The Wild Vet Conservation Fund
At The Wild Vet, we believe that wildlife patients deserve the same standard of care as paying clients. For each paying client that we see, a portion of the proceeds goes towards the care of wildlife in our wildlife hospital. We accept all wildlife from the public free of charge and have a strong relationship with local wildlife rescue groups. Dr Emma is an active member of Sydney Wildlife, and several nurses are also members of local wildlife groups – which means that even outside normal working hours we are often raising orphaned wildlife or attending rescues!
Where other vet clinics commonly euthanise wildlife with significant illness or injuries, our vets use their experience with weird and wonderful pets to treat native animals. This includes pinning broken bones, providing intensive care, removing intestinal foreign bodies, performing feather transplants and more.
We also accept referrals from (and provide advice to) veterinary hospitals who don’t normally treat exotics or wildlife. Our vets are experienced with species that dog and cat vets might not be confident with, and are happy to share our skills and knowledge if it benefits our unique Aussie critters!
In addition to donating our services, our veterinarians are given additional paid holiday leave each year, to be spent volunteering with a charity of their choice. It’s our way of giving back to other organisations with limited resources, both in Australia and internationally.
Considered Donating?To support our work, have you considered donating? For $50 we can perform x-rays on one patient, and reach a diagnosis which may save their life. Or for $100 we can provide a day’s worth of intensive care, bringing a patient back from the brink of death.
