A health farm has opened for pets and house plants in Brazil.

People going away on holiday can leave their pets and plants at the spa and know they’ll be looked after.

Pets left at the centre, in Sau Paulo, have a daily routine which includes walking on a treadmill, swimming in a pool and running around the garden.

Owner Cristina Balbuena told Jornal Hoje: “Many people call in the middle of a trip to know how their loved ones are doing so we put the phone near the animal’s ear.”

The plant spa specialises in orchids and ensures plants get exactly the right amount of food, water and sunlight.
