Maxi Zoo is continuing our ever popular Birthday celebrations this March. Our Free Pet Health checks ensure your pet is the best that they can be, and with our face painters, giveaways, refreshments and music, it’s a day out for the whole family!!

Pet owners and their pets are in for a treat at the Maxi Zoo store in Carlow on Saturday March 29th where a host of free events will take place to celebrate the store’s birthday.

The store at the Four Lakes Retail Park is celebrating the occasion by offering a free Pet Health Check to customers who visit the store between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.. The first twenty dog owners to visit the store with their pet during this time will also receive free goodie bags for their pet.

Maxi Zoo’s team of pet experts will also be joined by veterinary nurse Catherine Lennon from Vet Care in providing local pet owners with all they need to know to keep their family pet fit and healthy. Vet Care will also provide a pet micro-chipping service in the store on the day for €20.

Visitors to the store can avail of free nutritional and weight management advice for their dog. Free samples and advice will also provided on how to care for their dog’s teeth.

Families interested in re-homing an abandoned dog will also have an opportunity to meet with the Carlow SPCA and a number of animals in their care. It is hoped that these meetings will help families to begin the process of finding a pet that is right for them.

“The free health check is a great way to ensure that your family pet is in the best of health,” said Alice Cross, Executive Director of Maxi Zoo Ireland.

“All of the in-store activities planned for the day are geared towards providing local pet owners with expert advice on how to provide their pet with the best care, nutrition and training,” she said.

“Customers can learn how to manage their dog’s weight, how to groom their dog so that it always looks its best and how to teach their dog a new trick or two,” added Alice.

Maxi Zoo’s team of trained in-store groomers will provide free nail trimming and grooming tips and customers can also avail of great discounts on grooming products purchased on the day. Many special offers on other pet products will also be available on the day.
