Vet charity PDSA will be back on the road in March, with its purpose-built PetCheck vehicles.
The charity has travelled the length and breadth of the country every year since 2002 and has carried 66,000 free health MOTs for the nation’s dogs over the last 14 years.
A specially-trained team of Community Vet Nurses supports the tour and, to date, have reached nearly 90,000 people with expert pet advice, and answered over 20,000 questions about pet care.
Sue Bartlett, Head Community Vet Nurse for PDSA, explained: “We know that people love their pets, but our research shows that owners don’t always fully understand their pets’ needs and how to meet them.
“As a result, our pets may not be as happy and healthy as we think. So by offering free, friendly advice and support at a grass-roots level, we help owners to make small changes that can make a big difference to the wellbeing of their pets.”
