The Pets’n’Vets Family, the network of veterinary practices with surgeries around Glasgow and surrounding areas, has backed the launch of a Member’s Bill to the Scottish Parliament aimed at calling a halt to puppy farming.

Ross Allan, an award-winning RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery at the award-winning Roundhouse Veterinary Hospital, part of The Pets’n’Vets Family, said: “We welcome and support the proposal for improving dog breeding/number of litters a breeder can produce within a 12-month period before being required to hold a breeding licence.

“This bill offers sensible and practical proposals that should help create a better informed and more humane process for the sale and purchase of puppies.”
