Vet charity PDSA is setting tails wagging with plans to visit Ballymena on Thursday, July 16, at the start of its two week ‘pet wellbeing’ tour of Northern Ireland.

In partnership with Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, the charity’s PetCheck vehicle will be on Larne Link Road, Ballymena, in the car park opposite KFC from 10am to 5pm.

PDSA vet nurses will be carrying out free wellbeing checks for local dogs and giving advice on other pets, as part of the charity’s mission 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 needed.

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. Cats Protection neutering vouchers will also be available.

Following the event in Ballymena, the tour will then visit a further 12 locations across Northern Ireland.

More information about the PetCheck tour is available on PDSA’s website.
