This seminar will shed light on protecting animals from cruelty and best practices on looking after your pet. PDSA is celebrating it’s 100 year aniversary this year. Their ethos is saving, protecting and healing pets. They are dedicated to improving pet wellbeing in three very special ways – by educating owners, preventing disease and carrying out life-saving operations. In the Aston branch alone, they have served and treated over 9,500 pets in 2017. Every year, the dedicated teams at their 48 Pet Hospitals work tirelessly to provide 2.7 million veterinary treatments – including 440,000 preventative treatments. This helps over 470,000 much-loved pets and brings peace of mind to 300,000 owners. PDSA has found that UK pet owners are failing to meet the health and welfare needs of over millions of cats, dogs and rabbits. Whilst there have been some changes in recent years such as better diets for rabbits and increasing levels of preventive care, the state of our pet nation’s health and wellbeing could still be greatly improved. As the UK’s leading veterinary charity, PDSA want to identify welfare issues and do all they can to improve the physical health and mental wellbeing of pets.
