A mobile veterinary service designed specifically for feline patients won “15 Seconds of Fame” on national television, thanks to a competition hosted by mobile payments company iZettle.

Amy Bergs is looking forward to her 15 minutes of fame.

Hundreds of small businesses owners from across the UK submitted 15-second videos to be in with a chance of winning a TV advert – including Amy and Robert Bergs, whose mobile veterinary service offers home visits to cats in need across many parts of Surrey and south-west London.

Known for her love of cats, Amy had developed a reputation as “the cat vet” at her previous practice and wanted to find a way to make the whole veterinary experience easier for cats and their owners alike.

So, along with her husband and friend Shreen Haywood, a veterinary nurse, Amy started The Cat Doctor. Two years on, the company has become so successful Amy is planning to purchase a mobile surgery van to help make their patients even more comfortable.

And now, thanks to iZettle, Amy has taken her business to the next level – The Cat Doctor was advertised on prime time television across the nation. First broadcast on 16 November, the advert will be aired for a week on channels such as Sky News, Sky Sports, Comedy Central and many more.

Amy said: “We are so excited to have won the competition. We love what we do and would like to help more cats, it’s such an amazing opportunity to share what we can offer on national television.”
