    A not-for-profit veterinary company is opening its second practice in Yorkshire. The clinic opens less than one year since it unveiled its first Yorkshire based surgery in Tingley, Leeds.

    Animal Trust opens on Railway Street, Dewsbury, on the 14th January and welcomes all patients in and around the area.

    “We couldn’t be prouder to be opening our second clinic in Yorkshire,” said Owen Monie, founder of Animal Trust.

    “The success of our Tingley clinic has increased demand across the county, therefore we identified the need of a not-for-profit veterinary clinic further west in Yorkshire.”

    Set up by vets with the main focus on the welfare of animals, the not-for-profit organisation reinvests all profits back into the business for the benefit of their patients.

    “Unlike most veterinary clinics, we offer free consultations with experts to enable patients to access care and advice on treatment exactly when they need help. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, you can visit any Animal Trust clinic across the UK.” added Owen.

    The new Dewsbury clinic is based in the heart of town with a large free car park available to all patients, providing veterinary facilities including general practice care, dentistry, surgery, x-ray, orthopaedics, and an onsite laboratory.

    With the nation focussing on improving our health in the new year, Animal Trust is also urging pet owners to become treatwise for their pets.

    “Christmas is renowned as a time of indulgence for humans and this often includes giving our pets an extra treat here or there,” said Owen.

    “As little as 10% of a pet’s daily calories can be made up of treats, which soon adds up, and similarly to humans, our pets may have gained a few pounds by the time the new year has begun.

    “Unfortunately, pet obesity still remains a growing concern for vets which is often caused by overfeeding and a lack of exercise. We would like to help pet owners ensure their animals live as healthy a life as possible, starting with their pet’s waistlines.”

    For a small dog weighing around 9kg, feeding them just two rashers of bacon equates to a human eating the calories equivalent to a whopping nine digestive biscuits, and for a large cat weighing 5.5kg, this equates to a human eating 14 biscuits.

    “Rather than offering our pets scraps leftover from our plates, we can give them natural healthy treats in moderation, all of which can be found in the fridge or the cupboard, like fruits and vegetables.

    “Just by making these small changes to our pet's diet can significantly improve their health, quality of life, and reduce the chance of them developing a serious condition.” added Owen.

    If you would like to receive expert advice and care for your pet’s health, book a free consultation at Animal Trust. Visit the Animal Trust website to locate your nearest clinic, register your pet and book an appointment online.

    The Dewsbury clinic will be open from the 14th January: 8.30am - 6.30pm, seven days a week. Telephone: 01924 927220. Email:
