We recommend Frontline Combo Spot On which provides continuous protection to your dog for 2 months and 1 month for your cat as well as protection for your home.


A tiny microchip is implanted under the skin in the neck of your pet.  Should they stray and be picked up by Dog Warden or brought to a veterinary practice, they will be scanned and the chip's unique 15-digit code will be identified. PetLog’s secure database can then identify your pet as well as your name, address and telephone number so that you can be reunited with your pet again


There are many medical benefits to having your pet neutered and we are happy to neuter your dog or cat from 6 months of age. Your pet is brought in early morning on the day of the operation and is given an examination pre surgery; your pet will be neutered in the morning or early afternoon and will go home later that evening


We strongly recommend Pet insurance. It is important to insure your pet to protect yourself against unforeseen costs and to ensure that your pet can receive the best care available. Policies vary so please ask a member of staff for more information


Puppies and kittens need to be taught what is right and what is wrong. The purchase of a behavioural or training book will help, however we recommend that you take your puppies to puppy classes
