Southampton Pet Store launches weight loss initiative

A pet food and accessory superstore in Southampton has launched a healthy weight loss initiative for pets called The Lean Club.

Healthy Pet Store in Salisbury Road, Totton, is inviting dog owners to sign up to a three-month health-kick to help their pets live a healthier and longer life.

The Lean Club runs in a similar way to a ‘human’ weight loss club with members being invited into Healthy Pet Store for a weekly weigh-in to review their progress and discuss next steps.

As a member of the Lean Club, owners will receive expert advice about meals and portion size, exercise, and rewards for both the owners and the animals when reaching milestones along the way.

The weightloss programme was launched on the 10th January but owners can sign up at any time for a three month period. To take part people simply need to visit Healthy Pet Store to enrol their pet into the programme.

Deborah Burrows Managing Director said: “We are delighted to launch the Lean Club and to help transform pets’ lives through healthy weight loss. Leaner dogs live longer with less joint pain and health complications especially as they get older.

“The programme is to help dogs live a healthier and happier life. All we ask of the owners is to commit to coming in for a weekly weigh-in and to keep hold of their visual tracker.”
