Ever seen a gerbil go on a train ride? Here's one to choo-choo-chase those Monday blues away!
(psst...no train breakdowns for this lucky gerbil)
Gerbils are social, interactive and inquisitive by nature. Playtime is a must to keep these critters occupied. Check out our past issue of Pet Care Tips: Play with your gerbils for other playtime ideas that you may want to try (:
In the last Pet Care Tips on birds, we shared a video on how you can pick a more suitable bird if you're a beginner in this field. This time around, we have another easy-to-understand video to show you how you can up the relationship ante and get your bird to perch on your finger! This is especially useful if you want to bring your bird out without the cage.
Before this step, you need to ensure your bird's wings are clipped so he will not fly too far away from you. This is best left to the avian-trained vet, so give your vet a holler soon if you haven't already.

In case you missed the news, we recently launched the 6th Dog Run Park in Sembawang! Check out Mr Khaw Boon Wan - Minister for National Development's blog for more details! A dog run park is a place where doggies can run and play freely within a confined space. Otherwise, dogs do need to be leashed in public at all times.
And to show you just how much dogs all around the world love the idea of the dog run, here's a clip of a Husky who just does not want to go home after an afternoon of playtime with his doggy friends.
This public holiday, why don't spend some time with your dog at a dog run park close to you. Allowing your dog to socialise with other people and dogs helps with his obedience.
Just like a dog that needs a shower every week, your pet terrapin can benefit greatly from a clean shell too!
Note: - Only use water! Please do not add any soap or detergent as they're poisonous to your terrapin - Please use a dedicated tub for your terrapin to reduce any possible cross contamination of salmonella.
