A day of animal fun

A CHILDREN’S pet club was put on in Portishead to teach youngsters about the best way to care for their animals.

Vale Vets invited children to its base in Beach Road West to find out about their favourite animals on October 26.

During a session about dogs, the youngsters learned about the benefits of vaccinations and other treatments and also enjoyed checking the microchip readings of visiting canines.

They were also taught the best way to groom a dog, with the help of Katie the Shih Tzu, and about the best ways to socialise a puppy, with the help of Drew.
