The People's Dispensary for Sick Animals is launching a pilot scheme offering preventative treatments for pets at subsidised rates. The treatments will be available in the new year on an 'accessible' fee basis to eligible clients at selected Pet Aid hospitals across Britain. The charity's research shows that many clients simply don't take up the offer of preventative treatments from private practices, but it hopes that the lower costs will act as an incentive. If the trial is successful, a roll-out plan will be prepared for next autumn. PDSA director of veterinary services, Jan McLoughlin, said: "The call for this extended PDSA service has come from both our veterinary staff and our clients. This scheme will extend our services in a way that is sustainable for the charity and affordable to clients."
