Our January Pet Blood Bank event

We hosted another Pet Blood Bank event on Sunday 10th January. These events help to save the lives of dogs who need a blood transfusion as a result of medical treatment, illness or injury.

January is National Walk Your Dog Month

If you’re a dog owner, you’ll know that every month is walk your dog month; our canine friends need regular exercise all year round! But during January – with the enjoyment of Christmas a distant memory, the cold weather continuing, and those dreaded January blues to deal with – it can be tempting to put off walking your dog. Walking your dog can bring benefits for both of you, which can be especially important in January, so our advice is to embrace this time of year.

Exercising your pet in the house during colder months

As the weather gets colder, you and your pet may be spending more time indoors on the sofa. The lack of exercise can have a negative impact on the physical and mental wellbeing of both you and your pet. With ongoing limitations to outdoor activities because of COVID-19, knowing how to keep your pet fit at home could help keep them healthy and happy.
