People in Gunnedah will be able to access free vet care next week with the Animal Welfare League’s mobile service coming to town.

The Animal Welfare League NSW’s Mobile Vet Truck (MVT) will be rolling into the Gunnedah Showground on Wednesday, 5 July, from 9am to 1pm, offering free health checks and microchipping, and free dog C3 vaccinations and cat F3 vaccinations.

Gunnedah Shire Council’s Manager of Community Safety Wade Berryman said Council had partnered with Animal Welfare League to bring the MVT to Gunnedah.

“I urge residents to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to take preventative action and protect their pets,” Mr Berryman said.

“It has been two years since the Mobile Vet Truck has been in town and we’re happy to partner with the Animal Welfare League NSW once again to make microchipping and vaccination services more accessible to our residents.

“The dog C3 vaccination protects against canine parvovirus, distemper and hepatitis viruses, and the cat F3 vaccination protects against Feline Panleukopaenia, Feline Rhinotracheitis, and Feline Calicivirus.”

Owners are asked to ensure cats are transported in a carrier cage and dogs are kept on a lead. Litters are not permitted, and services will be limited to three pets per household.

Residents are asked to bring a mobile device to sign in.

The Animal Welfare League Mobile Vet Truck will be at the Gunnedah Showground South Street entrance between 9am and 1pm on Wednesday, 5 July. No appointments are necessary.
