What to do if you find a lost pet

If you find a lost pet, check for obvious identifying marks or tags that may enable you to contact the owner directly

If there are none call the numbers above and let them know a full description of the animal and where it was found. You may be asked to keep hold of the animal for a limited period until someone can take charge

If the pet is injured, call us directly on 01264 729165 – if a mild injury we may ask you to wait a short period until our next surgery. If severe, the animal will be seen as an emergency

In these cases we will carry out emergency care but will try to avoid costly investigations/ repairs until the owner is located. However, all necessary treatment to keep your lost pet out of pain will be given. For this we may ask you to cover costs on collection. We always scan lost pets for microchips and try to contact owners as quickly as possible.
