PDSA Fit Club Helps Overweight Pets Lose Weight

by Alessia

The PDSA Fit Club helps overweight pets lose weight through a contest they hold. Families from all over UK can enter their overweight pets into this contest, which is essentially The Biggest Loser for pets. Of the seventeen finalists for this year’s competition, ten are dogs.

1. Max (six year old jack Russell) is 71% overweight due to his love of left-overs and biscuits.

And meet last year’s winner, Ruby!
pc_311621746979463Ruby was a spoiled rotten pooch who weighed in at more than 50% overweight until her owner entered her in the PDSA Fit Club last year. Now Ruby is at a healthy weight and loves running and playing, things she couldn’t do before due to lack of energy and physical size. Congratulations, Ruby!
