TV vet Marc Abraham: Time to stop puppy farming

18 June 2014 Last updated at 10:26 BST

Campaigners are trying to get the government to change the law to ensure that dogs on sale are not mass produced in puppy farms, where there are claims about poor care for their welfare, health and happiness.

The Pup Aid #Wheresmum bid aims to ensure that puppies are kept with their mothers and not sold through pet shops, newspaper adverts, websites and private dealers.

Marc Abraham, a TV vet from Brighton, presents this authored film and calls on MPs to act.
