse and advise you  at your own convenience. Remember, if you are seriously worried about your pet, always call our emergency help line: 01243 842832
