The Pet Show has teamed up with Medivet, the Veterinary Partnership, to offer visitors to the show unparalleled free access to qualified vets.
The Medivet team will be bringing Simon Pudsey, head vet and partner at Medivet, Coventry, as well as other members of the team, who will offer visitors who bring their canine companions a free and professional ‘Dog MOT’.
The health check will be available on the Medivet stand at the show, which takes place on 20 to 21 July at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire. The aim will be to give a broad overview of a dog’s health, highlighting any potential issues and recommending further consultation if necessary.
The Medivet stand at the Warwickshire-based show will also feature the opportunity for budding young vets to try out their skills on a six-foot teddy bear. Children will be invited to don vet uniforms and perform an ‘operation’ on their ‘patient’, who will of course also be closely attended by qualified professionals.
Erica Starling, marketing manager for Medivet commented: “The aim of the ‘Operate on Teddy’ area of the stand is to increase engagement and involvement in the profession among younger visitors.”
Erica added:We’re really looking forward to what promises to be one of the show’s most engaging exhibits. Medivet’s dedication to both passing on best practice to consumers and working hard to inspire the next generation of vets is great to see and we’re delighted they are bringing their hard-working professionals along with them.”
The Pet Show is set to feature more animals, exhibitors and displays than any other multi-pet event in the UK. The 21,000 square metre exhibition space will be home to over 20,000 pet lovers and will feature stands by some of the biggest names in the pet world including Royal Canin, The British Horse Society and Botanica International.
