Scales donation helps support military veterans with service-related mental health conditions



Marsden Weighing Group (UK) - Marsden Weighing Group has donated a large veterinary weighing scale to a charity providing dogs to ex-servicemen suffering from the effects of mental health.

South Yorkshire based Marsden gave the V-250 Veterinary Scale to Veterans With Dogs, a UK registered charity who provide dogs to British veterans with ‘invisible injuries.’

The V-250 is a scale used by veterinary surgeries in the UK and worldwide for administering treatment and ensuring dogs are a healthy weight.

Julie Morrish, of Veterans With Dogs, said: “The scale will make a big difference to us for being able to fully assess our dogs for their weight and monitor our growing puppies.”

“The scale will be used on an ongoing weekly basis as part of our health checks to monitor each dog placed with veterans.”

Marsden Managing Director, Richard Black, added: “The Marsden V-250 is the ideal weighing scale for large dogs, with its 250kg capacity. Plus it's simple to use and has high accuracy.

“We recently donated 12 of our scales to Battersea Dogs Home, and are pleased to be offering our support to another great cause. We’re delighted to see the scale is proving a success with the charity, the owners - and the dogs!”

Last month, Marsden published the results of a survey that suggested more than half of UK pets are overweight.

The overall aim for Veterans With Dogs is to improve the quality of life for veterans through the companionship of dogs and other pets.
