Toxic algae

Already we are seeing reports of toxic algae in the Wellington region, and toxic algae has been implicated in the death of a dog in the Hawkes Bay last week.

Is your dog slowing down?


Of all the body parts of a dog, it’s perhaps the joints more than any other that suffer the most. Years of activity inevitably take their toll, resulting in the slow but steady onset of degenerative joint disease, more commonly known as arthritis.
