Our chosen pet food for cats and dogs at this hospital is Royal Canin. Why? Over the past 5 years we have found that it is not only the most palatable for our canine and feline patients but also meet the nutritional requirements for all lifestyle stages.
We like the fact that when formulating their diets Royal Canin also takes into account a variety of factors from age, activity and breed to the size and lifestyle of each pet.
If you think about it there is a big difference in the nutritional requirments between a large labrador weighing 35kg and a yorkshire terrier weighing 4.5kg. We now stock Royal canin for a variety of breeds from cavalier king charles, shih tzus, labradors and german shepherds.
Royal canin also takes into account not just the age of the cat but they also have special diets geared directly for neutered cats. Neutered male cats for example have a higher tendency to getting fat and developing bladder stones which can cause a fatal blocked bladder. With the Royal Canin Neutered male diet these risk factors are considerably decreased.
Oxbow products for Rabbits and rodents
Rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas and degus are herbivores and need fibre daily in their diet to prevent dental and digestive problems. At this practice we provide this in two ways – via pellet foods ( ‘muesli’ type foods do not provide sufficient fibre) and from a selection of high quality hay products.
We recommend you buy good quality hay to put in a hay rack for your pet to eat. Rabbits are true gourmets and have more taste buds then humans and cats! At this practice we stock five flavours of hay to titillate their fussy palates!!

Oxbow Herbivore Critical Care
For sick, underweight or convalescing small herbivores we also stock the famous Oxbow Herbivore Critical care mix. This comes in a resealable sachet and once mixed with water is like a liquid hay – every mouthful given by a syringe provides all the calories, fibre and vitamins that a sick rodent or rabbit needs. This liquid food has saved countless rabbits and guinea pigs’ lives.
