Operation TransPAWmation

FREE Weight Checks for Dogs & Cats

We offer FREE weight checks for all dogs and cats in-store. No appointment necessary.

Operation TransPAWmation

Operation TransPAWmation returns to Petmania this February and March and this year we are asking Pet Owners to think about the #HealthierHabits they could introduce to help prevent their dogs and cats from gaining excess weight.

It isn’t news that obesity in dogs and cats is a growing problem with 3 in 5 dogs and 40% of cats now showing signs of being overweight. If your pet develops obesity it will shorten its life expectancy and can lead to long term health issues like arthritis, ligament damage or cardio-respiratory problems.

FREE Weight Checks

Bring your dog or cat to Petmania during February and March 2020 for a FREE Weight and Body Condition Score Check, pick up your FREE booklet containing a food diary, exercise hints and tips, suggested #HealthierHabits and exclusive discounts! PLUS! Your dog or cat will go into a draw to WIN 3 months food from Royal Canin!

We offer FREE weight checks for all dogs and cats in-store. No appointment necessary.
