In This mail: Spring time - parasite control, rabies day, pet tracking device and shop offers.



Spring is here
Every year we talk about how important parasite control is when Spring comes around and this year is no different. 
We have already had one case of biliary this season and it reminds us how important it is to treat our pets for ticks and fleas. By just giving your dog or cat that tablet or top spot treatment you can literally save your pets life and save you a lot of trouble in trying to get rid of the awful things.



Bravecto tick and flea treatment (it also treats other mites) is available for dogs and cats, in tablet and top-spot form. It is a great long term solution as it lasts at least 3 months and the Bravecto top-spot for dogs lasts even longer (4 months for ticks and 6 months for fleas).


Broadline is a great top-spot solution for hassle free parasite control for your cat as it treats ticks, fleas and worms!


Frontline for dogs and cats is a top-spot for tick and fleas and lasts a month. This is especially great for growing puppies.
A GPS tracking device for your pet!

World Rabies Day

28 September is World Rabies Day
In celebration of this, from 30 September to 4 October we will be offering free rabies vaccinations.
All dogs having their annual health check and 5-in-1 vaccination & all cats having their annual health check and 4-in-one vaccination will get a free rabies vaccine.

 

Rabies is a zoonotic disease (a disease that is transmitted from animals to humans), caused by the rabies virus. Domestic dogs are the most common reservoir of the virus, with more than 99% of human deaths caused by dog-mediated rabies.

The virus is transmitted in the saliva of rabid animals and generally enters the body via saliva from a rabid animal into a wound (e.g. scratches), or by direct exposure of mucosal surfaces to saliva from an infected animal (e.g. bites). The virus cannot infiltrate intact skin. Once the virus reaches the brain, it further replicates, resulting in presentation of clinical signs from the patient. .

With the exception of Antarctica, rabies is endemic on all continents. Of the tens of thousands of deaths occurring annually due to rabies, 95% of cases are reported in Asia and Africa.

Rabies is an untreatable, fatal disease but is completely preventable by vaccination.
