Beach Body Photo Contest!

Posted by on Apr 3, 2017 in Blog


Summer is just around the corner; who doesn’t have a few extra pounds to lose? Not only does a fit pet look better, they’ll feel better too. 59% of cats and 54% of dogs are overweight or obese. Obesity leads to several health problems including hypertension, liver disease, and a shortened lifespan. Do your pet a favor and help them get back in shape for swimsuit season!

Submit a photo of your cat or dog exercising, playing, or being active in their own way, for a chance to win an amazing and playful gift basket full of fitness goodies from West Paw Design. Don’t be afraid to get creative!  

Post your image on Instagram or Facebook and make sure to tag @gothamvetcenter and use the hashtag #GVCPhotoContest to be entered for your chance to win.
