A weight management competition open to veterinary practices across the UK and Ireland will be launched by Royal Canin on August 3, 2015.
The contest not only provides support and rewards weight loss in cats and dogs, but also recognises the hard work pet owners and veterinary nurses put in to keep pets at a healthy weight.
- best long-term weight maintenance
- best starter
- best combined pet and owner weight loss
- healthy weight ambassador for pet owners and nurses who have kept their pets at ideal weight throughout life, despite challenges
Every pet owner and veterinary nurse registering for the Healthy Weight competition will get a gift and prizes will be up for grabs, with a £1,000 holiday voucher for the winning pet owner and nurse.
Royal Canin veterinary marketing executive Sarah Collins said: “For the past four years Royal Canin has teamed up with vet practices to support weight management clinics, working closely with veterinary nurses as part of the its weight management programme.
“The Healthy Weight competition takes this concept further – not only celebrating significant weight loss in cats and dogs, but also recognising animals that maintain a healthy weight.”
