Chewing is a way for your puppy to explore his world but is also often a result of teething. Between the ages of 2 and 7 months, your puppy loses his baby teeth and they are replaced with his permanent set of adult teeth. Teething puppies can be a big source of frustration for their owners.
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.
All dog and cat owners should ensure they are regularly treating their pet for both fleas and worms.
Fleas are the most widespread external parasite found on pets worldwide. Pets can pick up fleas anywhere – in your yard, home, or at the park - at any time of the year, so it is important to regularly treat your pet and its environment.

The most well-known, and popular cold water fish variety is the Goldfish. These fish have been bred for over 1600 years, first in China and then later (starting about 500 years ago) in Japan. Today there are dozens
of different types. Even though they are different colours and have different body, tail and eye shapes, they are all the one species, Carassius auratus.
