What your pet eats is very important. Even more so if we have diagnosed a particular disease. Arg Beiyn recommends Hills Pet Food to all our clients whether for their normal diet or for presciption diets. Their website has a lot more information on this subject.
Worming and de-fleaing your pet regularly is very important. There is more information about this subject on our Flea and Worming page in our pet advice section. However, there is a site you can register with that will remind you when your pets are due for flea control.
We highly recommend getting pet insurance for your pet. Veterinary medicine can provide a lot for your pet now, but the bills can soon mount up. Please read the small print carefully when purchasing insurance and make sure you understand what you are covered for. We recommend Petplan, click here for a quote.
