National Pet Show returns to NEC

Ultimate day out for animal lovers of all ages back in Birmingham.

It’s time to let the cat out of the bag… the National Pet Show, sponsored by Petsurance from The PDSA, is back for its sixth year. It returns to the NEC on the Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd November.

Bigger, better and furrier than ever, The National Pet Show will showcase so much more than just pups and pussycats. Tagging along will be everything from reptiles to rabbits, ponies to parrots and goldfish to guinea pigs, just to start.

It’s fun for all the family as animal lovers great and small can learn about a myriad of species and breeds – as well as getting the chance to stroke them and take selfies with them along the way.

There’ll be enthralling educational talks from experts plus ongoing animal demonstrations while the displays will have visitors clapping, cheering, and even joining in.

There’ll be a special focus on seldom-seen ‘vulnerable’ breeds too: those in danger of dying out. It’s all about creating awareness, showing would-be owners how to look after them, and hopefully pulling them back from the brink.

For the pet – or the owner – who has everything, there’s some serious Christmas shopping on offer. Amazing gift ideas will be on display, from “stuff you need, to stuff you didn’t even know existed”. The Marketplace area will be stocking filler heaven, with opportunities to pick up personalised treats for animals or animal lovers alike.
