Beat the Monday Blues: A Doggie-rella Story

Here's a Cinderella-esque story that is sure to leave an impression. Watch how Charlie, the shelter dog, gets his well-deserved makeover which eventually led him to his happily ever after - when he gets adopted.

Apart from looking aesthetically pleasing, grooming is a must for dogs as long hair gets tangled and can be prone to skin diseases. So be a responsible pet owner by making sure your pet's well-being is taken care of.

Pet Care Tips: Is My Dog Overweight?

We love our dogs but sometimes, we over-indulge in them a little too much. Is your dog overweight? Watch today's video to find out. If he is, it's best to fix an appointment and speak with your vet about a weight loss programme.

Obesity can cause health problems for your dog.

Beat the Monday Blues: Singapura, Oh Singapura!

To celebrate our nation's 50th birthday, we pay tribute to a special breed of cats who were found on our island – the Singapura cats! They are the smallest in the cat family and have really sweet voices. Let's get to know them a bit better.

Whether it is a pedigree cat or your local Domestic Short-Haired, they all share a common need from us – to be loved. There are many cats looking for homes at the animal shelters. If you are ready to have one, consider adoption first.

Have a Happy National Day!
