RSPCA Victoria’s first Healthy Pet Day event on the Mornington Peninsula is on Wednesday 31 January in Crib Point, with RSPCA experts providing free check-ups, dog vaccines, pet food, and advice on pet behaviours.
RSPCA Victoria community outreach manager Dr Lauren Roberts said Healthy Pet Days were a great way to provide pets with health checks.
“Our expert animal care team provides pet check-ups, dog vaccines, microchipping, flea and worm prevention treatment, behavioural advice, resources and pet food,” she said.
“We want to keep our pets happy and healthy for years to come, and local pet owners will have access to expert advice and the best possible service thanks to our friendly vets, vet nurses and animal behaviourists.”
RSPCA Victoria head of prevention Rebecca Cook said the day was aimed at supporting “positive pet ownership and strengthening bonds between families and their pets”.
“We believe in working together with Victoria’s communities, because we know it’s not always just about your pets, it’s about you too.”
Pet food company Royal Canin will provide pet food for some residents.

To access the free Healthy Pet Day services, attendees must be 18 years old or over, have a valid concession or health care card, and have proof of address in Mornington Peninsula Shire.
All cats attending must be in a carry cage and dogs must be on a lead.
Due to the national cat vaccine shortage, cat vaccines are not available at the event and every animal requires an appointment.
Services at this event will not be provided to breeders or litter rearers.
The RSPCA will be at Crib Point Community House in Park Road, from 1pm to 3pm.
