Pet Fit Club, the UK's biggest and most successful pet slimming competition, is back!
This year we've chosen 13 overweight pets from across the UK, including dogs, cats and even a giant jumbo rat to battle the bulge. Together they weigh 201kg (31st 7lb) and need to lose a combined total of 75kg (11st 12lb) to reach their ideal weights.
We all love our pets. But sometimes we need a helping hand to make the right decisions, especially about diet and exercise! This is where Pet Fit Club comes in, with owners receiving expert advice from PDSA vets and tailored diet programmes to get their pets back in shape.
To date the diet competition has helped 124 overweight and obese pets (79 dogs, 37 cats and 8 rabbits) lose an incredible 450kg (71st) - equivalent to a grand piano or 160,000 doughnuts! Last year's winner, Alfie the Beagle, from Middlesbrough, successfully shed an astonishing 34% of his body weight.
