Summer, is that you?

October 10, 2018

Day light savings is here and the days are warming up! We have a lot to look forward to and so should our pets.

However,with this warmer weather we see an increased number of uncomfortable skin problems in our pets.

Our pets may become itchy, but they may also have reddened skin, rashes or infections. The causes of these problems can include allergies to pollens, grasses, plants, or even food.

However by far the most common cause of skin irritation in our pets is the dreaded flea. Fleas love warmer weather hence the increase in numbers as we head into summer. The good news is we have many safe and effective treatments for your pets. The key is to treat before you have a problem with a reputable product!

*Not all flea treatments are created equal*

If your pet is still having issues despite having a good flea treatment regime please give us a call on 07 888 8197 so we can help you and them have a happy, relaxing, itch-free summer.

We have a flea treatment text message reminder system here at the clinic. When you purchase any flea treatment in store we will ask you if you would like to be notified when your pet is next due and voila! You will receive a handy reminder text when your pet is next due. SIMPLE!


Buy any Bravecto Flea & Tick Treatment product from our range in October & November and you will automatically go in the draw to WIN a years supply of treatment!


For a limited time only Royal Canin are offering special ‘Scratch & Win’ discounts on all skin diets when you purchase your first bag. Savings of up to 30% can be had if you scratch the right card!

It is a good time to consider a supportive skin diet if your pet is experiencing skin issues.
