That can be really hard for creating a good first impression when from their prospective we do weird things ..read more

Unless you’re a pet breeder, de-sexing your pet is an important part of being a responsible pet owner. De-sexing is sometimes referred to as neutering or sterilisation. This elective procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and involves the surgical removal of the internal reproductive organs. This means the ovaries and uterus for female pets (known as ovariohysterectomy or ‘spey’) or the testicles in male pets (known as castration).

Along with the usual dangers of hot the Hawkes Bay summers, including hot concrete, heat stroke at the beach or river and the infamous barley grass seeds, there are also dangers relating to the festive season that pet owners need to be aware of. Many of the common treats and snacks that we enjoy as part of our holiday celebration can be dangerous to our pets.  Animals digest and metabolise food differently to humans, so what might be perfectly fine for us may be poisonous to them.  As a simple rule, no human food for pets over Christmas, stay mindful of pets when cooking and eating ..read more
