Always ensure your pet has a microchip and an identification collar. The microchip cannot be lost and is a reliable means of identification to help us reunite you.
Have our telephone number as well as the number of your regular veterinarian near your phone and programmed on your mobile phone.
Consider pet medical aid insurance. Emergencies and illness can be costly and unexpected. Medical insurance can go a very long way towards carrying these costs on your behalf. Contact us for details of pet health insurance companies. Remember that many home-owners’ insurance policies will also include cover of accidental injuries of pets. Check your policy documentation.
Avoid the use of poisons around the house or make sure they are absolutely not accessible to pets, e.g. rat poison or snail pellets, antifreeze, chocolate, avocado, grapes and raisins.
If your dog is off of a lead when out for a walk, ensure that he or she does not approach other dogs who are on a lead – they are usually on a lead for a reason.
