Vanish: The Headline Sponsors at The London Pet Show

With so many pet owners in the UK that own carpets, it's a good job this year's headline sponsors of The London Pet Show are Vanish! Along with a stand at the show, Vanish will be exclusively launching their new Vanish Power spray Pet carpet and upholstery spray. This specially formulated product has been created to remove tough pet stains and odours left behind on your carpet. The powerful formula discourages pets from resoiling in the same area whilst the Oxi Action formula removes tough stains such as pet faeces and urine.

Animal experts are on hand to answer any of your pet-related questions and there will be lots of great deals on gadgets and goodies for your pets that you wouldn't find in the shops.
