Expert advice and guidance will also be offered to help dog owners consider their pet’s health and wellbeing.
In addition, Pedigree will be launching its ‘Paws for Thought’ Report, to draw attention to the importance of dog health and nutrition. The Report, as well as Wet Nose Week, are all part of Pedigree’s new campaign that asks owners to consider ‘Has your dog had his 4 a day?’.
