Health checks on dog day out
by David Simister

SKELMERSDALE residents are being urged to attend a dog-friendly event on June 21.

The borough council will be holding a responsible dog ownership event at the at Digmoor Community Resource Centre, on Birleywood.

Councillor Andrew Fowler, the council's portfolio holder for health and leisure, said: “The aim of the day is to provide owners with help and advice on responsible dog ownership.

”By providing a low-cost microchipping service, we hope that we can help reduce the number of stray dogs in West Lancs. It will also allow us to reunite any stray or lost dog with their owners. To be eligible for this service the dog must be at least 12 weeks old and be vaccinated.“

The council’s dog control officers be on hand from 10am to 4pm to provide information and advice about canine matters, as well as offering microchipping for £5 per dog.

Staff from the animal charity PSDA will also attend with the PetCheck roadshow. Veterinary nurses will be on hand to offer your four-legged friend free health checks and give advice on a range of issues including body condition, flea and worm treatments and all-round fitness.

More information about the dog control team can be found at or call 01695 577177.
