Overweight dogs going on diets in Kent and Sussex

Help

When 12-stone Alfie arrived at an RSPCA centre in Kent he was struggling to walk and could not walk more than a few paces.

Staff at the Leybourne centre have put Alfie on a diet and exercise programme.

The Dogs Trust in East Sussex has had similar cases, including a pair of overweight dachshunds whose stomachs drag on the ground when they walk.
