Giardia is a very small parasite that attacks the lining of the guts and causes diarrhoea.
Antifreeze (ethylene glycol) is a very common poison in dogs and cats. It’s a very toxic substance so even a small amount can do a lot of damage to several vital organs.
Vets estimate that nearly half of dogs in the UK are overweight! Being obese puts your dog at risk of health problems, and is likely to reduce how long they live.
Probiotics are friendly bacteria which can be used to ‘top up’ the natural bacteria in your dog’s gut. They can help your dog recover from stomach upsets or longer-term conditions like Colitis.
A heat (or season) is when a female dog is fertile and can become pregnant. During a heat, it’s likely that your dog will behave differently, bleed from her vulva, and become very interested in male dogs.
