Lots of furry friends visited a library for a free health check last week.

Welfare charity The Dogs Trust ran a Checkup and Chip Event in Saltcoats Library on Monday, January 3.

It was a chance for your pooch to get a basic health check, nail clip and weight check.

Microchipping and advice on how to update your details was also available.

The basic health checks will cover eyes, ears, teeth & gums, coat and skin condition.

Kenneth Gibson, MSP for Cunninghame North, was there to support the event.

He said: “It has been a fantastic day, meeting Dogs Trust staff and finding out more about the wider work of the charity and its community engagement initiatives. This is such a valuable service to offer as a way of keeping the public informed about the responsibilities of being a dog owner and safeguarding the wellbeing of the nation’s pets.

“Passionate dog owners will agree that their pets are valued members of their family and it is important that we give them the best life we possibly can. I’m looking forward to supporting Dogs Trust further, in a bid to help try and make this a reality for all dogs.”

Jennifer Terris, campaigns manager for Dogs Trust in Scotland, said: “The purpose of our community roadshow events is to help ensure more dogs remain in happy homes by providing valuable and practical advice and support to dog owners.
