Actress and model Jorgie Porter took her rescue dog, Lady, for a pet ‘MOT’, and is encouraging fellow pet owners to take advantage of the free PetCheck service.
The former Hollyoaks star, who is also well known from her appearances on I’m A Celebrity… and Dancing On Ice, said the PDSA PetCheck tour was a fantastic way to help pets and owners across the UK.
Speaking after her four-year-old Bichon Frise Jack Russell cross was seen on board the PetCheck vehicle in Manchester and given a clean bill of health, Jorgie said, “PDSA’s PetCheck tour is a brilliant concept. It is completely free for owners to take their dogs along and
get a health check.
“Not only can you get great tips and advice on how to keep them healthy, but it can also help spot potential problems before they become too serious.
“My dog Lady means the world to me and her health is very important. I’d urge any dog owners to pay a visit to PetCheck if the tour is coming to a town near them.”
In addition to the free health ‘MOT’s’, there is also free nail clipping, ear cleaning and microchipping (which is now a legal requirement for all dogs), although donations are welcome. Cats Protection neutering vouchers are also available.
“We’re really grateful to Jorgie for giving our PetCheck tour a boost and it was lovely to meet Lady too,” said PDSA Vet Nurse Kylie Jones.
“We know people love their pets and want the best for them, which is why PDSA is here to help. We can offer free, friendly advice and support, helping owners to make small changes that often make big differences to the wellbeing of pets.”
