LONDON, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The rise in pet obesity in the UK has concerned many responsible pet owners. Obese pets could lead to special veterinary care and expensive bills. To minimise the cost of vet care, many pet owners are visiting price comparison sites, such as comparethemarket.com, to find a good deal on pet insurance.
Veterinary charity PDSA warns that pet obesity, particularly in dogs, could become an epidemic* causing them to create the Pet Fit Club. It estimates that over one in three dogs in the UK are overweight or obese, leading to increased risk of serious health conditions and lower life expectancy. For owners who are concerned about their pet's weight, the charity recommends seeking advice from their vets.
Pet insurance is important for many owners, enabling them to give their pets the care that they need. With so many different levels and types of cover, it can be confusing to shop for the right insurance policy.
