Best Friends, The Best in Pet Care

To give your kitten the best start in life, play with them, handle them gently and spend as much time with them as you can.

To make their life as comfortable as possible, you'll need a few basic items:

•    a warm, draught-free, cat bed, igloo or basket, lined with warm soft bedding
•    two unbreakable bowls for food and water
•    premium kitten food
•    cat litter, litter tray & litter scoop
•    a light collar (and lead if you're considering walking your kitten)
•    an identification tag for name and phone number

Vaccinating and Desexing Your Puppy

Vaccination

Puppies are vulnerable to illness as their immune system develops, so vaccination is a must. The recommended vaccination schedule for puppies starts at 6-8 weeks of age. There are then one or two booster vaccinations in subsequent weeks.

The vets at Best Friends recommend annual booster vaccinations to provide the best protection throughout the life of your dog.

vet appointment
  1. Write down a list of questions before you go in to make sure you find out everything you need to know.
  2. Bring in any vaccination cards and previous vet documentation for your pet. Don't worry if you don't have them, we can look them up for you.
  3. If your pet is jittery in the consulting room, stay calm and your pet will begin to realise that there is nothing to fear
  4. Take note of your pet's eating and drinking habits for a week before the appointment.

As the weather finally warms up and daylight hours increase, your pet will start losing their Winter coat. Shedding hair is a natural process for most dog & cat breeds and occurs throughout the year, but especially in Spring and Summer. 

With a little extra attention to brushing and combing, you can save your house from masses of loose hair around the place and mats building up as your pet’s Winter coat moults.  Plus grooming your cat or dog is a healthy habit as it can be a great time to bond with your pet and check for other wellbeing requirements.

Pets need regular flea and worming treatments.

Fleas

 

Fish make wonderful pets, and a beautiful addition to any home.  They are quiet, won’t dig up or mess your garden, and much easier to care for than you might think!  

Try following our 6 steps to success, and you will enjoy many years of happy aquarium keeping.
