Hello and welcome to the November/December edition of PetFocus magazine.
Christmas has hurried along again. It’s hard to believe that it’s already time for mince pies, mulled wine, and deciding what festive treats to get those we love most – our pets!
As the decorations go up and the weather outside turns decidedly chilly, vet Sarah Elliott shares her advice on how to keep cats safe during the winter months. We also hear from behaviourist Karen Wild on how to look after an energetic pup.
For some people and animals, this time of the year can be a tough one. We take a look at the work done by the charity Street Paws to help homeless people care for their pets and find a place where they can stay together.
Elsewhere in this issue, there’s a guide to which self-care products can be toxic to pets, and advice on how to provide a guinea pig with a healthy diet.
From all of us at PetFocus, we wish you and your pets a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
