WILDLIFE CARE AT CVH
How's this for one cute young wombat?
Unfortunately, like many native animals and birds, he was presented at CVH after his Mum was killed on the road. The good news is that he was uninjured and in excellent health so, after a period with a wildlife carer, he will be released back into the wild when independent and old enough to fend for himself.
Don't hesitate to contact us about injured wildlife - it's critical they are seen as soon as possible after being found, and at CVH we undertake to provide care and support for wildlife free of charge. We work closely with carers from WIRES and Wildcare.
Crookwell Veterinary Hospital wins Education Award
Crookwell Veterinary Hospital staff were thrilled to win the 2015 University of Sydney Faculty of Veterinary Science Education Award for Rural Mixed Practice. CVH is an accredited Partner Practice of the Faculty of Veterinary Science. We host Year 3 and final year veterinary science students – in 2015, 6 students interested in rural mixed practice are staying at the practice for up to 4 weeks.
The Education Awards are judged by a panel of Faculty staff members. The award winners are selected after consideration of feedback from vet students throughout the year about their experience in a range of vet practices.
