This annual fur-filled show is moving to the ExCel centre in 2015 for a weekend of barking, jumping, stroking and shopping. The fair is aimed at both pet owners and anyone looking for advice on taking the plunge. To keep both animals and humans happy, the show is divided into different zones, and visitors can meet owners and breeders and get advice on care and training for whichever creature they're most interested in. Keep an eye out for the live rabbit show jumping, doggy dancing and duck herding, or watch some of the 'Superdogs Live' competition entrants strut their stuff. There are also vet talks from Channel 4 vet Noel Fitzpatrick, and more treats, toys and gadgets than you can shake a well-chewed stick at.

Ohhhhh, this is the place to go if you're an animal lover...and if you love your own animal!

I'd never been to the Pet Show before, so was really looking forward to seeing what they had to offer. It was held in the ExCeL London, which was packed as there were a number of exhibitions going on on the day. As you went into the Pet Show, you were greeted by the welcome desk and free booklets describing the events of the day. Amongst the exhibitors was PDSA animal hospital, who were giving talks and lots of information about dogs and cats in particular.

The Supervet Live! was also there. He put on a great show, it was packed with information and lots of laughs! Whilst a large portion of the exhibitors were aimed at dog lovers, there was a decent sized area for cat lovers and being a big cat lover, I of course made my way over there! They had a number of different, and BEAUTIFUL, breeds on show, including the Thai Lilac, Siamese and your everyday moggy... My heart practically melted! The popular pet food brands, IAMS and Royal Canin, were also there and I managed to get some treats for my own kitty at a bargain.

This exhibition literally had something for everyone: from parrots and ponies to lizards and donkeys! And if you weren't impressed by the animals, then the chocolate fountains and slushies certainly helped!

I had a great time and will probably truth this into an annual expedition!!!
