At Robson and Prescott we treat a wide range of wildlife and work with a number of zoological collections including; Down at the Farm, Eshottheugh Animal Park, Pets' Corner at Jesmond Dene, Kielder Water Birds of Prey Centre, Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens. As such we have worked with species as varied as whales, seals, camels, porcupines, primates, bats and bush dogs.
We do on occasion see some surprising pets in private ownership be it a meerkat, a monkey or a civet, but typically these creatures require very specialist care and are often better served in the zoo environment.
With injured wildlife cases veterinary management and treatment is only a small part of the story and as such we work inconjunction with organisations such as the RSPCA and BDMLR (British Divers Marine Life Rescue) to try and ensure appropriate recuperation, rehabilitation and release wherever possible.
Our most frustrating presentations are those of fledgling birds in the spring that well-meaning members of the public have assumed are abandoned. The parent birds are often close by but once a human has taken the fledgling away reintroduction becomes very difficult.
