Ultimately we all want our pet to be happy and healthy. On this page we offer advice and tips on the healthcare issues you need to know as the owner of a dog, cat, small animal or reptile.
A happy and healthy pet will love playing, be it small pets running and hiding in tunnels, dogs playing with chews, balls and tugs, cats chasing a laser light, or a hamster running round on its wheel.
Even reptiles such as a bearded dragon will enjoy stimulation from ‘toys’ such as a hideout, a bridge or a laser pointer.
Play is vitally important for your pet’s mental health and for you to interact and bond with your pets.
Interactive toys are designed to mentally stimulate your pets and prevent boredom as they work out how to find the hidden treats.
Treat balls filled with tasty treats encourage exercise as your pets have to move them around to get the treats out. The hole size can be adjusted to vary the difficulty level.
We have lots of toys including interactive toys, treat balls, wood gnaws, climbing frames, wooden houses, platforms, tents, seesaws, natural willow toys, tunnels, hammocks, snuggle pouches, beds and so much more.
It’s not just puppies who can be trained. Dogs are lifelong learners and love to please, so your older dog will be just as willing to take on the challenge if you are patient and keep your expectations realistic.
Come in store and speak to us for advice on various training methods including, reward-based learning, clicker training, toilet training and crate training.
We stock whistles, treat bags, waist bags, muzzles, training leads and lines, harnesses, head collars, pet corrector, clickers and target sticks.
Cats also need to be trained to use a litter tray and cat flap.
Our friendly and knowledgeable team will chat to you about the various methods and aids needed and recommend the most suitable approach for you and your pet.
All pets love to be comfortable when it comes to sleeping and relaxing. Whatever the species, you should create an area for your pet that reflects their specific nesting, heating, climbing, chewing or space needs.
Our dog bed section focuses on high quality, value for money beds. They are built to last and made from quality materials or fillings. Most beds are machine washable and many have removeable covers. Come in store to browse the many beds we have.
If you are getting a new puppy you don’t need to spend a lot of money on a new bed at first as they will chew it and possibly grow out of it. Start with Vetbed which is comfortable and easy to wash and dry.
Cats, reptiles and small animals don’t always choose to use their beds, but it is nice to provide one! Some small animals and reptiles are just happy to burrow down in sawdust, hay or sand.
To keep fish comfortable they need a healthy aquarium. Tap water must be treated and the water filtered. Some species required supplemented heat. There are myriad parasites, diseases and fungi which can affect the water in the tank, and we have a number of disease control products to keep your fish healthy
