Pet Supplies from Cairns Vet Clinic

Cairns Vet Clinics Manoora, Aeroglen and Gordonvale Branches all carry a great range of Pet Supplies for dogs, cats, birds & other pets (and even wildlife). Anything we don’t stock we can order in, including bulk products and unusual pet supplies. Did you know we even supply fish farms and breeders with some products they just can’t source elsewhere?

Pet supplies for dogs and cats from Cairns Vet Clinics

Of course, we stock all the common pet supplies you’d expect to find at a quality vet or pet shop such as pet food, flea treatment, tick products, heartworm preventatives and worm tablets. We also do Annual Heartworm Injections which are a great way to make sure you remember to protect your pet against heartworm.

Does your pet need a visit to the groomers?

Cairns Vet Clinic does a lot of  cat and dog grooming, clipping and bathing, and one thing we find very surprising is just how matted and dirty some of the pets that come to us are. 

Matted, knotted coats = difficult (even painful) to groom, often requiring sedation

If you let your dog or cat’s coat get matted, knotted, dirty, or even worse have skin disease under the aforementioned matts, knots and dirt this makes clipping them very difficult and painful.Cairns Dog Groomer Cairns Vet 300x165 How to know when your pet needs a visit to the groomers

In most cases matted coats will need to be clipped off at skin level because the clipper’s can’t move through the matts.

Check long coated pets daily and take to the cat or dog groomer BEFORE they get matted

If you have a long coated pet, you really need to check it and brush it daily (weekly at a minimum) to avoid the coat turning into dreadlocks and matts.  If your pet gets wet or dirty it makes it even more important to brush and clean them regularly.

Have you checked your pet’s skin and coat recently.  Is it time for a trip to the dog groomer or cat clipper?

Don’t leave it too long: matted hair can result in hidden skin disease and discomfort, as well as being unsightly (check out this matted Shih-Tzu visiting the dog groomer for some urgent de-dreadlocking in the video below)
