Meet SA's Top Pet Slimmers

Selecting the finalists has always been the toughest part of the competition. This year our finalists have been selected from the eligible entrants based on weight loss %, absolute kilos lost, quality of before and after photos, the pet's life story and owner’s testimonial that best demonstrate an ability to be an ambassador for Hill's.

The power now lies in the hands of a panel of judges who will spend the month of October making the tough choice of who they feel is most deserving of the Pet Slimmer Ambassador title. They will also select their 2nd and 3rd favourite pet. Meet our judges!
