Transport Crates - What You Need To Know About Transport Crates

July 16th, 2019 |      0 comments

Who doesn’t love going on long trips? And what’s better than going on a long trip than being with family or friends? What about pets? Pets love going on trips too you know, especially if it’s a trip with their favourite hoomans.


  But pets, unlike humans, need to be handled differently when going on trips. Their anatomical structure isn’t the same as ours, so their safety on long trips are compromised when not properly buckled in. 


  The best thing to do is to secure them inside a proper transport crate. Transport crates are usually made of high-grade plastic that can withstand impacts. These are also designed to keep your pet safe within its confines without making it feel claustrophobic.



Caring For Senior Pets

July 16th, 2019 |      0 comments

One sad reality in life is that everyone, everything gets old. Yes, our pets will grow old and they age faster than us. In comparison, a year in a dog’s life is equivalent to 7 of ours. They reach maturity faster and therefore become senior animals earlier than us human beings.


 The best we can do is make sure that we care for our pets from a young age to their twilight years. 


 Like us, as our pets get older, they also show signs of becoming vulnerable to injuries, diseases and the effects of fatigue. 


  Cats & dogs are usually considered geriatric at the age of 7. The breed, genetics, nutrition and environmental influences will play a part in the ageing process so it isn’t exactly the same for all types of pets.

Watching fish swimming for an hour a day saves lives.

Keeping an aquarium full of fish and spending an hour or two just watching them swim can lower the risk of heart attacks. Most fish owners swear that they feel calmer, more tranquil after sitting in front of their aquarium to watch their pets go about their lives underwater.

What’s So Great About Great Danes?

The Apollo of dogs. Gentle Giants. The Biggest Canine Clowns. Oversized Lapdogs. These are just a few of the endearing names attached to these magnificent dogs.

Great Danes are very friendly and even-tempered. They weren’t so back in the day when they were used as Guard Dogs in large estates and tracts of land. 

You’d think that a dog as large as a Great Dane would require humongous amounts of care, right? Not so.
