Blue Cross pet charity is offering discounted treatment for pet owners in Luton on a low income.
Icknield Veterinary Hospital on Brook Street will provide treatment and health check-ups on behalf of the charity for pets whose owners are on means-tested benefits.
Eligible pet owners should register now to avoid missing out. There is an annual registration fee of £22 per pet which includes the cost of vaccinations, microchipping where needed (now compulsory by law for dogs and recommended for cats), a health check and pet care advice. Treatment will also be provided on a contribution basis if the pet becomes sick or injured.
Reduced cost preventative care, including neutering and flea and worm treatments are also available at significantly reduced prices at the clinic. Check bluecross.org.uk/luton for opening times and catchment area postcodes.
Pet owners will be able to register one pet initially - including cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and gerbils.
Richard Casey, Blue Cross clinical development manager, said: “We are very excited about this new partnership with Icknield Veterinary Hospital. We hope the service reassures local pet owners on a low income that their pet can be treated if they become sick or are injured.”
