Injured native wildlife is welcome at Fairford Road Animal Hospital and will be checked and treated free of charge where necessary and possible. Please ensure that any animal found is kept safe and warm before being brought to us. The address of where the animal was found is very helpful, as we will endeavour to release in the same spot where possible. For further advice please call Sydney Wildlife on 9413 4300 or visit their website http://www.sydneywildlife.org.au/. It is illegal for any member of the public to provide continued care of a wild animal. Once we have cleared the animal of any health issues, we will therefore pass them on to a certified wildlife carer, who will prepare and action their release.
Puppy preschool is an important first step to developing a well-adjusted family pet and it is recommended for all new puppies. Your dog’s ideal socialisation period is while they’re a puppy, which is when we have the most influence over behaviour, and the best opportunity to lay the foundations for a happy and confident adult dog. We offer preschool courses throughout the year comprising 4 x 1-hour sessions for puppies 8-15 weeks of age. We also offer Senior Puppy classes for pups over 15 weeks. Learn more.
While we predominantly perform consultations in-house, we are happy to come to you where the situation is practicable and provided our schedule for the day allows. Extra charges do apply – please phone us on 9709 6844 for more information.
