WET NOSE ANIMAL CLINIC
Wet Nose Animal Rescue Centre have opened the doors of our Animal Clinic to the public in order to give our community more affordable health care for your pets, while enjoying the benefits of the most caring Doctors and Nurses around. In addition, supporting our Clinic means that you will also be supporting over 500 animals at the Wet Nose Animal Rescue Centre, as all proceeds from our Clinic go straight into the care of the Shelter Animals!
The Wet Nose Animal Clinic provide all the medical care needed to our over 500 rescued animals. On intake, every animal goes to the clinic for a comprehensive intake clinical examination. There they are checked for injuries, illness, skin conditions, heart conditions, dehydration, malnutrition etc. There after, every animal gets vaccinated, de-wormed, micro chipped, dipped for parasites, cats get tested for HIV/FeLV and of course they all get sterilised!
During the course of their stay at Wet Nose, they will continue to be treated or vaccinated, dipped and de-wormed when due. Finally when the happy day of adoption comes along, each animal will receive an exit clinical examination, just to make sure that they are happy and healthy going home.
