The Pets’n’Vets Family is set to feature on the popular CBeebies series, Ferne and Rory’s Vet Tales, which sees animal experts Ferne Corrigan and Rory Crawford help children understand that, just like us, animals can get sick and need help.
Covering real life vet surgeries across the country, the upcoming series will feature three Pets’n’Vets vets, across three episodes: Emma Moran treating Bon Bon the guinea pig with lumps; Valerie Allan assessing Chewie an overweight cat, and Nicolas Moura looking at Wylie, a dog with allergies.
Emma said: “It was great to meet Ferne and Rory, Bon Bon and his family. We love seeing all pets and hope our participation in Vet Tales can highlight how much we can do for guinea pigs. Bon Bon was lovely to work with and is a real star.”
Valerie Allan said: “It was great to meet Ferne and Rory and to be able to impart some practical advice to cat owners about what simple steps they can take to manage their pets’ weight and health.”
Nicolas Moura added: “Dog allergies are more commonplace than many pet owners realise and Ferne and Rory were interested in highlighting this issue and how it can best be treated. And Wylie certainly seemed to enjoy being filmed; indeed I think he could be getting a taste for stardom.”
Pets’n’Vets Family partner Oliver Jackson added: “As well as being entertaining, Ferne and Rory’s Vet Tales is very educational and, as such, dovetails nicely with our Junior Vets Club. This club, which was a key feature of the recent Dog Lover Show offers a free programme of fun and educational events about pet care and health.
“The Junior Vets Club is an important way for us to give something back to our local community by helping to teach kids to become better pet owners at an early stage. The intention is that it will lead into our long-established Pixie Programme, whereby kids from 14 years old help out in the veterinary practice on a regular basis – an increasingly important step into getting into vet school.”
