Vet4life on ITV Daybreak

overweight-pug“Fat Pets on the Rise”

Did you spot our clinic on ITV Daybreak yesterday morning? Yep, some of the team were up very early for live filming which took place inside the surgery!

Local vet Zara Boland talked about pet obesity and showed us a couple of ways to tell if our pets are overweight. Unfortunately fat pets are on the rise but the Pet Food Manufacturing Association (PFMA) has launched a national campaign to promote good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle for UK pets, called Friends for Life.

Part of this campaign involves a “Weigh in Wednesday” each week in May, promoting pets to be a healthy bodyweight, which can extend their lifespan by up to 2 years. The campaign launched yesterday and Vet4life were delighted to be of help!
