FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Feel free to contact us with any of your pet-related questions.
Is it okay to give my dog a bone?
Most RAW bones are edible for dogs. Raw chicken, turkey, lamb, or beef bones are soft enough for your furry friend to chew, eat, and digest. However, there is a risk of choking and tooth damage with bones, so it’s always best to speak to a qualified vet if you’re unsure.
Is it necessary to bring my dog and/or cat in for a yearly comprehensive exam?
Comprehensive examinations are recommended AT LEAST annually to check for health issues that may not be apparent to owners. The vet will examine your pet’s eyes, ears, skin and coat, listen to their heart, and discuss any concerns you may have.
When do I switch from puppy/kitten food to adult food?
Switching a puppy or kitten to adult food too early can cause obesity and gastro-intestinal issues. We recommend switching to adult food between 10-12 months.
How often do I need to bathe my dog?
If no skin condition is present, you can bathe your dog every 4-6 weeks.
Is it necessary to deworm my bird?
Deworming your bird is certainly necessary, just like it is for any other pet.
Can I get fleas from my cat?
Fleas from your pet may bite you, but they will jump off again once they have bitten you as your blood isn’t what they like and you’re probably not hairy enough! Be sure to de-flea your cat regularly to ensure a flea-free home environment.
How can I ensure my guinea pig gets enough Vitamin C?
Guinea pigs do not produce Vitamin C by themselves. The right guinea pig pellets and a vast array of fresh vegetables can help ensure they get enough Vitamin C to live a long & healthy life, but we recommend a supplement in tablet form. Let us recommend the best option for your fluffy friend!
Are woodshavings unsafe for rats?
Rats have a sensitive respiratory tract, so in fact, woodshavings, rather than sawdust, should be used. Our woodshavings are dust-extracted to minimise complications in the respiratory tract of your rat.
