Message from our vets
The veterinarians at our Cape Town hospital encourage members of the public to research a particular breed of animal before making this addition to your family.
At the PDSA, our veterinarians treat the complete range of cases; however we have noticed an increasing trend in dogs being stabbed, poisoned and shot during the latter months of 2008.
What you can do
Volunteer program at Bridgetown Hospital presently on hold until future notice.
