Thursday, October 4 is World Animal Day and the Animal Control Centre will mark the occasion with an Open Day focussing on The Nutritional Needs of Your Animals.
It will be held at the Centre’s Black Rock Headquarters and will run from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
In explaining the reason for the theme, Animal Control Officer, Curtis Thompson, pointed out that his officers had noticed that many owners fed an animal the same things over its life span, but young animals, like puppies, had specific dietary requirements.
During the day, a number of veterinarians will be on hand to answer any questions that dog owners, animal lovers, kennel operators and commercial breeders might have and staff of the Centre will highlight the functions of the department and facilitate the licensing process.
There will also be a number of informational booths and products displays from Robert’s Manufacturing, Agrochemicals, Pedigree Dog Food and Pet Express. (BGIS)
