Our Hospital

Animal Care in Egypt (ACE) is a charity dedicated to helping stop the suffering of thousands of animals in the poorest communities of Luxor by providing free veterinary care and education.

We helped over 29,000 animals in 2018

We provide:

  • Free veterinary treatment
  • Stables for horses and donkeys so they can recieve treatment and recover
  • Washing facilities for showering animals to remove dirt that can increase rubbing from tack
  • Routine dentistry so animals are able to eat properly
  • Farriery for preventative foot care helping donkeys and horses avoid crippling lameness
  • De-worming for dogs and cats
  • Emergency care for cattle, sheep and camels

We have 3 clinics:

  • The walk-in clinic for assessment and minor treatments
  • Our large animal surgery for inpatient treatments and surgery
  • A small animal clinic with a consulting room, surgery room and basic laboratory equipment

Our hospital is open 7 days a week (Friday is open for emergencies only). We treat all animals but the majority of our patients are working donkey and horses. Read more about our vets here.

ss21Our hospital also has stable to allow animals to rest and recover, as well as receive their treatments and are assessed twice daily to monitor their improvement. We have paddocks that allow donkeys and horses to stretch their legs (once they are well enough to do so!). These shady paddocks are great for getting the animals moving around.
