ROYAL CANIN launches new Healthy Weight Competition

ROYAL CANIN has announced the launch of a weight management competition. New for 2015, the Healthy Weight Competition is now open to veterinary practices across the UK and Ireland.

The competition 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 with categories including; best long-term weight maintenance, best starter, best combined pet and owner weight loss, and a healthy weight ambassador for pet owners and nurses who have kept their pets at ideal weight throughout life despite challenges.

The competition aims to promote healthy weight in cats and dogs and there are some fantastic prizes up for grabs for both the pet owners and veterinary nurses, including the top prize of a £1,000 holiday voucher for the winning pet owner and nurse!

Sarah Collins, veterinary marketing executive at ROYAL CANIN, said: “For the last four years ROYAL CANIN has teamed up with vet practices across the UK and Ireland to support weight management clinics, working closely with veterinary nurses as part of the ROYAL CANIN Weight Management Programme.

“We are delighted to announce the new Healthy Weight Competition which takes this concept further, not only celebrating significant weight loss in cats and dogs, but also recognising animals who maintain a healthy weight.”

The competition opens on 3rd August and by registering, both pet owner and veterinary nurse will receive a gift. To enter, please visit www.royalcaninhealthyweight.co.uk
