Free health check for dogs
Pet charity the PDSA is bringing its PetWise Tour to Fife next month, offering free health MoTs for dogs.
This year’s tour, which is supported by the players of People’s Postcode Lottery, will travel across the UK providing free health checks and offering expert advice.
A PDSA vet nurse will be on board one of the PetCheck vehicles at the following locations from 10am to 5pm: on Tuesday August 14 at the Park Road Centre, Park Road, Kirkcaldy; on Wednesday August 15 at Templehall Community Centre, Beauly Place, Kirkcaldy; on Thursday August 16 at Links Street Community Garden, Links Street, Kirkcaldy; and on Friday August 17 in Rossend Terrace Car Park, Burntisland.
PDSA vet nurse Emma Mcdonald said: “We know people love their pets and want the best for them, which is why PDSA is here to help.
“Thanks to 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 Fife.”
The specially developed PetWise MoT for every dog assesses the five elements pets need to be healthy and happy, known as welfare needs, which 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 a pet’s wellbeing.
