Nutrition Advice

We can advise on any dietary or weight issues your pet may be having, throughout their life.

What do I feed my dog or cat?

This is probably the most important decision you are going to make for your new member of the family.

It is essential to feed the correct diet for the stage of growth your puppy or kitten is at.

We recommend our Vetcomplex life stage diets, and offer a free bag of Vetcomplex Baby Dog Food or Baby Cat Food with your vaccination package.
