What to do if you find a pet
- Dogs – Usually if you find a dog roaming the streets and it is friendly it is best to take them to the closest Veterinary Hospital as they have the equipment to check to see if the dog has a microchip. If you find that they’re aggressive its best to leave them alone and contact the local council as they have rangers who deal with these types of dogs. The rangers will take the dog to a local vet to check to see if they have a microchip.
- Cats – When dealing with cats often we find that the place they were picked up is where they live. It is best to leave them alone as they will make their way back home. However, there are some cases where if you are concerned of the cat’s welfare that it is appropriate to take the cat to your local Veterinary Hospital.
In general, if you find any lost pet taking them to your local Veterinary Clinic is the best option for them being able to find their home.
