Open Day at Dave Cumber Vets

Open Day at Dave Cumber Vets to raise funds for a defibrillator at Link Park

Dave Cumber Vets moved into their new state of the art surgery at Link Park in Weymouth in November 2016, since then the team have been rushed off their feet looking after poorly animals, new clients and getting to grips with the new facilities at the surgery.

It has always been part of the plan to open the doors to the surgery to existing and new clients a “Behind the Scenes” Open Day at Dave Cumber Vets in Weymouth. The date has been set for the Open Day and it will be held on Sunday 13th August from 10am until 4pm.

Dave Cumber of Dave Cumber Vets said “This should be a very exciting day for the team, our clients and our animal patients.   It will give everyone a chance to have a good look behind the scenes at the new surgery to see and experience some of the new equipment and facilities as well as meeting our vets, nurses and other members of the team. As we are in the business of health and well-being, the team decided that Link Park really should have a lifesaving heart defibrillator installed on site, just in case anyone should need it, as most of the team at Dave Cumber Vets are trained to use a defibrillator. The defibrillator would be located at Dave Cumber Vets and we need to raise around £1500 for the equipment. It is hoped that we can raise some vital funds towards this at the Open Day.”

Activities for the Open Day at Dave Cumber Vets

There will be lots of things to do at the Open Day, outside activities will include the Wessex FM Roadshow with live broadcast by Dave Goulden  (9am – 1pm), pet merchandise, pet food and supplies, pet health checks and a new pet Lame detector mat. There will be demonstrations of  how to use the defibrillator plus how to administer CPR on humans and dogs. A Cake and Ice Cream stand plus a raffle to help raise funds for the Defibrillator. There will be lots of free parking plus tours of the surgery every 15 minutes, a free doggy park and crèche for animals whilst their owners take a look around the surgery.

Within the new £1million surgery visitors will be able to meet the team, attend “Pop up Clinics” which will include top tips on how to give your pet a pill, how to tell if your pet is ill and advice on dental care, health and well-being plus free pet weight checks.
