Tick Season is Here! Make like a Boy Scout and Be Prepared.

TICKS! It's the beginning flea and tick season and all of these little nasties are starting to come out and say hello. Please make sure that your pets are fully protected from parasites by using the appropriate treatments. This picture is of a tick nest! 😱

Please look out for them in your gardens or on your dog walks. 🐜

Here are some top tips to ensure your garden has the best chance of staying tick free:
- Mow your lawn regularly. Ticks like to live in long grass.
- Ticks do not like sunlight. Make sure your garden is as sunny as possible by removing debris and any unused items you may have lying around creating shade.
- Cut back vegetation and sweep up brush and dead leaves. 🍃

Prevention is better than cure! Ticks can carry numerous harmful blood-borne diseases such as Lyme Disease and some diseases transferred from ticks can kill your pets. Speak to your vet about the best parasite prevention treatments for your pet. 🚑

You should also use a natural flea and tick repelling spray before each walk to ensure your pet doesn't pick up any new friends when out and about. 

You can even use a natural parasite repelling herb like Diatomaceous Earth as a food supplement for your pets or sprinkle it on their bedding and sleeping area. Please do not use Diatomaceous Earth in your garden as it can be harmful to bees and worms! 🐝

Firstly, let me start by saying that it has been an absolute pleasure to work you and your fur-babies in the past, and we look forward to doing business with you again in the future. I'm privileged to be able to do a job that I love and I'm thankful to all of my clients for making our first year of business as a grooming parlour so successful.

As you may know, since opening in May 2014 we have yet to have an increase in our prices, despite gaining further qualifications, training and investing significantly in new equipment and premium products. In February 2015 we introduced a new pricing structure to our new clients, but existing clients remained on the old pricing structure. We are now implementing our new pricing structure to ALL clients. This will take effect from 1st May 2015. If you would like to enquire about your new grooming price please feel free to contact us via phone, text message, email, facebook or via our website and we will give you a personalised quote.

If you are at all concerned about the price increase, we do now offer a VIP Membership Scheme. The VIP Membership Scheme splits the yearly cost of your pet's grooming into 12 equal payments, and is paid via standing order on the 1st of each month, helping you with your budget and ensuring that your grooming fee will be fixed for at least a year. If you would like to learn more or sign up to our VIP Scheme please do let us know.

We are confident you will continue to be pleased with our superior service and look forward to seeing you at your next appointment!
