Our Head of Companion Animals, Dr Samantha Gaines said:
We would urge anyone thinking of getting a pet - whatever the time of year – to consider the costs and long-term commitment associated with caring for an animal. And we certainly wouldn’t advise giving pets as presents as the main care-giver must be prepared to look after him or her for the rest of their life.
