This summer will see Lintbells, manufacturers of premium natural joint supplement YuMOVE, take to the road visiting a host of dog-based events across the UK.
Lintbells want to encourage dogs and their owners to ‘choose an active life’. The team, which includes a veterinary professional at each venue, will also be raising awareness about the importance of healthy joints in dogs and how to spot stiff joints. Pet owners will be encouraged to visit their vet to talk to them about any concerns identified on the day.
The events being visited include: Paws in the Park in Ardingly, West Sussex on 13th-14th May, This Morning Live at the Birmingham NEC on 18th-21st May, The Great North Dog Walk in South Shields on 4th June, Strutt your Mutt in Beccles, Suffolk on 11th June, Dogfest North in Northwich, Cheshire on 17th-18th June, Dogfest South in Stevenage, Hertfordshire on 24th-25th June and Bark in the Park in Southport on 23rd September.
As well as various demonstrations and help to enable dog owners to perform regular visual mobility checks at home, there will be the chance to learn more about Lintbells YuMOVE and a selection of YuMOVE Dog samples to take home and try.
Dogs will also be able to show off their skills in a specially designed mobility course designed to identify loss of flexibility or impaired joint function. The Lintbells team will be on hand to support owners, offer tips and advice and to talk through any concerns about dog health.
John Davies, co-founder of Lintbells, said: “Mobility problems form a significant part of the case load for many practices but we know that many more cases of impaired mobility are simply not recognised or attributed to old age. If we can show dog owners how to maintain joint health and recognise when their dog needs help that’s got to be good for the pet, good for the owner and good for practices too. We encourage vets or nurses in the area to come along and see what we are doing to raise awareness of mobility issues and we hope that as a result of the activity they see more clients coming through the doors asking for the help they need.”
