The Biggest Shedder
ABOUT THE COMPETITION
We know that America loves its pets. We also know that 54 percent of cats and dogs in the U.S. are overweight and, like in humans, that can lead to major health issues like heart and respiratory disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis and other serious, life-shortening disorders.
To help your pet lose these extra pounds, we are happy to introduce “The Biggest Shedder” national weight loss competition. The “Biggest Shedder” weight loss competition is a fun way for you to help your pet shed the pounds needed to lead a healthier life.
We, and the furry friend next to you, believe you should be rewarded for taking steps to give your pet a better quality of life. So, if you decide to join the competition, you will be entered into a drawing to win prizes for each weigh-in you complete for your pet.
All paws in?
