Appetites do vary between dogs but if your dog’s eating habits have changed it’s often a sign of a problem.
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.
Hand rearing kittens can be very rewarding but is also a big commitment. It involves keeping the kittens warm, regular feeding, toileting, cleaning, health monitoring and socialisation.
Colitis is when the colon gets inflamed. Most dogs get colitis once, recover quickly and never suffer with it again.
Blood in your dog's poo is always something to get checked by your vet but don’t panic - there are lots of possible causes ranging from very minor to more serious.
