Free dog check in Sidmouth

DOG owners in Sidmouth can get a free health check for their pooches next month.

The canine once-over and pet advice is due to a recent collaboration between the PDSA and East Devon District Council.

Checks will include body condition and weight, teeth and gums, eyes and ears, coat condition and general fitness.

Microchipping, nail clipping, anal gland expression and ear cleaning will also be on offer.

There is also the chance to learn about the animal welfare needs.

Dogs and their owners should go to the Ham cark park on Tuesday, July 2, from 9am to 4pm.

An appointment system may be in operation.
