Allergies in pets are not dissimilar to allergies in humans, meaning there are plenty of ways to treat them and manage them.  Along with the start of warmer weather in Spring comes the increased pollen count which causes allergies. Spring is the time of growth, flowering and new sprouts for plants and flowers which causes the increased pollen count. Pollen is spread all around so it’s hard to avoid – it’s a tiny grain that gets carried by bees, wind, insects, and animals. Its extensive presence and size means it gets into every nook and cranny just like dust can. This means it’s constantl ..read more

Mad Paws » Cats
by Emily Heuston

Destructive behaviours in pets are a nightmare, but the reality is that a change in environment is likely going to cause a behaviour change. This means we can’t always expect a pet to behave as they normally do. A change in environment is unavoidable as a Pet Sitter – the owner leaving, a location change, other pets being present, or a change in routine are all going to impact how the pet behaves. The good news is there are plenty of ways to prevent and manage destructive behaviours, for cats and dogs. Why do pets show destructive behaviours?
