To help combat the pet obesity crisis PDSA launches its annual Pet Fit Club competition and is inviting owners of the UK’s biggest pets to apply for a chance to take part in the fat fighting contest. Pet Fit Club participants will take part in a tailored diet and exercise programme, overseen by expert vets and nurses over a six month period.

Millie (Female, 4)
Breed: Cocker Spaniel
Current weight: 33.5kg
Ideal weight: 16kg
109% overweight

Morbidly obese Millie’s eyes have always been rather too big for her belly, and the cheeky girl will steal any food she can get her paws on – even the cats’ food! She is also an expert beggar, using those puppy dog eyes at every opportunity, and even doing her own ‘happy dance’ when she gets her favourite treats.

Poor pug Poppy was rescued from a puppy farm where she was used to intensively produce puppies for profit. This experience has left her with a number of health issues, including being dangerously overweight. Now settled into her loving ‘forever home’, new owner Megan is helping Poppy to safely lose weight and improve her health. Having lost 600g already, Poppy is finding it much easier to walk and run, and is well on the way to reaching her ideal weight.

Duke is your typical Labrador – a big softy that loves everyone, but most of all he loves food! At more than double his ideal weight, Duke is morbidly obese. His greedy tricks of the trade include stealing sweets from children, diving into his favourite savoury snack – a packet of crisps, and nudging his owner’s arm out of the way when eating dinner to plead for more food with his puppy dog eyes.

Blobby Bobby is partial to picnics and has to be kept on a lead to prevent him from scoffing other people’s snacks. He’s even been known to raid neighbours’ houses for food! His greedy habits have helped contribute to his whopping weight of 63kg – more than twice what he should be.

Named after Guy Fawkes, due to his arrival on 5th November, this eight-year-old cat has always been a big chap. He lives on a main road so is kept indoors, but his owner struggles to get him to do any exercise as he is incredibly lazy! At nearly 11kg, this fat cat is closing in on three times his healthy weight! Angie wants to help him lose weight as she’s worried about his heart.

Rescue cat Boycus is one of several cats in the household; all the others are a healthy weight, but Boycus has ballooned in the last couple of years and is now morbidly obese. He has a tendency to eat everything in sight and his owner Sam has tried everything to restrict his access to food to help him lose weight. Boycus’ vet recently suggested upping the exercise levels, but with a fat, lazy cat, that’s easier said than done!
