Pets, a bit like children (or mine anyway) are a bit naughty sometimes but you can’t help loving them anyway. Unlike the kids, at least our four-legged family members can’t nag us for the latest toys but we like to spoil them anyway and make sure that they get the nutrition they need and the care and attention that they want.
For many people, pets offer company, unconditional love, and security, plus they can often tell when we are feeling sad or unwell. Our pets are part of the family and we want them to be happy and comfortable too.
Keeping our pets healthy is an important way to keep them happy and that means taking care of their needs. The right food is just one aspect, with many animals requring regular grooming to keep their coats in good condition and their claws the right length.
Lots of smaller animals like guinea pigs and other rodents need the right bedding and something to gnaw on too to keep their teeth in-check and the right length for eating.
Whoever your chosen companion is, your local petshop is a great place to go for all your supplies and to get expert advice.
Most Pet stores and the pet departments in garden centres offer advice for new and existing pet owners as well as selling a wide range of products to keep our animal friends happy and healthy.
Make sure that you are well prepared and well stocked for years of companionship with your furry, scaled or feathered friends.
