In the Community

Being an integral part of the community means we are dedicated to supporting local pet related causes.

We love to get involved – being a local, independent community vet is central to our ethos. We regularly participate in all pet related aspects in the local community, from organising the Alsager Fun Dog show, to cake sales and completing tough mudders to raise money for local animal charities.

Dog Shows

As part of our continued commitment to charitable causes, we have recently introduced a Dogshow Roadshow. The Roadshow is available, free of charge, for local charities, community groups, schools and associations and is a great way of raising funds.

We will:

We are limited to 20 roadshows per year on a first come, first served basis and subject to our staff availability.

Alsager Dog Show

For the past two years, the team at Alsager Vet Centre have organised a fantastic fun dog show. Keep your eyes posted to our events page for more details and information about our activities in 2018.

 

School/Nursery Visits

Our school and nursery visits are fun-filled events and great for getting children interested in all things pet related. We can tailor our visits to your requirements or arrange interactive activities where we can get the children to find the microchip on our toy dog, or bandage his leg. We can show them ‘interesting’ things in jars – if they’re not squeamish and let them look at x-rays (you wouldn’t believe what dogs swallow), and even dress up as a vet.

We have worksheets for various abilities and ages and every child gets a sticker. Teachers will find that they are able to do a lot of follow up work and creative play following a visit from a vet. If you want to set up a ‘play’ vet clinic in the school or nursery following our visit we usually have some posters and veterinary materials to hand to help it look more realistic.

 

Career Fairs

A career in the veterinary industry can be an extremely rewarding, but demanding role. Our presence at School/College careers fairs can be a great way to educate those interested in the veterinary care all about the highs and the lows. We can talk to students about the various job roles at a veterinary practice, from Kennel Nurse right through to Vet, the work entailed, likely pay, qualifications and training needed.
