Every mouthful your pet takes should be hard work! Think of what our pets would eat in the wild – chewy, sinewy food that requires ripping, tearing and crunching. This is the natural way and best way to clean the teeth.

We have excellent dry food diets available that are actually designed to clean the tooth as your pet chews. We can also advise you on the best chews and treats available when it comes to dental care. Not every chew on the market is entirely safe for your pet so it’s best to ask us for the guidance.

Cold weather makes arthritis a real pain. Provide your pet with a soft, padded bedding that they can sink their joints in to. Ensure the bed is lifted up off the cold floor and away from draughts, wind and rain. Heated bedding as well as snuggly coats and jackets can make a real difference to your pet's comfort.
