Dogs

The right pet for you?

Dogs make very good friends, are intelligent, faithful and fun.

But they take up a lot of time and energy, are quite expensive to look after and need plenty of space.

A dog is not a good choice for people who are out all day.

 

Companionship - to be with other dogs or people and not to be left alone for too long.
A balanced diet.
A constant supply of fresh, clean water.
A bed and blanket.
A well-fenced garden to play and exercise in.
To be brushed every day, especially if they have long hair.
Help to clean their teeth. They also need to have their teeth checked regularly by the vet.
Regular walks and a lead for walking near traffic or farm animals.
Someone to clean up after them with a pooper-scooper.
Never to be left in a car in warm weather, even with the window open.
A collar and identity tag.
To be properly trained.
To be microchipped.
To be neutered.
To be taken to a vet if they are ill.
Injections to prevent serious diseases.
Worming and regular flea treatments.
To be looked after when you are on holiday.


Remember - a dog needs your time and interest for the rest of its life.


Cats
The right pet for you?

Cats are very clean and make good companions for many people.

But they can damage carpets and furniture with their claws and may not always want to be stroked and handled.
What do cats need?


Companionship - to be with other cats or people for at least part of the day.
A balanced diet - make sure there are no bones in your cat's food.
A constant supply of fresh, clean water.
A garden or safe place to play and exercise every day, away from busy roads.
Somewhere warm and cosy to sleep.
To be brushed regularly, particularly when shedding their coats. Long-haired cats need to be brushed every day.
A scratching post.
Help to clean their teeth. You can brush or rub their teeth with special toothpaste. They also need to have their teeth checked regularly by the vet.
To come and go as they please - a cat flap is ideal.
To be trained to use a litter tray.
To be microchipped in case they get lost.
Cat neutering should be carried out as early as possible in order to avoid unwanted litters. Most cats are sexually mature at six months, but some cats can become pregnant as early as five months. Therefore, the ideal age to neuter your cat is between four and five months.
To be taken to a vet if they are ill or injured.
Injections to prevent certain serious diseases.
Worming and regular flea treatments.
To be looked after when you are away on holiday.

 


Remember - a cat needs your time and interest for the rest of its life.

Visit your horse or pony at least twice a day to feed them.

Remove dropping and wet bedding from the stable, (unless living out).

Regularly grooming of your horse.

Checking for lumps, bumps or bald patches - ask your vet for advice if you are concerned.

Remember - a horse or pony needs your time and interest for the rest of its life.
