The PDSA provides a welfare veterinary service and offers the following:

  • Vaccinations
  • Deworming
  • Sterilizing of animals
  • Orthopaedic surgery
  • Opthalmic corrections
  • All correctional surgery
  • Burn treatments
  • Skin treatments
  • Education on how to care for your pet
  • 9 Mobile units around the country including:
    • Cape Town
    • Soweto
    • George

All of the above is accomplished through donations and the support of our communities and friends as we are a Non Profit Organisation.

Due to the economic pressure being brought to bear on the People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals, we have been forced to impose a scale of tariffs.

To qualify for our services you should not have a combined salary of more than R15 000 per month, per household. Should you earn over and above this amount, we are appealing to you to allow other less privileged clients to benefit from our services, by rather approaching a private vet.

For orthopaedic treatment please note that after examination and consultation, a fee will be discussed with the client, before any treatment is administered.

A Note from our Chief Administrator:

“We continue to operate in a tough financial environment but we are committed to maintaining our levels of service excellence. Sadly, our facilities are often abused by people who can afford private veterinary care and we have therefore been forced to impose a scale of tariffs. I give you my personal assurance that no-one will be turned away because they cannot afford to pay, but the abuse of our services that are in place for the needy has impacted greatly on our ability to maintain and increase the facilities we provide to our poorer communities” Patrick Horrigan
