Attention cat owners! Don’t be tempted to wash your cat in a flea shampoo as these are almost always pyrethrin-based and are POISONOUS TO CATS. Also - be aware that dogs bathed in pyrethrin shampoos can be a source of poison for your cat if she licks and grooms your dog. Ask us for the best flea prevention and treatment for your pets.

Can you believe it - we are entering snake bite season again! Long grass around dams and rivers are great spots for snakes to hide so keep your eyes peeled. Signs of snake bite include dilated pupils, weakness, collapse and red urine. Call us IMMEDIATELY if you suspect your pet has been bitten by a snake.

It’s time for a spring clean! When it comes to bathing your dog choosing the correct shampoo is very important. Don’t be tempted to use human shampoo (even baby shampoo) as it’s the wrong pH for your pooch. If your dog is itchy, oily or has sensitive skin we can recommend the most suitable shampoo.
