Care of the Geriatric dog by Joanna Reber (VN, Cert AAB)

Treatment and Care for the Geriatric Dog
I have something I want to share with all of our fantastic clients and hopefully their friends and family about a wonderful discovery I have recently made.

My old and very faithful best friend Finn just celebrated his 13th birthday. He is a wonderful black Labrador.

I truly believe we would not have reached this milestone had it not been for the specialised care of a great team of people.


Our articles in Sussex Life Magazine

We are very excited about writing some articles for Sussex Life magazine. For their February edition we wrote about Rabbits and gave great tips on how to care for them properly. March’s edition is a double page spread on how to manage multi cat households as well as how to meet the needs of cats on their own.

Henry the stuffed stooge dog!

We have another new member of the Pet-Professionals team – well, sort of…. its Henry – the stuffed stooge dog!

It is well known that behaviourists occasionally have to use what we call a  ’stooge’ dog when we are working with dog reactive dogs. Traditionally a well  trained, very well rounded, non reactive live dog is used to assess the ‘threshold’  of the reactive dog we are working with.


Introducing Susi!

We are very excited to have a new member of the Pet-Professionals team – Ruths new dog Susi!

Susi is a stunning Northern Inuit puppy who was looking for a home due to no fault of her own.
It just so happens that Ruth had her heart set on this particular breed so when she heard that Susi (formerly named Shadow) needed a home she went along to see her – and came home with her the same day! Susi is Finnish for Wolf, which we think is very apt.

Northern Inuits are not a breed for the novice owner, they need experienced and kind handling and do not do well if left alone for long periods. Ruth leads the perfect life for Susi – they are together all day and enjoy lots of walks and games :)

We think your’ll agree that Susi is a bit of a head turner!
