Marisa Reidy, PR and Marketing Officer with Recovery Haven says, “We are absolutely thrilled that Petmania has once again seen the benefits of what Recovery Haven does for those living with cancer and their families here in Kerry and has chosen to join forces with us for this exciting and unique initiative. We are so grateful for their support.”

Petmania’s Operation TransPAWmation is a free programme available nationwide. The programme educates pet parents on how they can look after their pet’s health and wellbeing.

The aim of the Tralee dog walk is to get pet owners active with their dogs for a fun filled day. Exercise is vital for dogs, getting out for exercise occupies their mind and is great for both their mental and physical health.

Petmania’s experts will be on hand on the day providing free weight checks and body condition score checks for every dog that takes part.

Each dog that has a weight check will go into Petmania’s draw to win a hamper of goodies including a free groom at their grooming studio along with receiving a booklet with tips on preventing obesity and keeping your dog healthy.

With 1 in 3 Irish dogs being overweight, a nationwide survey by the specialist pet retailer of almost 500 respondents has revealed that it remains the number one issue for Ireland’s pets.

The amount of exercise a pet needs depends on many factors such as age, breed and size but the average is estimated to be 45 minutes and just 40 per cent of Irish dogs are receiving this.
