Dr. Kes' pets

Dr. Kes has two whippets called Zac and Chino. Typical of their breed, the boys love 'zoomies', chasing fluffy things, napping on the couch and generally being as close as physically possible to their humans! Chino requires treatment for separation anxiety and other behavioural issues, contributing to Dr Kes' keen interest in behavioural medicine.

Kes' Top Recommended Products

Kong Zoom Groom

"Both of my dogs absolutely adore being brushed with the Zoom Groom - they even push each other out of the way to be brushed first! It removes so much loose fur from short-coated dogs and makes their coats extra shiny."

Petosan Dental Kit

"Regular toothbrushing is an often overlooked part of dog health care, but can save you and your dog so much trouble in the long run. This brush design makes it easy to cover all surfaces of the teeth in one pass, while the long handle enables you to reach the back molars safely. As a bonus, my dogs enjoy the poultry-flavoured toothpaste and even look forward to their brushing sessions!"

Aloveen Shampoo

"I use Aloveen as my regular dog shampoo as it lathers well and smells amazing. For my dog that suffers from mildly sensitive skin, the oatmeal formulation is soothing and settles down the itching immediately without needing to use oral medication. "

Kong Classic Red

"Food puzzle toys are fantastic for management of anxiety, tapping into a dog’s natural instinct to chew and forage. The large hole in the Kong classic makes for easy filling and clean up. "
