DOG owners are being invited to have their pets checked out when a charity roadshow comes to town next month.

The PDSA’s PetCheck van will be in Hartlepool from Tuesday, June 4, to Saturday, June 8, offering advice on general canine wellbeing.

A PDSA Vet Nurse will examine the weight, body-shape, teeth, eyes, coat and general fitness of canine visitors, and will also offer free expert advice about how to care for other pets.

Microchipping and nail clipping will be available at a low cost.

The veterinary charity will be at the following locations from 9am to 4pm:

Tuesday, June 4, Rift House Recreational Ground, Kingsley Avenue.

Wednesday, June 5, Seaton Carew Golf Club coach car park.

Thursday, June 6, Thornhill Allotments, end of Thornhill Gardens

Friday, June 7, Summerhill Country Park, off Catcote Road.

Saturday, June 8, King George V Playing Fields.

The PDSA’s PetCheck Tour is travelling across the country after carrying out a report that found that over 10 million pets are missing out on key health and welfare requirements.

PDSA senior veterinary surgeon Sean Wensley said: “These figures highlight the importance of helping owners to have a deeper understanding of their pet’s health and welfare needs and how to meet them.”
