When Flora first arrived in our care after being picked up as a stray, her fur was terribly matted and she was suffering with severe dental disease, mammary masses and a huge tumour bigger than her head on her right side. But despite her ordeal, she never stopped wagging her little tail.

Now, after two months of treatment and care from both our Victoria animal hospital and Suffolk rehoming...

Many beaches have restrictions from May to September, so we asked Blue Cross dogs for their top summer coastal spots in the UK. Here are their favourite places to run free, dip their paws in the sea and roll around in the sand. Please do share your own recommendations in the comments...

HOT WEATHER WARNING! Keep your pet's paws safe this summer with this simple rule. Take your shoes and socks off and stand on the path for five seconds. If it's uncomfortable for you, it will be for your dog too, so it's not safe to walk until it's cooler.

Unlike humans, dogs can’t sweat through their skin and so they rely on panting and releasing heat through their paw pads and noses to keep...

“How would you feel if you were playing with your Xbox and someone took the controller away?” Blue Cross Education Officer Kaye asks a class of teenagers. “I would literally be like, ‘Why are you doing that?!’” an enthusiastic young gentleman replies. Fair enough!

Likewise, snatching away a dog’s toys or waking them from a peaceful slumber are occasions that can cause canines to get annoyed,...

As the mercury rises, we're issuing a warning to cat owners of the dangers of open windows and balconies after treating felines for falls. Several curious kitties have suffered broken bones in recent weeks after falling from heights, with three needing help for shattered pelvises. It is a myth to think that cats will always fall on all four paws. Please read and share this important information!

DID YOU KNOW? Cats have scent glands in their cheeks and it's thought that they rub their faces on people (or familiar cats) to 'mingle' scents, which helps to reinforce social bonds (). They will also rub their cheeks on objects, inside and outside, to build up a unique scent profile of the area, which helps them feel secure and communicate with other felines. #weirdpetfacts

It’s that time of year again when ticks become more active. Ticks are common in woodland, grass and health areas, but can be found in urban towns and cities too. They can spread disease to your dog and you, so always check your dog and yourself for ticks after a walk and remove them quickly.

What do you say to somebody who has recently lost a pet?
Life, once filled with the love and friendship of a pet, may suddenly seem very empty, and some people can experience the same level of grief as they would at the death of a close relative. It can be difficult to know what to say to somebody grieving for a pet, but there are simple things that friends and family can do to help

Gorgeous Hype is one lucky boy. He came to us a few weeks ago suffering from lethargy, breathlessness and weight loss – and tests revealed that he had the potentially-fatal parasite lungworm. Sadly, it is on the rise in the UK and is spread by infected snails, slugs and frogs. The worms get into a dog’s heart and blood vessels and can cause haemorrhages in the lungs, liver, intestine, eyes and...
