Pet owners in Bourke are being urged to make the most of a mobile vet service which will be set up at Renshaw Oval today.

The Animal Welfare League will be bringing the mobile clinic to Bourke and Cobar after visiting Lightning Ridge on Wednesday, offering free general pet health checks, free microchipping, and free vaccinations.

Animal Welfare League CEO, Stephen Albin, said the visit to the far west was part of a tour of remote communities across NSW.

“Our mobile vet clinic is the world’s biggest animal care truck, a fully functioning vet clinic supported by the NSW government to visit 21 regions per year,” Mr Albin said.

“It’s a B-double with two operating tables, animal storage facilities and all the equipment required for animal care and treatment.

“We can’t do de-sexing because we can’t get a licence as a mobile truck, but we are working with the government on that.

“We can do everything else - precautionary measures, vaccinations and everything else associated with a vet clinic,” Mr Albin said.
