My Furry Valentine!

1st Feb 2019

Let’s not forget our furry friends amongst all the Valentine’s Day hype.

Your pet is your biggest fan and loves you unconditionally.


Chocolate is obviously a bad idea, but there are other ways you and your pet can mark the day.

Do Something They Love

Your pet’s perfect day may involve running laps around the park, or snuggling in front of the telly. Whatever it is they like, do that! 😊

Share Your Love Story

Take a picture that captures the love you feel for each other – see our Facebook photo comp for more details, you may even win a voucher!

Sign Up for a Healthcare Plan

Preventative healthcare is one of the most important things you can do for your pet to keep them healthier for longer. Our Healthcare Club has been set up to enable you to spread the cost of routine preventative healthcare, allowing us to provide you with the support you need to keep your pet fit and healthy year after year.

Go for a Check Up

A visit to the vet shouldn't always be about treatment! We run a series of regular clinics with fully qualified veterinary nurses. All animals vaccinated annually by us are Total Care members. This means that they are entitled to selected FREE nurse consultations, such as; Senior Wellness Clinics, Puppy Parties, nail clipping, stitch removal, feeding and worming advice (and administering), weight clinics, youth clinics and healthcare advice.

Please call 01858 462 839 to book a place.


Valentine's Day Safety Tips for Your Pets

Skip the Candy

Sugar-free sweets and chewing gum often contains large amounts of xylitol, a sweetener that is toxic to pets, especially dogs. If ingested, it may cause vomiting, loss of coordination, seizures, and in severe cases, liver failure.

No Chocolate

Keep all chocolate away from dogs. Chocolate contains theobromine which is extremely toxic – contact your vet if you suspect your dog has eaten any chocolate.

Careful with Flowers

Make sure plants and flowers are kept well out of reach of your pets. Even small amounts ingested may lead to cases of upset stomachs or vomiting, particularly if the plant or flower is toxic. Lilies can be highly toxic to cats, with the ingestion of even small amounts of the plant potentially resulting in kidney failure. Daffodils, crocuses, and tulips can also be dangerous to both cats and dogs.
