Craig Gibson is the resident online content and features writer for petpages. Craig comes from a background in environmental science and previously worked as a safari guide in Africa – where he got to work with some rather large ‘pets’. Growing up in rural Botswana Craig had the novelty of having some fairly exotic pets including an ostrich, chameleon and various snakes and creepy crawlies – which is possibly where his love of animals stems from.
With the holiday season upon us, and with puppies likely to be on many children’s Christmas lists, petpages decided to get some sound advice in this regard from the RSPCA - an organisation with an enviable reputation in animal advocacy worldwide.
Holistic care and alternative medicine is an established part of the human health care universe, but how many of you know that your pet pooch or tabby could be booked in for a spot of craniosacral therapy or a massage?
The holiday season is supposed to be a time of goodwill, but every year without fail animal shelters report a spike in abandoned animals, as people prioritise their annual getaway over the wellbeing of their pets.
