Where are Boothstown's fat cats and dogs?
3:20pm Monday 26th August 2013 in News
PET owners in the eastern part of the borough are invited to enter their overweight cat or dog in a competition to find the fattest in the area.
White Cross Vets in Walkden is offering owners from the Boothstown, Ellenbrook and Mosley Common areas the opportunity to put their pets through their paces as part of a weight loss programme and offer the chance to win a year’s supply of healthy food.
The competition is in response to a surge of overweight cats and dogs coming into the practice.
Pet owners have until the end of September to enter.
Lorna Siddons, Clinic Director of White Cross Vets, says: “The dangers of cats and dogs being overweight are often overlooked, despite the problem being one of the main welfare issues affecting pets in the UK. Pets face many of the same risks as overweight humans with diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and the consequent lower life expectancies becoming genuine concerns in overweight cats and dogs.”
To enter call White Cross Vets on 0161 799 5557. Entry deadline is September 30.
