Vet charity PDSA is setting tails wagging with plans to visit Abronhill and Kilsyth as part of a national pet wellbeing tour.

PDSA vet nurses will be on board the charity’s PetCheck vehicle, carrying out free wellbeing checks for local dogs and giving advice on other pets.

Theyll be at Abronhill skate park (in the car park), on Thursday from 10am to 5pm; and at Burgreen Community Centre in Kilsyth from 9am to 4pm on Friday.

Local school pupils will also be given the chance to take part in free workshops, which aims to help all pets stay happy and healthy.

PDSA Vet Nurse Kiera Lawthers will check the health of each dog, including their weight, eyes, ears, coat and general fitness.

Microchipping, nail-clipping and ear-cleaning are offered free of charge if required, and Cats Protection neutering vouchers will also be available.

Kiera can also discuss dogs’ diet, behaviour, socialisation and living environment, and answer any questions, to help owners make the best choices for their pets.

Kiera said: “We know people love their pets and want the best for them, which is why we’re here to help.

“By offering free, friendly advice and support, we can help owners make small changes that can make a big difference to the health and happiness of pets.”

A visit last year revealed that nearly one in five dogs need a change to their diet.
