The PDSA has unveiled a special “vet squad” to help protect vulnerable pets. This group of pet well-being champions includes more than 50 vets and nurses based across the UK.
The new team will educate pet owners about preventive health and encourage uptake of thousands of vaccinations, neutering operations, parasite treatments and microchips to safeguard dogs and cats.
Nicola Martin, PDSA’s head of pet health and welfare, said: “Thanks to the fantastic generosity of players of People’s Postcode Lottery this dedicated team of vets and nurses can do even more to promote preventive care across the UK.
“Their support means we can have a pet well-being ‘champion’ in every single PDSA pet hospital – making a huge difference in tackling some of the biggest welfare issues facing our nation’s pets.
“This new funding will help us to save more pets’ lives by educating pet owners about the importance of preventing the preventable.”
