Taking place online on Wednesday 13th October 2021

PFMA and The Webinar Vet are excited to present this FREE CPD event day which will explore the growing problem of pet obesity and the ways in which vets and vet nurses can help to tackle it head-on.

An excellent panel of expert speakers has been confirmed including Professor Alex German and Georgia Woods-Lee from the University of Liverpool, Professor Thomas Webb from the Psychology Department of Sheffield University and John Chitty, Co-Director of a small animal/exotics practice in Andover.   

Presentations will cover the range of pet species and will provide practical tools and guidance on how best to tackle pet obesity and how to communicate with pet owners on this delicate subject.

Nicole Paley, PFMA Deputy Chief Executive, advises: “We are delighted to be working with The Webinar Vet to address pet obesity. As it is National Pet Obesity Awareness Day, we want to put the spotlight on this complex issue and encourage vets and vet nurses to join us.”
