By registering with them, pets can benefit from free dental checks and diet and advice to name just a few complimentary services. They also hold weekly puppy parties so to encourage fun socialising for the new canine members of the family.

They understand cost can be a concern when taking care of a pet, that is why they offer a range of special offers to help keep prices down. For example, our client has a popular kitten and puppy plans where for an affordable one-off payment, their first and second-year vaccinations, microchipping and initial worm and flea treatments will all be included.

In addition to all of this, they also think it’s crucial to work in partnership with their other loyal clients so that together, they can decide on the best way to care for each pet as an individual.
