We are delighted to announce that after a successful installation at our Ellesmere Port and Shrewsbury surgeries we are continuing to work in partnership with leading charity, PDSA. The new Pet Care membership scheme will officially launch at the Blackburn surgery on September 2nd, 2019.
The PDSA Pet Care scheme is an exclusive membership that is open to eligible pet owners who are in receipt of Housing Benefit, Council Tax Support or Universal Credit with Housing Benefit and who live in postcodes BB1 – BB6. Those owners who are eligible for the scheme will have access to Animal Trust’s reduced-cost veterinary care services, plus a host of other additional benefits.
Owen Monie, Director General at Animal Trust says; ‘’Animal Trust uniquely offers free consultations to everyone and treats patients from all walks of life and I’m thrilled to be bringing PDSA Pet Care to our Blackburn surgery. By providing this area with access to the scheme it means that even more owners can have access to our high standard of care.’’
For £4.50 per month or £54 a year, PDSA Pet Care scheme provides members with a host of veterinary benefits, including:
- One vet health consultation per year *
- One vaccination or booster every year, including a pet wellbeing MOT or health check.
