The National Pet Show welcomed more than 23,000 visitors and more than 200 of the UK’s biggest pet suppliers and experts to its London show held at the ExCeL Centre this month.

Established sponsors Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Burgess Pet Care, Fluval and Exo Terra all had a large presence at the show, alongside new sponsors MORETH>N, Pets at Home and Tetra, which sponsored the new Kids Zone.

Other new features at the London show included Dogs with Jobs, which attracted participants such as Hypo Hounds, Medical Detection Dogs and Smokey Paws. Highlights of the show included supervet Noel Fitzpatrick Live and SuperDogs Live, hosted by celebrity Michaela Strachan, in the SuperTheatre; performances in the School 4 Dogs and the Dog Activity Ring; as well as educational talks and hands-on attractions across the show. Biologist and reptile expert Dr Mike Leahy plus TV vet Julian Norton (The Yorkshire Vet) also made appearances.

The new Kids Zone was a highlight for families, offering children the opportunity to get up close to animals and listen to advice from experts on how to care for their pets, as well as storytelling and animal-themed art activities.

Omlet, Vets Kitchen, Pet Savers and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons exhibited at the show for the first time.

Maria Vitale, events manager from Vets Kitchen, said: “We’re really delighted at how busy it’s been. There’s been a real interest in our products and it’s great that pet owners are realising the benefits of advance nutrition pet food.”

The National Pet Show 2018 had opened to applications from exhibitors.
