Running is a sport that can be done year-round and enjoyed by young and old alike. Many enjoy it so much that they do end up running every day. However, if you are like me, it’s not always possible to get in those regular runs – my best friend is very demanding, not to mention her smelly breath and flatulence, and insists on going for hour-long walks at least three times per week. ...read more
 

Animal lovers know that if you truly love your pets – and care about animals everywhere – you will have them sterilised.

A seizure is an episode of involuntary muscle contractions of the body’s voluntary muscles (the major muscles responsible for walking and other normal movement).

My tabby cat, Trigger, is 12 years old and has gingivitis. I know this could be from an underlying cause, such as Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV) or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) but, thankfully in his case, he isn’t positive for these. ...read more
 

At work, we have been feeding a local stray dog for the past few months. We’ve called her Mischief and everyone is really fond of her. We’ve raised money to get her spayed and took her to the vet for a check-up. To our shock we were told Mischief has TVT. I had never heard of this before. ...read more
 

Fishy business

24th Oct, 2017
My four Cocker Spaniels (a four-year-old and three seniors over 12 years of age) are all in good to reasonable health and a good, lean weight. They’re on vet-quality food, which they get wet or dry mixed with rice and chicken/mince, and they also get vegetables, fruit, yoghurt and supplements. They get limited treats and I never give them bones. ...read more
