National Pet Month
We all love our pets don’t we?! Here at Hellenia we are no exception.
It will come as no surprise that the world’s most popular pets are cats and dogs; with their company being enjoyed by both adults and children, they really are embraced as being a true part of the family. Research suggests that cuddling an animal boosts levels of the hormone oxytocin which makes us feel happy, and decreases cortisol (the stress hormone) in the body. Their companionship can combat loneliness; an important issue in this modern day. Caring for our pets and providing them with food, toys and a safe and comfortable home environment can bring us real comfort; in return we receive their loyalty and love… Awww!
National Pet Month celebrating its 30th year and running 1st April 2019 – 6th May 2019 brings together animal welfare charities, professional bodies, businesses and schools, and is an opportunity for people to celebrate their pets and show their support; attending and organising events, boosting the awareness of responsible pet ownership, and raising money for animals in need.
Providing a nutritious and well balanced diet for your pet is so important. Just like humans, animals can also suffer from poor digestion, painful and arthritic joints and skin/hair/nail problems. Our range of animal supplements Vets Choice can help maintain the health of your pet by supporting their regular diet.
In celebration of our furry friends, and in our continued quest to keep them healthy and happy we have decided to introduce our best-selling pet supplement GAGS tablets in a tasty new chicken flavour - just to make it extra special for them. Look out for its arrival over the next few weeks! It is the same great formula designed to help your animal run around and about without any unwanted side effects, but with a yummy flavour that will make it feel like more of a treat. We hope they like it!
