Putney Animal Hospital
The Putney Animal Hospital provides veterinary services primarily for the use of our Inspectorate and for sick and injured unowned animals.
Every year a large number of needy animals are admitted, mostly cats and dogs, but can include rabbits, birds, reptiles and amphibians, as well as wildlife casualties such as foxes, water birds, raptors and snakes. Most of these animals are brought to the hospital by our RSPCA inspectors and animal collection officers.
We provide veterinary care for these animals from repairing fractures and treating wounds to blood tests and vaccinations, ensuring they are in good health to be rehomed through our network of animal centres. Please note we do not rehome directly from the hospitals.
In addition we provide a limited, reduced cost, subsidised service for clients who meet certain requirements.
Our eligibility criteria has been updated and we now only see clients on the following benefits:
Income Support (IS)
Job Seekers Allowance (JSA)
Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
Pension Credit (NOT state pension)
Universal Credit: (only the parts related to IC, JSA, ESA- not Working Tax Credit, Child tax Credit or any other components). Must be receiving a Standard Allowance and show up-to-date proof.
All clients, old or new, have to show proof of benefits, proof of address and photo ID every time they attend the hospital to ensure ongoing eligibility.
We will register a maximum of two animals from each household and only cover certain postcodes: SW13-20, W9 & W10, TW1-TW19, KT1-KT10, KT12-KT13, KT17-KT21, SM1-SM7, UB1-UB10
We are open between 9am to 5pm.
You must phone ahead and make an appointment by calling us on the number on the Contact Us page.
Except in the case of genuine emergencies if you turn up without an appointment you are likely to have a long wait, or be rebooked for an appointment on another day.
We offer an emergency service for eligible clients at other times, which is for genuine emergencies only- you should call in advance. There are additional fees for this service, which are higher between 10pm-8am.
