Caring for our beloved native species
Please be careful and if possible, do not handle the injured animal, as this can cause them undue stress and even cause them to injure themselves further.
If it is during surgery hours and you are able to handle the animal, you can bring it in to our surgery where we can assess it for treatment and referral on to a carer for rehabilitation however if it is out of hours please phone 4159 6431, the Wildlife Rescue & Carers Bundaberg & District.
Please note that our surgery is not a rehabilitation centre, so if the native animal cannot be treated and released into the wild (or to a local sanctuary or carer organisation), our options are somewhat limited.
Our vets and nurses have extensive experience in treating injured native animals, including birds, possums, koalas, wallabies and kangaroos. We love our native wildlife as much as we love our pets, so we will do everything we can to treat their injuries and get them back into the environment.
