Ashleigh and Pudsey back new welfare campaign

Northamptonshire duo Ashleigh and Pudsey are launching a Christmas appeal highlighting the risks that pets face over the festive period.

They've teamed up with the veterinary group Vets4Pets to try and reduce the number of pets which need treatment over Christmas.

The biggest problems are;

Feeding pets things such as chocolate, raisins, sultanas and currants which are toxic to many animals.

Dogs and cats getting stressed when they can't escape crowds of visitors.

Allowing pets to eat meat containing turkey and chicken bones which can easily splinter and cause internal damage.
