The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

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.
