to the Putney Animal Hospital
We provide a high quality 24-hour Veterinary
service for sick and injured owned, stray and wildlife animals. Treatment and
care is given to animals belonging to people who are on supplementary benefits
or low income who cannot afford private Veterinary fees and who live within the
M25 area. Stray pets and wildlife found within the M25 area are also treated at
Putney Hospital and then released or re-homed.
With eight wards, two operating
theatres, X-Ray, laboratory, dispensary and a 24-hour telephone service, customer
care is one of the top priorities - and that means owners as well as the animals!
weekday our clinics are open from 9am to 4pm, seeing over 40,000 outpatients a
year. At other times, the Vets and Nurses are available for emergency treatment.
stories have a happy ending! Because this cat was fitted with a microchip, he
was re-united with his owner after being missing for five weeks! |
The hospital admits over 20 stray cats a week, but not all the strays are cats.
There are birds, reptiles, amphibians and lots of small mammals - guinea pigs,
rabbits, rats, hamsters and ferrets. Wildlife and exotic casualties include foxes,
water birds, raptors, snakes and even the odd badger, seal and tarantula!
Like so much of Veterinary Nurses' work, nursing in the stray wards is particularly
rewarding. The injuries and illnesses are often very severe, requiring intensive
nursing and lots of TLC.
Dealing with animal welfare cases and working alongside
RSPCA Inspectors is also part of charity care. Finding new homes for these animals
is very hard, but the real challenge is nursing these often-neglected animals
back to good physical and psychological health.
Nurses say that discharging
an animal that has been nursed back to health is one of the best parts of the
