Huge Lottery Boost For Dundee Animal Hospital

The Dundee branch of the UK’s leading vet charity has received a big boost from lottery funding.

The People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) Pet Hospital in Hawkhill got a new electrolift table thanks to funds raised by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery.

Rebecca Ashman, PDSA vet, said: “We have received fantastic support from players this year.

“This has helped to secure a better future for thousands of pets in the city, as well as providing emergency care and life-saving equipment.”

The national PDSA organisation received a cash windfall from players which helped them treat 71,000 pets in 2017 with emergency conditions requiring immediate veterinary help.

The PDSA was formed by animal welfare pioneer Maria Dickin and has been treating animals in Dundee since 1939.

The Dundee charity costs more than £678,000 a year to run and relies entirely on donations from the public.

The centre provides more than 28,000 treatments each year and sees about 61 pets on an average day.
