PFMA Welcomes the Second PDSA Pet Animal Welfare (PAW) Report

Following last year’s momentous report, PDSA have launched their second Pet Animal Welfare Report

The report focuses on 4 key animal welfare issues affecting the health and well being of the nations cats, dogs and rabbit: good nutrition, the importance of training and socialising dogs, preventative health treatment and the importance on researching pet ownership, and advises there remains a widespread misunderstanding of how to meet pets’ needs with over 10 million pets not as healthy and happy as they should be. 

The PDSA PAW Report suggested a slight increase in the proportion of owners starting to recognise obesity in their pets, although sadly this has not led to a cut down in over treating with inappropriate table scraps and pet owners are still struggling to identify a healthy body shape for their cats, dogs and rabbits. 

The findings serve to remind us that there is still a huge job to do in educating pet owners about all aspects of animal wellbeing.  In 2013 we will be working further, both independently and with other organisations,  to help reduce the risk of obesity.
