For those that don't already know, we have a new recruit! His name is Chester and he is a liver and white Springer Spaniel. He belongs to the owner Martin.

Well.....we had snow! We hope you all enjoyed yourselves and managed to get around ok! We managed to be open Friday and Saturday if not a bit shorter. Bird seed was in demand! Its lovely to see all our local people taking such good care of the wild birds!
In the meantime our deliveries are getting back to normal and we should be back to full stock levels by the end of this week. Sorry to any of you who had their items delayed, we did try our best but mother nature had other ideas!
We have some great offers in store now for March, check out the Special Offer tab of the left habd side of the page.
Spring will soon be on its way!
March 1st 2018
So the snow is coming after all! Make sure you all stay safe! Keep your pets warm and dry. If you are walking your dogs make sure you clean their paws when they return to get rid of any salt or anti freeze that may be on there.
Dont forget to check rabbit and guinea pig bottles for freezing and put in lots of extra bedding if they are outside. If you can put them in a shed or bring them in, even better.
So for now, enjoy the snow and lets see what happens!

Happy New Year! Sorry its a little belated! So whats new for 2018? Well im sure most of you know that we sold our Clevedon store back in September last year so now we only have the two stores: Nailsea and Portishead.
Although we were sad to see the Clevedon store and its staff go, its given us more time to concentrate on bringing you fresh and exciting new products this year. We have started the year well with a little shift around and made some more room for some of our top lines like natural dog treats which are massively growing in popularity.
So far this year weve introduced some new dog treats, cat toys and scratchers and bird feeders to our extensive range. Expect much more to come!
Any ideas for things we should stock? Please fill our our contact form on the website or message our Facebook page!

Are you really giving your dog a Grain Free Diet?
Grain Free dog food is experiencing a massive rise in popularity, and for good reason. People are taking much more of an interest in what they are putting into their pets now and more companies are bringing our high quality Grain Free diets to suit demand.We see a lot of customers buying Grain Free food for their dogs in particular. Grain free diets can help reduce and even eliminate conditions such as flaky and itchy skin, digestive upsets, loose stools and excess excitability.
But What About Your Treat Choice?
Many of the dog treats you see on the shelves will have cereal in them. Most of the well knows bands seen on the TV will contain some kind of cereal. This will counteract all the hard work you are doing with your food.A customer recently came in. They were feeding a high quality Grain Free diet and couldn’t work out why her dog still had red itchy skin. After going through all the common problems: change in washing powder, different plants, new shampoo, we had a look at what treats and extras the dog was given. It transpired the dog was being given mainly cereal based treats. In this case it was Bonio and Markies. After taking these out of the dogs diet, 2 weeks later the customer returned to say what a noticeable difference she has seen in her dog and the redness is nearly completely gone. Now this is not to say every dog wont tolerate cereal. These treats are all suitable for dogs as they wouldn't be able to be sold. BUT if you have a sensitive dog especially if its on a special diet, it’s definitely something to look at. We do an ever expanding range of natural, cereal free treats in our stores. So you can still treat your pet without risk of upsetting their symptoms further.Please pop in and ask if you would like any help with either Grain Free food or Grain Free treats.

Veloxa - Why you need to deworm your dog
Worms are internal parasites that affect all kinds of pet. Most live in the digestive tract, feeding on blood and ingested food. Worms Can cause diseases, be passed to humans, cause discomfort and stress and also have deadly consequences in extreme cases
Your pets can get worms from other infected animals, during pregnancy or via the mothers milk, or via fleas and lice.
You may not see signs of worms in the faeces. This does not mean your dog is clear of worms. Signs of a worm infestation may include:
- bloated tummy and or diarrhoea
- dragging bottom on the floor
- lack of energy
- dull coat
- increased appetite
Some dogs show no symptoms at all which is why routine worming is so important.
Worming treatment is recommended approx every 3 months for dogs. Factors like age and lifestyle may alter this slightly.
Veloxa wormer protects from Roundworm, Tapeworm, Hookworm and Whipworm. Veloxa is beef flavoured and is a chewable tablet. There is a size available for all breeds and ages, please ask a member of staff for details. We just need to know the age and weight of your dog.
As the tapeworm can be ingested by dogs whilst inside a flea it is important to also treat with a spot on for fleas and lice.

your pet, Frontline Plus contains active Insect Growth Regulator technology to
