Last week was the Royal Bath and West Show and the second outing of the summer for the Vet’s Kitchen Health Scan Roadshow after the Surrey show. The RBWS is the biggest show in the soutwest, attracting well over 100,000 visitors (and their dogs), and after 4 really busy days it feels like we saw pretty much all of them at the Vet’s Kitchen stand.
As well as handing out samples of the food and supplements, we were also offering our Health Scans where we give dogs a full health check and also use our ultrasound scanner to assess their fat coverage to see how overweight or obese they are. This was very popular with visitors, and both myself and Louise our Vet Nurse were really busy with scans throughout the show. The longer term aim of doing these scans is to build up a database of information about the weight and fat levels of dogs around the country to help vets and owners tackle the increasingly serious issue of obesity in pets.
After a few days recuperating we’re back out on the road next week for the East of England show (17th – 19th June) so if you’re in the Peterborough area, come along and say hello, and bring your dog along for a free health scan.
