Dr. Belinda's Top Recommended Products

Royal Canin Mother and Baby Kitten Food

"This is my top diet recommendation for all kittens and the diet that I wean all of my foster kittens onto."

Whimzees Dental Dog Treats

"My dog absolutely loves these treats! They are great for keeping teeth clean and suitable for sensitive tummies. Best thing is that they come in the cutest designs like these hedgehogs....almost too cute to eat!"

Feliway Diffuser

"Feliway has been fantastic for my cat Fatty to help manage his storm phobia. He is noticeably more calm and relaxed when the Feliway Diffuser is running in our house."

Fuzzyard Collars

"This are my favourite brand of collars for my dog, Louie. The designs are fun, colourful and unique but are also durable and look great! Best thing is they come with matching leads and harnesses."
