Chance to transform your pampered portly pooches
One in three dogs are overweight - is yours? This is the question being asked by Petmania as they launch Operation TransPAWmation in stores across the country. Aimed at encouraging pet owners to think about their dog's overall health and wellbeing, Petmania says that being overweight can have a serious negative impact on our dog's health, with overweight dogs being more at risk of illnesses like Type 2 Diabetes, Heart & Respiratory Illness, Kidney Disease, Osteoarthritis and Cancer. The first step in Operation TransPAWnation is to bring your dog to meet with one of Petmania's certified weight management advisors on Saturday, March 11, and have your dog's weight checked. Combining weight with a Body Condition Score, Petmania's team will let you know if your dog's weight needs some special attention. Dogs that reach their goal will also receive a special rosette, as well as a start towards a happier, healthier life. Both the weigh-in and the assessment are free. Petmania in Wexford is at Clonard Retail Park, Clonard Little, Wexford Town.
