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

  • Vaccinations
  • Deworming
  • Sterilising of animals
  • Opthalmic corrections
  • Dentals
  • 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.

Our services are available to owners who are not able to afford the services of a private veterinarian.

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 sick or injured animal requiring immediate medical assistance will be turned away because their owner cannot afford to pay. Unfortunately 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
