“Our pets are like family to us”….I disagree! My pets ARE my family - and that means that, when they need extra medical support to stay healthy, to live a long life, and to be comfortable, I’m willing to give them that support.   Veterinary medicine advances have meant that many illnesses and conditions that previously were debilitating or life-ending can now be treated. Because of this, your pet may have been prescribed a drug by your vet to support them through an illness, or to overcome a chronic condition, like arthritis, diabetes or heart failure. And whilst these drugs can have inc ..read more
