Veterinary students from the University of Liverpool are providing free health and wellbeing check-ups for the homeless hounds of Liverpool in partnership with The Big Issue North.
The charitable Trusty Paws clinic runs twice a month out of a drop-in centre and all treatment is carried out by vet students, under the supervision of a qualified vet. The clinics offer a friendly and informal environment where life-saving treatments can be provided freely to those most in need.
Veterinary student and Clinical Director Freya Townsend said: “The clinic has gone from strength to strength over the last two years and it’s great to see our hard work paying off. Our clients care about their dogs so much; it feels great to be able to offer help and support that bond.”
Trusty Paws provides preventative health-care including vaccinations, micro-chipping, flea and worm treatment, bedding and referrals for more complex issues. Providing vaccines is a priority as they protect against preventable diseases that can be deadly if the pet catches them. Student volunteers also advise owners on how to keep their dogs healthy under the most difficult of circumstances.
Trusty Paws runs drop-in clinics on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month, from 9.00am – 11:45am. Find out more about the organisation here: https://www.thetrustypawsclinic.co.uk/
