Vitabiotics’ Helping Support New Battersea Hospital

09 February 2016
Battersea Dogs and Cats Home

UK - Leading animal welfare charity Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and Vitabiotics SuperDog are working together to shine a spotlight on animal health and help sick animals that find themselves in the Home’s care.

For every pack of SuperDog supplement purchased, a donation will be made to the Home to help fund the development of a new veterinary hospital. Vitabiotics will also provide the supplement free of charge to all owners who rehome a dog from the rescue centre to help ensure their new pets good health continues in their forever homes.

Battersea’s first ever dedicated vet hospital will be a purpose-built modern facility, and the largest of its kind in the UK. The well-known rescue centre sees dogs and cats with severe health problems every day, some having suffered abuse or long-term neglect and many with chronic health problems they’ve endured for years.

Four-year-old German Shepherd Ralph was brought into Battersea in a bad way. He was found wandering the streets looking underweight with patches of fur missing all over his body. Ralph was suffering from pyoderma all over his body, which made his skin very dry and inflamed, meaning it was really sore and painful. Also the skin between the pads on his feet was swollen and sore to touch. Poor Ralph was a really damaged dog when he arrived at the Home, but Battersea’s dedicated and caring staff have worked hard to get him back on his feet. The money donated from the sale of SuperDog will go towards helping dogs like Ralph.

Liz Tait, Battersea’s Director of Fundraising, said: “Battersea’s partnership with Vitabiotics has come at the perfect time, with the launch of Battersea’s Vet Hospital Appeal.

“We want our dogs to be able to go to their forever homes as soon as possible, and the new vet hospital will definitely help us treat more animals in a shorter amount of time, with the new facilities also helping to speed up their recovery so there’s nothing holding them back.

“We’re grateful to Vitabiotics for supporting our dogs and new vet hospital.”
