Grazia magazine: good for fashion news and beauty tips, bad for advice on breeding animals

I’ve written an article about the recent foray of Grazia magazine into dodgy advice on earning cash via breeding animals as a casual home business.

So why is a vet writing about a women’s magazine?

Well, in the latest UK edition, Grazia has taken an ill-judged foray into the world of pet breeding. The magazine includes a feature on easy ways to earn extra income, with someone called “Ella”, said to be an estate agent, enthusing about the ease with which she makes extra cash by breeding her Ragdoll cat and Shih Tzu dogs.

“Ella”, as well as the Grazia editorial team, clearly had no idea about the depth of feeling about irresponsible breeding. There has been a social media storm since the magazine was published.
