PDSA is launching a nationwide search to find the chubbiest cats, dogs and rabbits in the UK for this year’s Pet Fit Club competition.
Now in its 13th year, Pet Fit Club, has helped 124 overweight and obese pets (79 dogs, 37 cats and 8 rabbits) lose an incredible 450kg (71 stone): equivalent to a grand piano or 160,000 doughnuts!
Pets chosen for Pet Fit Club are placed on a strict six-month diet and exercise programme, individually tailored and overseen by vets and nurses at their local PDSA Pet Hospital.
Up to 15 overweight dogs, cats and rabbits from across the UK will be chosen to participate in Pet Fit Club. Participants will receive free diet pet food for the duration of the competition, courtesy of Dechra. The overall Pet Fit Club Champ, crowned at the end of 2018, will win a year’s free diet food and a pet friendly holiday, courtesy of Sykes Cottages, and a pet hamper.
