Bolsover District Council has organised mobile pet checks for animal lovers.

Dog owners across Bolsover District are being asked to check in and get some advice on pet health care as a mobile pet checking unit is touring the area in June.

An experienced veterinary nurse on board the PDSA unit, will give the animals check-ups which will cover their weight, eyes, teeth, ears, coat condition and general fitness.

In addition to the veterinary nurse, Bolsover District Council’s Dog Warden will be on hand to offer advice and promote health care issues associated with dogs and responsible pet ownership including what action you can take to prevent excessive dog barking. The Council will also provide a free microchipping service (courtesy of the Dogs Trust) while stocks last.

The Pet Check unit will be available on the following days and locations:

Wednesday 13th June, Shirebrook Market Place

Thursday 14th June, Clowne, Car park opposite Contact Centre

Friday 15th June, South Normanton, the Hub

Saturday 16th June, Shirebrook Market Place

Bolsover District Council Cabinet Member for the Environment, Councillor Dennis Kelly said: “This roadshow has proven extremely popular over the past couple of years and we want as many people as possible to come along and get some free expert advice.

“We are targeting the areas where there will be a lot of people so we can promote our important messages to as many as possible.”
