That time of year is upon us again where some pets are terrified at the sound of fireworks.

We cannot highlight enough the importance of having your cat (indoor or outdoor), dog or rabbit microchipped. This is the only way you can be 100% sure of identifying your pet and being reunited with them in the event of them going missing.
As you all know it is now a legal requirement for all dogs to be microchipped however this sadly does not apply to cats or rabbits.
Microchips are still on offer with us until the end of October at a reduced price of £15.00 – a small price to pay for being re-united with your beloved pet.
Please contact us on 01224 486444 to take advantage of this offer or if there is any further information you require.
