DOES your pet have star quality?

If so, the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) would like to hear from you.

The college, which is based in Hawkshead Lane, Brookmans Park, is running a Pet Factor competition to find Hertfordshire's cutest domestic animals.

There are four categories - namely dog, cat, horse and 'other' - and the winners will feature on a new series of RVC postcards.

Steph Mitchell, fundraising manager at the RVC Animal Care Trust, said: "If anyone has a paparazzi-keen puppy or a glamorous guinea pig we would be delighted to enter them in the competition.

"If we think your animal has the 'Pet Factor' they will feature on postcards to our regular donors and to many of our clients whose kind support helps us raise funds for the college's hospitals and treat more than 8,000 dogs and cats a year."
