Christmas, Pets and Presents


Many of our animals, more often cats who are curious by nature, will be attracted by ribbons, boxes, envelopes and colored packets. As always, take care!

Halitosis in Pets


Often and often we Veterinary Doctors are questioned by owners: “ Doctor, what can we do for  the halitosis  of my dog or cat?” We usually note our  friend’s halitosis on 2 occasions: When the animal is getting older, therefore a normal worsening of the health conditions of the oral cavity is justified On other occasions of particular contact between pet and owner ( who among you doesn’t sleep with your own cat or doesn’t fill him up with cuddles…
