A microchip is a small, identification implant that is inserted under the skin of cats and dogs, which can be scanned by a vet to identify them if they’re found away from home. Microchips are one of the best forms of pet identification, as they cannot get lost in the way that a collar and tag can.

Microchips can be so much more than just a form of identification though, and SureFlap grasped the opportunity to use them in a whole new way. SureFlap developed a range of microchip pet products that use microchips like unique keys that can be programmed to the products so only registered pets can use them.

SureFlap’s microchip pet door range keeps unwanted animals out of the home by only permitting access to resident pets. This...

Winter is here! Dig out those winter jumpers, dust off the skis and chop the firewood – but don’t forget to spare a thought for your pets that also need special attention in the chilly months. Here are some tips to keep your pet happy and healthy through the winter.

Cosy cribs
Top of the list is a warm bed. Cats, especially older moggies, just love warm spots near the heater or a cosy box lined with warm blankets.. As a special treat, include a snugly heatpad and hear that puss purr! Cats always seem to find the spots where the warm sun hits, but beware – their curious nature can lead them to some dangerous places, such as the tumble dryer, or under a car. Always check for your feline friend before you back the car out of the...

As some of you may know, cats weren’t always the domestic house cats that we have come to know and love. They have a wild origin that goes back over 70,000 years and is connected to that of the African Wild Cat. But how exactly did the cat become a common fixture in a third of American households?

Bonus paw fact: Did you know… New Zealand has the highest percentage of households owning cats at 47%. This is followed by Canada at 38%, America at 32%, United Kingdom at 26% and Australia at 22%. We sure do love our cats down under!

Researchers from the National Cancer Institute examined the DNA of 979 wildcats and domestic cats from across Europe, Asia and Africa to determine which subspecies of the wildcat gave rise to the house...

#1 100% Animal Protein

Cats are ‘obligate carnivores’ which means they have to eat meat.

So, it may come as a surprise to know, that many cat foods use plant or soy proteins. Not us, of course. 

Animal protein is not only more digestible for your cat, because that is what they are designed to eat, but, it improves her body condition. 

Animal protein promotes lean body mass & better muscle tone, and it’s an essential building block for her healthy skin and coat. 

Animal protein is also a natural source of taurine, an essential amino acid for cats. 

IAMS uses only 100% high quality animal protein including egg, the ultimate protein, as well as chicken, lamb and fish. Just as...
