Dechra Launches How to Videos for Pet Owners

‘How To’ Videos Give Advice To Pet Owners Pet owners would welcome advice and guidance on how to carry out simple tasks, such as giving a pill to heir cat or cleaning their dog’s ears, according to vets. Following discussions with veterinary professionals, Dechra Veterinary Products has launched a series of ‘How To’ videos, which show pet owners how to carry out simple procedures to look after their animals.

The first two videos: ‘How To Shampoo Your Dog’ and ‘How To Pill A Cat’ are now available for pet owners to watch on the Dechra website Carol Morgan, Product Manager at Dechra, says: “We’ve been advised by vets that pet owners would welcome advice and guidance on how to complete these simple tasks.

Owners often have a fear of getting it wrong; for example when it comes to cleaning a pet’s ears they are concerned it could be difficult to do or that they may hurt their animal. This fear leads many owners to not do these tasks, which is not good for their animal, as these procedures are very important to the health of all pets.

By effectively carrying out these procedures, owners can also reduce the risk of their pet having problems in the future.” Dechra will be producing four videos in total: How To Pill A Cat, which are now available, along with How To Clean A Dog’s Ears and How To Clean A Cat’s Ears, which will be available on the company’s website shortly.

The videos give pet owners advice, in a clear and simple way, on how to complete these simple tasks and have been developed and filmed in conjunction with Louise O’Dwyer, Head Nurse at Petmedics in Manchester. How To Shampoo Your Dog and Louise O’Dwyer, Head Nurse at Petmedics in Manchester, adds: “To us it is quite straightforward but any of the four activities we have focused on can be quite stressful for pet owners. If anyone has ever had to give a pill to a cat, they will know how difficult this can be. The videos are simple to follow and demonstrate how to complete each task, with clear verbal instructions.

We really hope this will help to overcome some of the fears and help pet owners in looking after their pets.”
