AlphaPet has always treated wildlife casualties presented to us by clients and members of the public.
Over recent years however, we've been getting more and more wildife casualties from other vets via Brent Lodge Wildlife Hospital. Brent Lodge is a wildlife recuperation and rehabilitation charity, wholly reliant on legacies, donations and fund-raising to allow them to do their amazing work. When many casualties still need workups and treatment, these are having to be financed by both Brent Lodge and ourselves.
So AlphaPet has taken the lead and sent a letter to all local vets to try and encourage them to do their bit for wildlife casualties and reduce some of the current burdens on Brent Lodge and AlphaPet.
Many local practices already see this as pro bono work and it's enough for them, like AlphaPet, to know that we are all doing our share for our community and that it's part of the "deal" of being a vet.
