Veterinary & Relocation Services

Project Description

WHO WE ARE

As a wildlife management and veterinary company, Wildlifevets.com employs full time staff, to deliver the top quality service and professional touch that must be expected in the wildlife sector. Having close to 30 years experience in Game Capture and Wildlife Veterinary practices, we are confident that our expertise can satisfy any client’s needs. With projects and research stretching from the Kwa-Zulu Natal to the Middle East, the energy and dedication our company invests in its clients and more importantly the animals they work with, is phenomenal.

Wildlifevets.com is dedicated to providing both its local and international clients the highest standard of service excellence. Our team and equipment enable us to take on large scale projects and we are involved with ongoing conservation programs that stretch over several years. This is not to say that we only focus on the big stuff. Individual animal care and rehabilitation remains close to our hearts and many successful reintroductions have our name on them.

What makes us different is that we take a turn-key approach to wildlife management. Our goals are to achieve good ecosystem health, profitable models for our clients, to promote responsible game ranching and breeding and expanding the global wildlife veterinary network. Working closely with government and the private sector to show we have achieved a good standing in both community and business.

Our aim is to be leaders of industry while implementing practices and methods we envisage becoming the standard in the future.

OUR SERVICES

Having actively developed our skill set over the last 18 years, we have a solid foundation to draw from. Understanding our clients’ needs and guiding new clients in the correct direction is always a priority. Here is a brief breakdown of what we offer:

Clinical Veterinary Services
Our vets can respond to all types of wildlife emergencies from snares to poisoning. We have probably dealt with it before so a lot of the guest work is avoided treating the patients with greater efficiency. Should we require a skill set that we do not posses in-house our broad network of animal healthcare professionals enable us to deal with all types of situations.

Game Capture, Relocation and Quarantine
With a fleet including super link and 4×4 crane trucks we can move a great deal of game efficiently. Our methods of capture are tried and tested and as we have a broad in-house skill set we can adapt should a capture become tricky. We have exported hundreds of game to international destinations and work abroad on a regular basis. Should a specific project require long term quarantine we can accommodate at our 14 bomas located at base camp in Mpumalanga.

Breeding Project Management
We have been involved in breeding project management since the beginning and have a great deal of knowledge to share. Should a client require assistance in setting up a project, actively managing a project or upgrading an existing project we can provide expert management services. Having our own projects in existence we can back-up our claims with hard data.

Wildlife Ranching Consulting Services
South Africa has an incredible natural resource – her wildlife. It is great to see how many new ranchers are taking an interest in seriously expanding this industry. We will assist our clients to avoid common pitfalls, prepare for the long term and setup a healthy system. We have consulted locally and internationally implementing management strategies in National Parks, zoos and for private clients.

Research – Clinical Trials, Equipment
Working closely with Wildlife Pharmaceuticals (Pty) Ltd our research department helps test and develop new drugs for the Veterinary industry. This is done through a combination of field tests and controlled boma tests. In conjunction with various PhD programs the data is worked and conclusive reports delivered back to the client. These programs can be run year round with every aspect being handled in-house. Speak to us about a need and we will find a solution.

Student Training
Through our partner Wildlifevets.net a number of student and professional training courses are offered. These include the “Introductory to Conservation Medicine Course” for veterinary students, the “Chemical Immobilisation Course” for veterinary professionals and Internships within the practice.
