As part of our moral veterinary obligations, our clinics spend considerable time, money and resources attending to wildlife.
We see all sorts of wildlife from sleepy lizards, blue tongues, kangaroos and wallabies to magpies, galahs, seahawks, frogs, eagles and other birds.
Some have been hit by cars, some tangled in fishing line and others have even been injured by lawnmowers.
Our vets have x-rayed and pinned limbs, removed hooks and line, cleaned wounds, sutured skin and given medicines to all sorts of creatures which have been returned to health and released.
Smaller fledgling birds, et cetera, which need handraising are passed onto carers for feeding and rehab until release.
Our clinics do not charge for accepting and treating wildlife.
