We love hearing success stories from our clients, and here is a lovely letter from Charlie’s owner Dawn, telling his weight loss story...

Charlie was rescued in 2016 and was a rather overweight Springer Spaniel with mobility issues & large fatty lumps. His joints were stiffening & he wasn't enjoying life as much as he should.


On January 24th 2018 we walked into the brand new Pennard Vets Langley Park branch, just before its official opening on 14th February.


We were greeted by very happy & knowledgeable staff, who very quickly identified that Charlie would benefit from a weight management plan & regular check-ups, as he was about 5kg over the healthy weight for his age (nearly 12 years old) & breed.


He started the Hills “Metabolic + Mobility” complete food plus the prescribed Metabolic treats & we haven't looked back. Veterinary Nurse Amanda has been amazing & Charlie actually heads for the scales when we have our appointments now. 


From the first consultation & advice given, Charlie has gone from an unhealthy 25.7kg dog with mobility issues, to a very respectable & sprightly dog with a svelte figure, currently weighing in at 20.4kg. In just 6 months he has been transformed from a rotund little dog to a Sprightly Springer!


Currently, he is very near to his ideal weight & has just enjoyed a very active holiday, swimming & walking on the Cornish Coast.


I cannot praise the Sarla & her staff at Langley Park for their kindness & dedication to looking after Charlie's welfare & helping him regain his slim figure & renewed zest for life.


Kind Regards,

Dawn E 


  1. With sensible eating for both myself & Charlie (still allowing low fat treats) I too have lost over 2 stone & recommend that a family overhaul of diet and exercise is great for both dogs & owners!
