Last week the ASA (Advertising Standard Authority) made a landmark ruling after a customer lodged a complaint on misleading advertising, and a well-known national pet insurance provider was ordered to immediately withdraw their ad.  This is a breakthrough for pet care, giving voice to what we have been fighting to come to light for some […]
