We have numerous sections working together to make up the Mdzananda Animal Clinic.
Our consultation room is the first stop for any animal coming to the clinic. Here a pet is examined and assessed. Minor treatments can be administered here after which pets can be sent home. For more severe treatments pets are admitted to our hospital.
Our hospital facility is where pets receive full day and over night treatment until they are ready to be discharged. Animals that have undergone surgery also receive post surgery treatment here.
Our theatre facility is equipped with an operating theatre, orthopeadic tools for orthopeadic surgeries and a x-ray room. All operations happen here. We encourage every owner to have their pet sterilised (it is our policy to only treat animals if owners commit to sterilise)
Our mobile team goes door to door educating community members on animal healthcare. They also assess the home and animal's environment and makes suggestions as to how the owners can improve the animal's quality of life.
These are an extension of our on-site consultation room and enable people to get help for their pets when they are too far away from the clinic to bring their pets themselves. Pets are vaccinated, dewormed and receive flea and tick treatment as a standard procedure. Animals that need further assistance are transported to the clinic and admitted to our hospital. They are returned to owners when they are better.
Often community members find strays roaming the streets or need to hand their animals over if they can no longer care for them. These pets remain with us until we are able to find them suitable homes.
As our organisation is predominantly an animal hospital our shelter unit is very small. We can house 15 dogs and 15 cats. If we have more we rely on fosters.
When emergencies are reported our ambulance service will fetch a pet from their home or place where the accident occured. They are taken to Mdzananda where they are admitted for treatment.
An on-site vet shop sells everything that a pet would need at low prices which are affordable to the community. Items include good food, leads, collars, jackets, blankets, toys, treats, kennels and shampoo to name a few.
From time to time we are asked by schools and other grassroot organisations to present animal care workshops. We also host children at our clinic during their holidays. These children volunteer, helping to bathe pets, clean cages and more. They learn through having hands on experience and take this knowledge into the community, inviting their friends to join.
