At this stage our intentions are to be open during the stage 4 lock down, as we operate under the ‘Essential’ category providing food for our beloved pets.

We are making a few changes at the shop to ensure everybody is safe and also to minimise the spread of the virus. We will have limited staff available, so we ask for your patience during this time.

To enable us to practise social distancing, our front door will be closed, in order for us to restrict customer numbers instore to a maximum of 5 at any time. We also ask our customers stay a minimum of 2 meters away from other customers as well as from staff.

Our shop hours from Wednesday 25th of March will be 8.30 am to 4 pm on weekdays and 10 am to 3 pm over weekends. However, these hours may change due to customer demand so please keep an eye out on our Facebook and Instagram. You are welcome to email us at

We have stock arriving daily. We can also have orders couriered to you, however please call to make sure you are in range of our couriers.

We would like to thank all of our customers, and we will do everything in our power to ensure all your pet needs are met during this time.

We wish you all to take care
