A large percentage of our cases are due to family pets encountering wildlife.
Keep your dog on a leash at all times when not enclosed on your property.
Ensure your dog is well exercised and given attention. Dogs will harass and chase wildlife out of instinct or if they are simply bored.

Please practice responsible pet ownership ensuring your local wildlife are kept safe.
