10 Mar PDSA is bringing its PetWise Tour to Tendring this month
PDSA is bringing its PetWise Tour to Tendring this month, offering free wellbeing MOTs to local dogs. The visit is part of the leading vet charity’s mission to help every pet live a happy, healthy life.
A PDSA vet nurse will be on board one of the charity’s PetWise vans at the following locations from 10am to 5pm:
- Monday 23 March – Community Centre car park, Maldon Way, Clacton, CO16 7PA
- Tuesday 24 March – Promenade Way car park, Brightlingsea, CO7 0HH
- Wednesday 25 March – Jaywick Community Resource Centre, Brooklands Gardens, CO15 2JP
- Thursday 26 March – Wellington Road car park, Harwich, CO12 3DT
The PetWise Tour is supported by the players of People’s Postcode Lottery, and will travel across the UK providing free dog health checks and offering expert pet care advice.
PDSA Vet Nurse Louise Chapman will deliver PDSA’s specially developed ‘PetWise’ MOT for dogs. This assesses the five elements pets need to be healthy and happy, known as the welfare needs. These are diet, environment, companionship, behaviour and health. A simple traffic light system gives each pet a score, and owners receive a personalised action plan on how to improve their pet’s wellbeing.
Additional services including nail clipping and ear cleaning are available free of charge and microchipping (which is now a legal requirement for all dogs) is available for a small fee.
PDSA Vet Nurse Louise said: “We know people love their pets and want the best for them, which is why PDSA is here to help. Thanks to support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery we can offer free, friendly advice and support, helping owners to make small changes that often make big differences to the wellbeing of pets in Tendring.”
