We treat indigenous wildlife free of charge and are happy
to take in sick or injured creatures brought to the surgery
by the RSPCA or by members of the public. We will administer
immediate first aid and follow up with nursing care and medication
or minor surgery, as necessary. We may ask you to release
the animal where you found it after treatment.
Some animals require longer term nursing and rehabilitation
or complex specialist surgery and these we will refer on to
specialist wildlife care centres such as St.
Tiggywinkles near Aylesbury.
Please remember, wild animals often leave their very young
offspring unattended while they go off to forage or hunt.
If you find a fledgeling bird or a deer fawn, alone but uninjured,
LEAVE IT WHERE IT IS. The likelihood is that the parents will
return to it once you have gone away and certainly its survival
chances are much better if left undisturbed.
