Help us make a difference!
Our hospital in Luxor sees thousands of animals every year. Many are treated for serious, life threatening conditions, often due to neglect or lack of understanding that animals feel pain. We have 3 clinics within our hospital:
The walk-in clinic for assessment and minor treatments
Our walk-in clinic is where we first assess the patients. There is no appointment system as many people wouldn’t know how to contact us or be able to beforehand. People sign in at our gate and then wait to be seen by Dr David. Many animals come for routine treatments like worming and dentistry or they may have something much more serious and need surgery. Minor surgery can be done outside in the clinic, such as flushing an abscess but major surgery is conducted in our large animal surgery. Dr David assesses each animal, either treating them as necessary or referring them to the vets working on inpatients, who will work the case up from there.
Our large animal surgery for inpatient treatments and surgery
Dr Assma and Dr Hannah work mainly on inpatients. Animals that are referred from the walk-in clinic are assessed by the vets and appropriate tests and treatments are given, like x-rays. Typically the animal will need to stay in one of our stables. They will stay with us until they recover. We write SOAPs (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Plan) twice a day which helps ensure we are monitoring the animals effectively and they get all their necessary treatments. Animals may stay just for the night or be with us for months. We take care of the animals while they stay with us. Once they are feeling better or are more mobile we allow them time out in our paddocks to help in their recovery.
Small animal clinic with a consulting room, surgery room and basic laboratory equipment
While we predominantly treat working animals we also see hundreds of cats and dogs every year. Our small animal clinic has a consulting room where we assess and treat patients. We also do routine neutering. We can keep cats and dogs in over night if they need time to recover and be monitored or receive further treatment. Our lab has basic equipment like a microscope, useful for skin samples and blood test.
If you would like to visit us while you are in Luxor, we would love to see you and show you around the centre. You will get a tour of the hospital, centre and the stables where you can meet and cuddle some of our patients!
We welcome volunteers from all walks of life. You don’t need to be a qualified vet or vet nurse to help us at the centre in Luxor. We have general volunteer placements, veterinary student and vet nurse student placements.
