The RSPCA is one of the UK’s oldest animal welfare charities around, which works tirelessly to protect animals and implement laws and rules to raise awareness and care standards for animals everywhere. They respond to tens of thousands of calls a year regarding animal cruelty and save thousands of animals’ lives. The RSPCA website has an in-depth page on pet care which offers expert advice and scientifically backed up information on how to care for all sorts of different pets, from a ‘general pet care’ section to looking after reptiles and other exotic pets.

Pet adoption websites
Pet adoption websites, such as the Blue Cross site, are a great place to look for advice on caring for your pet.

Most pet rehoming or adoption sites will have similar advice sections since the welfare and happiness of animals is at the heart of their goals.
Pet food companies
Often, pet food companies will offer sections on their websites aimed at the health and care of a pet. These companies have put lots of research into developing pet food that meets the needs of animals, and so have a lot of knowledge about the dietary and lifestyle needs of any animals they cater for. Offering care tips and advice to pet owners can be beneficial for their business and you can rest assured that they will have expert opinions and advice to share with all pet owners, old and new.
If you’re looking for tips and tricks on caring for your pets, any of these places will provide you with trusted expert advice.
