Tesco Bank brings National Pet Month to a Tesco store near you

24 March 2017 By David McCreadie

Unsure about how to brush your dog’s teeth? Want to know how to treat your cat for fleas? Owning a pet can be extremely rewarding, but it is also a huge responsibility. At Tesco Bank, we understand how important our customers pets are to them and that’s why we are supporting this year’s National Pet Month.

As part of our commitment to National Pet Month, we are holding a series of Pet Roadshows at Tesco stores across the country.  These roadshows will provide practical demonstrations led by vets on topics such as cleaning your pet’s teeth, grooming your pet and treating your pet for fleas. They will also offer a valuable opportunity to ask questions on all things pet related.

At each of the roadshows, customers will receive a great goody bag filled with pet treats including IAMS dry dog or cat food, Pedigree Dentastix, Bob Martin cat litter tray liners and Tesco Bank branded food bowls.

As well as the chance to pick up some great pet care hints and tips, customers at our roadshows will have the opportunity to meet the lovely dogs (and people) from some local pet rescue centres who will be on hand to talk about the responsibilities of pet ownership and pet rehoming. They will also be fundraising on the day.

We will be at the following Tesco stores between 10am and 2pm and would encourage all customers and their four legged friends to come along.
