On Sunday 13th August, Dave Cumber Vets will be hosting a “Behind the Scenes” Open Day from 10am until 4pm at the Weymouth surgery located at Link Park, Chickerell Link Road, Weymouth.

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 human 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 human 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.”

The day will begin at 10am with Wessex broadcasting live from the Weymouth surgery.   Wessex FM will also be hosting their popular “Crack the Safe” game where visitors could win a 12 months membership to the Dave Cumber Vets pet health care plan.
There are lots of things for visitors to do during the day and behind the scenes tours of the surgery will take place every 30 minutes from 11am with a quiz at the end of the tour. A free doggy park and crèche for animals to relax in will be available to allow owners take a look around the 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 wellbeing plus free pet weight checks.
There will also be an opportunity to have Pet Portraits taken and to enter the raffle and a free prize draw.  Stalls will include, Pet merchandise, Pet food and supplies, ice creams and homemade cakes and free dog microchip checks.   
Rebecca Wyatt, registered physiotherapist will also be at the Open Day giving animal demonstrations at 12noon and 2pm and the Cats Protection society will be on hand with a large stall of goodies and information for cat lovers

Dave Cumber went on to say “The overall objective of the Open Day is to welcome existing and new customers from Weymouth and Dorchester to view the new surgery at Link Park.   We also want to raise funds for the Link Park human defibrillator.  Please come along and take a look Behind the Scenes at Dave Cumber Vets.”
