Poppy’s Picnic has teamed up with Rachel Bean, an absolutely fantastic Registered Veterinary Nurse and Canine Behavourist to make sure you are in the know about some hidden Christmas doggie dangers to keep your pets safe this holiday with some pointers.
For ushumans, Movember is all about raising awareness and funding for male health and prostate cancer through growing a moustache. But did you know that cancer is the cause of nearly 50% of disease-related pet deaths every year? This November, we want to shift the focus to dogs and highlight Canine Prostate Awareness Month especially with the common suffering of prostate disease in older male dogs.
Our pets’ hearing is far more sensitive than our own. Those shrieking firecrackers can reach up to 150 decibels which is equivalent to a jumbo jet taking off just 25 meters away (enough to cause eardrum rupture). Missing animal reports increase by a third for dogs and a quarter for cats — it’s scary stuff for them and us. Check out Poppy’s four pointers for a happier bonfire night this year.
We loved our experience in The Den. In many ways it’s contributed to the success we have today. Since appearing on the show it seems we have made quite a splash – so many new customers coming to switch their dogs to a raw dog food diet. That’s the best result we could ever have asked for. Find out what happened here.
