We are a nation of animal lover and most homes in the United Kingdom have some kind of pet. The two most popular pets in the UK are the dog and the cat, in that order. They are great companions and we treat them pretty much, like members of the family.
Much like other members of the family, they are going to get sick and so you need to take steps to take care of them and they can get sick at any time. Thankfully, if they do get sick after regular business hours, there are emergency vets in Gloucester that can help you. Vets offer many services within business hours as well.
- Our animals get up to all sorts of things when we are not looking and as well as breaking our things, they can also break bones. Your vet will be on hand to set the bone and give the necessary medicine so that your dog is feeling better soon.
- Fleas and ticks can be a real issue at certain times of the year. Ticks can be very dangerous for your animal and they are also a danger to you. The local vet has many methods to get rid of these pests using injections or powders.
- Sometimes, your pets have disagreements with each other and this can result in biting and scratching. These wounds need attention before they get infected and so a trip to your local vet would be a wise move on your part.
If your animals are not themselves, get them down to the local vet and see how they can help. A happy pet is a good pet.
