Each month we introduce you a pet of the month which we think you’ll find interesting. Maybe for its condition, its bravery or perhaps just for its character.

Do you think your pet deserves to be recognised as Orchard Vets pet of the month?

To be considered please email us at info@ovg.co.uk explaining why you think he or she is deserving, a recent photo (max 5mb in .jpg or .png format), a short biography and your pet’s favourite activity or place. Sadly, we won’t be able to publish all requests and there aren’t any prizes, only bragging rights should your pet be chosen!
