Best pet shop there is in Ireland, only gets and sells animals from ethical breeders so you can be sure you’re getting a healthy pet. Also only advises proper care for all animals, proper cage and tank sizes, proper set ups etc, this making them the only pet shop in the country that does so. Most other pet shops sell animals from rodent mills, and cages and other products that are unsuitable and unsafe for animals. So you know you’re getting the correct advice and best care when you go to Shauna’s :)
Couldn't recommend this shop more, the staff Lisa and Robert were so helpful and informative. Lisa is also a dog trainer and groomer so she was a fountain of knowledge of how to keep my Irish Terrier puppy stimulated and secure in the correct lead and harness. I recommend bringing your dog in with you so they can try on the different harnesses and see what works best for them. It's also so important to support small Irish independent store's like this one 👍
Lovely place, the animals aren't treated as products and have adequate enclosures, a rare quality in the business. The owners are very sympathetic and know what they're doing. The care instructions on the enclosures brought a smile to my face, as it furthermore confirms this is the best place in Dublin for animal care.
I used to go there on my bad days to look at the bunnies! Then, I finally bought a rabbit from them! 🐇 I'm just so happy to have such a lovely pet shop close to work! The staff is always super helpful and friendly 😍
How often Should a Small pet have its nails trimmed?
A small pet should have their nails trimmed as required. When nails become too long they need to be trimmed. An experienced person must trim a small animal’s nails as if they are cut too short they can cause bleeding and pain.
What happens if an animal’s nails get too long?
In the case of rabbits, if their nails get too long the rabbit will compensate by changing the angle in which they put their foot down. This will eventually lead to increased wear on the joints.
Long nails can also easily get snagged. A snag can then lead to rips and foot injuries.
