Pet Care Tips: Post-operative care for a sterilised pet

Give yourself a pat if you've decided to sterilise your pet (it rhymes!). There are lots more benefits to a sterilised pet than one without as we learnt from last week's video.

As with every surgery, there will be a recovery period. During this time, how should you care for your pet? We hope today's video will be useful in sharing this information with you.

Beat the Monday Blues: Bathtime with doggy!

Last week, we showed you our kitty pals and their antics as they attempted to take a bath. Today, we turn the spotlight on to the dogs, this particular dog, in fact. Don't say we didn't warn you but you're in for a good giggle!

Every pet owner wants the best for their pets. When dogs are out for their walks, they are exposed to germs around them which may cause infection or diseases. By giving your dog a bath, you're not only helping to keep them clean, but healthy as well!

Pet Care Tips: Why you should sterilise your pet

There are a lot of misconceptions about the sterilisation of pets - the animal is going to get fatter, less fun... Some people feel it would be such a joy to see their beloved pets have their own 'family' and that they would share the same happiness.

Sorry to disappoint you but animals don't really need to start families. Moreover, where can the babies go if there are no responsible humans who are willing to take care of them?

Lastly, an unsterilized pet risks getting more critical illnesses such as cancers of the reproductive organs.

We highly encourage that you sterilise your pet. If you have further concerns, please get in touch with your pet's vet to find out more.

Beat the Monday Blues: Bathtime with kitty!

We often hear how cats hates water and trying to bathe them can be such nightmares! Today, we bring you a compilation video of cats who, interestingly, adore being in water!

Part of grooming involves giving pets a bath. Just make sure that the water temperature is not too cold for the cat and blow dry them well after that. As cats are natural groomers (they lick themselves), they don't require as frequent a bath as the dogs. Remember, a pet's hygiene is as important as ours.
