Health & Wellbeing



When a four-legged member of the family is feeling poorly, the two-legged ones suffer too. And when something more serious is amiss, then skilled help can be urgently required.

Vets in Germany are highly trained and professional. The vast majority are very caring, treat their patients lovingly and the pet owners with respect. Many suggest holistic treatments and are highly persuasive on the topics of healthy feeding, weight and exercise. Numerous vets offer their mobile number in case any emergency arises.
