Celebrities get behind making pet health a priority.

October is Pet Obesity Month and Hill’s Pet Nutrition is shining a light on this very serious, very prevalent condition. In fact, obesity is the number one health threat that pets face, with more than half of pets being overweight or obese. With this in mind, Hill’s started the Pet Slimmer programme over 15 years ago to help pets around the country shed unhealthy kilograms. The competition puts a fun spin on a serious issue and is used to raise awareness around the dangers of pet obesity.

This year’s celebrity judges who have the tough job of choosing 2020’s top three Pet Slimmer ambassadors are Angel Campey, Ayanda Thabethe, Janez Vermeiren, Darren Simpson and Msizi James. All five are pet parents themselves and understand the importance of keeping their fur babies health in check.

The judges are spending this month deliberating who they feel is most deserving of first, second and third place in the Hill’s Pet Slimmer competition this year. The results will be announced on 1 November.
