The best boarding kennels are terrific, and the security of knowing you’re returning to a happy pet that has been well-looked after while you’re away is worth everything. For owners who would rather holiday with their animals then there are more and more options.
Travelling on holiday with your dog.

A very ‘un’ British summer has brought Mediterranean conditions to our shores, and parasites just love them. Extreme heat and humidity make it uncomfortable for the furry members of the family, but itching is discomfort’s cherry on top leaving dogs and cats exhausted and with irritated skin.

Some pets cope better than others with heat but most are sensible and know when to seek out a shady spot.
