pet owners are invited to bring their cats and dogs into a local vets’ surgeries to receive a free oral care check up.
West Mount Vets in Todmorden and Mytholmroyd are offering the appointments throughout June.
A spokesperson said: “A frighteningly high number of our pets have infections in their mouths and are in urgent need of dental treatment. Our pets are generally not good at letting us know they are suffering with tooth ache.
“The nerve supply to cats and dogs’ teeth is the same as our own so there is no reason to suppose that they do not feel the same level of dental pain as we do with tooth disease.”
Call 01706 814110 or 01422 889970 to book a check up.
