It can get pretty lonely once the children grow up and many of us empty nesters rely heavily on our pets for company. But we don’t want to replace the children. The best pets for seniors are easy to care for and good company. And of all of the breeds of dog, the whippet is by far the least time consuming and easiest of the lot.

As vets we often see dogs with injuries caused by another dog in the household. We can patch up the results of the fight. But owners don’t think to ask how to stop dogs fighting at home in the first place. Often we treat the injury and then have to send the animal home into the same high-risk environment. Which isn’t good for the dog or you. At Pet Medical we aim to address the underlying cause of these disagreements so that they are not repeated.

Pets and children don’t always mix, and as a society we spend a lot of time discussing the safety of children around pets. But what about poor pet?  Children can be pretty ‘pet-unfriendly’, from leaving the gate open to shoving items where they should not go. There is no doubt that children can pose a danger to pets. They lack a sense of boundaries and the consequences of their actions. They have a fascination with putting objects on (and in) things, especially body parts and they can’t to seem put ANYTHING away or back the way they found it.
