Lost or Found Pet

In our role as emergency home visiting veterinarians, we understand the importance of responsible welfare, even for strays. While we can't make visits for strays and wildlife, we can guide you in case of injuries.
Identification and Safety :

Approach cautiously, ensuring safety. Look for identification tags on collars, but if the pet is aggressive or injured, maintain distance and contact local authorities.

Assess the Condition :

We can't make visits, but our triage nurses can advise you if the animal needs urgent veterinary care. Injured animals should be taken to an emergency veterinary hospital; we can help you find one.

Secure the Animal :

If is safe to do so, secure the pet with a lead or carrier.

Notify Local Authorities and Organisations :

Report stray dogs to the local dog warden. Depending on the Borough where they are found, many will have an out of hours service. Organisations such as the RSPCA may be able to assist with wildlife and other stray pets. Please note that most charities or rehoming centres are unable to take found animals in the first instance.

Police :

Contact the local police to report dangerous or exotic strays.

Online Outreach :

Use social media and community groups to spread the word. Many pets can be reunited with their owners via online posts.

While we can't visit stray pets, we're here to guide you.

Prioritise both theirs and your safety and responsible care for strays in collaboration with local authorities and organisations.
Together, we will ensure their welfare.
