You’ll love this major pet show

TV vet Marc Abraham will be a star attraction at this year’s LovePets Show.

An active promoter of responsible pet-ownership, Marc has appeared on some of the biggest animal TV shows, including BBC1’s Animal Rescue Live and Channel 4’s It’s Me Or the Dog and The Paul O’Grady Show. Marc was recently awarded the national veterinary industry’s prestigious Special Recognition Award and voted the UK’s Favourite Vet.

Thousands are expected to flock to the indoor Peterborough Exec exhibition centre at the East of England Showground for the two-day show on October 29-30, organised and supported by leading newspaper publisher Johnston Press. The event will again be heavily promoted by the group’s huge stable of leading regional papers and websites.

Other guests at the show include dog trainer to the stars, Karen Wild. Karen has been described as the ‘rock star of dog training’. She has numerous celebrity clients, including Celebrity Big Brother star Nicola Tappenden, TV presenter and journalist Dawn Porter and TV presenter Davina McCall.

LovePets will be supported by an event brochure, in-paper competitions, website advertising and the event’s dedicated website, www.lovepets.me.uk. This has the potential to reach more than 2.5 million readers and over one million website visitors.

Attractions at the show include The British Rabbit Council, who will display up to 20 rabbits, the Cats Protection League, featuring a special cat re-homing scheme, and DK Reptiles, allowing you to get up close and personal with snakes, lizards and giant spiders in the haunted reptile house. The show will also feature the popular petting zoo, where children can meet all sorts of animals including a family of raccoons. Birds of prey will include the stunning eagle owl.

Family tickets (two adults, up to three children under 16) are £18 on the door or £12 if pre-booked online (www.lovepets.me.uk), saving 50 per cent. The organisers will donate 10 per cent of all ticket revenue to nominated animal charities.

The Peterborough Exec exhibition centre at the East of England Showground is close to the A1 and is well signposted. Parking for the event is free.
