Pet care: Needs under one roof!
Pet lovers understand that the relationship between a pet and its owner is as special as one between a mother and her child, and owners care for their little babies with as much love. However, there seems to be a dearth of good-quality clinics and shops catering to their needs in India.chandigarh Updated: May 11, 2014 10:49 IST
Pet lovers understand that the relationship between a pet and its owner is as special as one between a mother and her child, and owners care for their little babies with as much love. However, there seems to be a dearth of good-quality clinics and shops catering to their needs in India.
Travelling overseas for dog shows, Sikander Singh, a well-known Rottweiler breeder, noticed the need for a professional pet care clinic and grooming parlour here, and came up with the concept of ‘Planet Pets’, which aims to fulfill all animal care requirements under one roof.
Planet Pets boasts a veterinarian clinic and a grooming parlour, and is stocked with medicines, accessories and foods, besides offering free dietary guidance.
Sikander, a founder member of the Panchkula Kennel Club and the Rottweiler Club of India, and more importantly, an ardent dog lover, says, “Many people run pet shops and clinics, but very few know what is best for our furry friends. I do not just sell products.
I ask every owner visiting the shop about the breed, age and condition of their pet, before suggesting a suitable supplement or food. This is how we provide 360° pet care.”
The shop retails many international brands which are not easily available in India, the trainer claims, adding that his passion for breeding Rottweiler dogs has taken him around the world, and he has picked up the nuances of pet care with experience.
Sikander says professional care is a must for every pet. “People buy expensive pets without knowing how to care for them. If you give a longhaired animal a shower but do not dry it, it may contract infections due to the resulting dampness.
Every animal requires specialised treatment and grooming tailored according to their needs. The grooming parlour at Planet Pets is managed by professionals who have been trained in Thailand,” he adds.
The trainer says he is glad to receive a “tremendous” response to his initiative, as it proves that people are finally warming up to the idea of worldclass treatment for their pets!
