Pet Advice | Pet Essentials

Kittens love to play, so toys are essential – either home-made, like squashed-up balls of tinfoil, a bunch of feathers tied on to a bit of string, an old ping pong ball, or choose some from your vet or pet shop. Rest area: The position of the rest area changes depending on where the best heat sources are, and your kitten will probably choose to rest near a radiator or in the sun.

Birds | Pet Essentials

Budgies are members of the parrot family and are native to Australia.Budgies enjoy the stimulation of toys and really enjoy human interaction so ensure your budgie gets plenty of attention. They are the most commonly kept birds in captivity and are relatively hardy. Canaries only require a simple canary seed mixture with grit for digestion. The average lifespan of a canary is 10 years. We recommend Versele-Laga Canary Prestige.

Puppies | Pet Essentials

With house training, the key is to identify the place where you want your puppy to go, take him there often, and every time he performs make a huge fuss of him, with praise and treats. Finally, if you take him out for a walk, make sure you keep going after he’s done his stuff – because he needs his exercise and fun just as much as he needs to ‘go’.

The study, Stress Reduction in Children, found that children with a dog present showed lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol than those with a friendly adult present when exposed to mild social stresses. Delegates heard that the same hormone that enables babies to bond with their mothers at birth, also accounts for the power of the emotional connection we form with our pets.
