UNDERSTANDING YOUR CAT

Cat Care for Owners

To many, cats seems to be fussy and complex animals. However, it is this mysteriousness that draws people into the world of cats.

Knowing & Understanding Dogs

Dogs are lovely, and we adore them, but do we know how to take good care of our four-legged friends? This course will study dogs’ behaviour and body language and debunk all the dog care and training myths. We will also answer your questions and help you become the best owner your dog deserves. 

Geriatric Cat Care

As cats enter their senior years  (i.e. seven years or older), like humans, they will slow down and become more prone to age-related ailments . They may also suffer from painful joints and may not be able to jump or groom themselves like they used to. Kidney and thyroid disease are also common and may result in overweight issues. Dental problems may affect their appetite; hence the cats will start to lose weight as they age.

older pet care seminar

Geriatric Dog Care

As with older humans, pets can develop a variety of problems associated with old age. The onset of arthritis may make them less active or less able to groom themselves; their drinking and eating habits may change due to dental, renal or thyroid diseases; and they may either gain or lose weight!

cat grooming seminar

Cat Grooming

Grooming cats can be tricky, even for the most experienced owners and the most easy-going pets! In this seminar, we’ll share basic tips and explain the importance of grooming. We’ll even have a cat on hand to illustrate clearly the “do’s” and “don’ts”.

Dog Grooming

Dog Grooming

Does it feel a bit like you are entering a warzone as soon as you start showering your dog and cutting their nails? Sometimes even the most experienced owners are overwhelmed when grooming well-behaved pets. In this course, the SPCA groomer will teach you all of the basic dog-grooming skills you need to know and share tips to help you advance your skills as you practise at home. Whether you are a novice or an experienced owner looking to improve your grooming skills, this course will not disappoint you.
