Dog owners across Bolsover District and North East Derbyshire District are being given the chance to get their dog microchipped and receive pet health advice for free as a mobile pet checking unit is touring the area in April.
The two councils have joined forces with the PDSA Petcheck Roadshow again to offer dog wellbeing check-ups, nail clipping and ear cleaning and advice – all free of charge and undertaken by an experienced veterinary nurse.
In addition to the veterinary nurse, the Councils Dog Warden will also be on hand to provide free microchipping to dogs - something which has been compulsory for all dogs since 2016.
Our Dog Warden will also be offering responsible dog ownership advice, canine behavioural advice and giving out free poop scoop bags at each of the roadshows.
The Roadshows will take place at:
- The Hub, Shiners Way, South Normanton DE55 2AA on 24 April 2018 - 9am to 4pm
- Kenning Park, Holmgate Road, Clay Cross S45 9PH on 25 April 2018 - 9am to 4pm
- Hornthorpe Road, Eckington S21 4DS on 26 April 2018 - 9am to 4pm
- Shirebrook Market Place, Market Street, Shirebrook NG20 8AA on 27 April 2018 - 9am to 4pm
We have been running the roadshows for a number of years now and an average of 200 dogs receive free microchips and 120 receive free pet health checks during the course of the four days.
The Petcheck roadshow would also over to see any puppies for their first wellbeing check, but if they are younger than eight-weeks old, leave them at home with their mum and pop along for advice.
