Ahhh... the leaves have fallen, the extra blanket is on the bed, thongs have been swapped for shoes and socks and you're just about to lean back with your hot cuppa, and that's when you hear it. It's a barely audible sound, but its persistent, there it goes again.. and again.. its getting closer.... and just as you're on high alert, in comes your best mate "Freckles". She is a mixed breed pooch who has been a part of your family for perhaps around 7 years or maybe its now 10 years? You become aware that somewhere along the way, weeks turned into months that then became years.... and now as dear old (and sometimes slightly pongy!) Rover sits with you the realisation creeps in that those creaking sounds weren't the door that needs a spray of WD40, it was in fact "Freckles" aging joints.
Now realistically we know we've taken some liberties in our story, we know you don't hear joints creaking quite like that but - if you could, wouldn't it be a handy reminder to get your pet “WD40'd? OK.. there we go again with our fanciful story telling.. obviously we don't spray pets with lubricant spray!
So lets cut straight to the chase, when was the last time you looked at your pet...we mean really looked at your pet. Not taking a glance over to check that your pooch is in the corner with his usual chew toy and that the cat is in her favourite sleeping spot. We mean taking a moment out from the daily grind to look, and assess where you think your pet is at in terms of their health and lifestyle.
With our pets aging so much faster than us, its easy to forget that the years really do fly by, and before you know it - that cute little bundle of fluff is now hitting their senior silver whisker years.
With the weather turning, now is the best possible time to ensure that your pet (whether they be dog, cat, rabbit or even something else!) is ready for the cooler months ahead.
We're confident that you'll be pleasantly surprised by the abundance of options and suggestions that we can share with you to increase your furry friends health and lifestyle during these colder months. Our idea's are tailored to your pets individual needs and might include simple changes to your home environment allowing for easier mobility access, or perhaps an easy to feed speciality diet for mobility improvement or possibly even medication.
We would love for you to come in and see us, or call us to discuss what we can suggest for your furry family members.
