Last year, Marsden donated two weighing scales to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. The donation of the V-150s, which are now being used to weigh new arrivals at the shelter, led to Marsden visiting Battersea at the end of last year.
It was when we visited Battersea that we realised how important veterinary scales are for them on a day to day basis. More and more obese pets are arriving at Battersea, which means stricter diets, more exercise - and regular weigh-ins to track weightloss progress.
Doctors Worldwide and Marsden Weighing Group are delighted to announce a partnership to help support efforts to tackle undernutrition amongst vulnerable children.
Undernutrition leads to the deaths of around 3 million children a year, mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Doctors Worldwide is an established medical charity that provides primary healthcare services to some of the most marginalized people in developing countries, and has worked in Kenya since 2011.
