CUMNOCK’S award winning vet is teaching residents how to save their pet’s life in crisis.

Crossriggs Veterinary Clinic hosted a successful first aid evening to help animal owners learn life-saving skills.

They gave out free goodie bags, bandaging kits and first aid booklets to all who attended.

Vet Agatha Lowe arranged the course along with a charity coffee morning to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Both events were well attended with clients quick to throw their support behind the family run clinic.

The pet medics can get to know their clients and animals well as they run their services 24-hours a day.
