The National Office of Animal Health (NOAH) is launching its second national “Pet Factor” competition to find the most talented, bravest or most peculiar pet in Britain – and wants veterinary practices to help with the search!
NOAH is inviting everyone involved in veterinary practice to encourage nominations of animals that have:
- Staged an amazing recovery;
- Shown exceptional bravery; or
- Have an extraordinary talent.
The practice that encourages the most nominations will win a luxury hamper for its staff, complete with indulgent spa treatments, oils, candles, champagne and chocolates, valued at £200.
The Pet Factor, now in its second year, was launched to find superstar pets with amazing stories or talents while highlighting the importance of basic pet care: worming, flea control, exercise and a healthy diet.
Maybe you know a dachshund who is a different dog from his neglected former self? Or a cat who’s a crooner? Last year’s winner Chloe (a collie from Hampshire) survived against the odds to become a Pets As Therapy dog.
NOAH chief executive Phil Sketchley said: “Last year’s campaign was an amazing success. We had entrants from all walks of life – from a singing Yorkshire terrier who had become a YouTube sensation to a Birman cat who had climbed Mount Snowdon! This year we want to discover more pets that have the Pet Factor, whether that’s dogs, cats, chickens or goats.”
The winning pet and their owner will win a luxury 3 night lodge stay at Devon’s five star Bovey Castle for 6 people and their furry friends, with dinner included on the first night.
Importantly, Mr Sketchley added: “Don’t forget to encourage your clients to tell us you told them about the competition.”
If you know a pet talented enough to win The Pet Factor 2011 please encourage their owner to enter at www.pethealthinfo.org.uk by February 28, 2011. Free promotional posters, shelf wobblers and business cards are available from NOAH by contacting Jenny Townsend (firstname.lastname@example.org).
