We are participating in Pet Diabetes Month this November and encouraging pet owners to collect a urine sample from their pet. Pop into your local branch and pick up a Pet Diabetes leaflet which contains a free urine test stick to check for the presence of glucose in your pet's urine.

For further diabetes information please contact us.
