Do you own a pudgy pet?
This month, Petbarn is challenging Gold Coast pet parents to enter their furry friends into ‘Petbarn’s Biggest Pet Loser’ challenge, which aims to help Aussie pets lose weight!
The 12-week weight loss challenge hopes to raise awareness of the health risks of pet obesity and encourage pet owners to reconsider what they’re feeding their pets.
The top 10 chosen pets will be provided with a customised health and nutrition plan by Greencross Vets and the pet owner will receive a personalised consultation with celebrity trainer Sam Wood, along with access to three rounds of his online training and nutrition program ’28 by Sam Wood’.
Last year, Petbarn had over 400 entries to the competition with the top three participants losing an average of 20% of their total body weight.
For the winning pet, Barkley the Labrador from Queensland, that was a loss of 11.2kgs!
“We had an amazing response to the challenge last year and this year we look forward to watching the participants shed the kilos – and maybe even have a winner from our area,” Local Burleigh Waters Petbarn Store Manager Gina O’Neil said.
Gold Coast locals with overweight dogs or cats can register for the challenge at petbarnbiggestpetloser.com.au and go into the running to win a $2,000 Petbarn voucher and $1,000 cash.
But be quick, registrations close 21 February 2018.
