The health of our dogs and cats is sometimes compromised by bacteria, viruses and parasites which cause diseases such as kennel cough, tick fever, FIV, FeLV and cat flu. We can help prevent infectious diseases through vaccinations, parasite-control and good hygiene. Early detection and treatment give our animals the best chances of recovery.

Learn some tips on bonding with our pocket pets as well as the benefits of sterilisation to prevent certain medical and behavioural issues.

Skin problems can be challenging to diagnose, treat or manage. We share about the diagnostic tests and treatments available for animals suffering from skin conditions such as allergies, fungal infections, maggot wounds and hot spots. Some skin problems can also be caused by medical conditions such as hypothyroidism or hyperadrenocorticism.
