Indore: Pet Treatment On Wheels Soon

Indore (Madhya Pradesh): With the hope of saving the lives of pet animals, Harendra Rajput, a veterinary doctor, has decided to start a pet clinic on wheels - Petnvet clinic in the city, which is a complete ambulance serving pets citywide. The ambulance service will be inaugurated soon. “We have initiated this ambulance service because there are no such facilities available for animals.

And due to lack of timely medical aid many pet owners lose their loved ones,” said Rajput. The Petnvet ambulance has all the facilities for first aid and treatment of animals. The ambulance has facilities for deworming, X-ray, oxygen supply, dentistry, intense care unit, blood profile test, and others. The cost of the vehicle is Rs 40 lakh. “When a pet owner calls the ambulance, a team of doctors along with the ambulance rushes to the place of the person to provide treatment as per need,” he added.
