The health and happiness of your canine friend is about more than just feeding them right. With expert advice from our vets, you can provide the best care for your dog at all stages of their life.
Helpful puppy advice
Welcoming a new puppy into your home is an exciting time, but it can also be confusing! We are happy to help with advice on training your new puppy, including toilet training and basic obedience. A health check is important for your new puppy, and we advise on vaccinations, flea control, heartworm treatment and desexing. We also offer puppy preschool classes which are an excellent way to learn about training your dog while encouraging them to socialise in a safe environment.
Advice about caring for your adult dog
As your dog becomes an adult dog, routine health care is still important. Grooming, regular exercise and regular health checks as well as annual vaccinations are all required for adult dogs. Training doesn’t end with puppyhood, and regular training with your dog, whether through an obedience class or one-on-one training will help you and your dog understand each other better.
Advice about looking after your senior dog
As your dog gets older, you may notice changes in their behaviour and health. Older dogs have different dietary requirements, exercise requirements and mental health requirements than younger dogs. There are also many treatments available to help your dog with health problems associated with old age including arthritis, heart disease and dental disease.
