Summer Tips For Dogs
While, being heat lovers, cats are often found basking in the warmest spot in the house, it is important to remember that they can suffer from heat stroke if they find that they can’t cool down.

Diabetes In Dogs
It is estimated that 1 out of every 100 dogs that reaches 12 years of age will develop diabetes. Diabetes mellitus, the most common form of diabetes, is caused by a problem with the production of a hormone called insulin.
Guarding food, or any resource such as toys or a sleeping space, is a natural reaction. In a ‘wild’ situation, these resources can run out or be stolen, and therefore need to be protected. Teaching our dogs that their resources are safe is important, as guarding behaviour can become aggressive and difficult to control if left unmanaged.
