Pet food brand, Vet’s Kitchen, has announced the winners of its latest weight loss initiative, after launching an appeal to find dogs and cats from across the nation to take part in its Biggest Loser challenge earlier this year.
As part of the challenge, Vet’s Kitchen supported pets and their owners by providing three weeks of free calculated portions of Vet’s Kitchen’s Light Food for dogs or Ultra Fresh Salmon and Chicken varieties for cats, specifically calculated for a steady and controlled weight loss.
Following a judging process, Teddy, a three-year-old Collie Labrador cross Poodle and six year old tabby, Tiggy have been announced as the Biggest Loser’s in the dog and cat categories and winning a year’s supply of Vet’s Kitchen food.
Before embarking on their new diet, owner’s submitted measurements of their pet’s weight, waist and chest alongside photographs, before doing the same following completion of the three week challenge. The results at the end of the three weeks revealed that all the pets who took part in the challenge successfully lost weight and inches.
Vet’s Kitchen claims to be the only pet food brand with an in-house vets practice.
Jenny Philp, managing director and practicing vet at Vet’s Kitchen, said: “We were delighted with the outcome of the campaign with all of the pets losing a total of 41.6 inches from around their waist and chest and had a combined weight loss of 18.4kg, which is fantastic!
“We are passionate about educating the nation about the importance of feeding the right food to our pets, to ensure we keep them healthier for longer. Both Teddy and Tiggy are a great example of how feeding your pet the right food can have a huge impact on their health and wellbeing and we hope that the results inspire other pet owners to do the same.”
