Pet charity PDSA has unveiled two new PetCheck vehicles, ready to welcome the nation’s pets.

PDSA VN Amy Henson welcomes a patient on to one of the new vehiclesThe charity’s team of community and education VNs travel the country in the vehicles – which are kitted out with consulting tables and veterinary equipment – conducting free canine PetChecks and giving owners advice on pet health and welfare.

The two vehicles were donated by long-standing PDSA benefactor Robert Breckman. Mr Breckman funded the charity’s first pet hospital in Romford, along with his wife Julie, after Mrs Breckman was diagnosed with a terminal illness and the pair decided to leave a “living will” for the charity.

Nicola Martin, PDSA’s head of pet health and welfare, said: “It is with enormous gratitude we celebrate our PetCheck programme with the arrival of two new vehicles donated by our friend Robert Breckman.
 
“Julie and Robert Breckman’s love of animals and support of PDSA has not only made the PetCheck programme a reality, it has now ensured PetCheck will continue to tour, carrying on our mission to safeguard the well-being of pets right across the nation long into the future.”

The charity’s first PetCheck vehicle was created in 1921 by converting on old caravan into a horse-drawn mobile clinic, which travelled Britain with an on-board vet to treat animals in need.
