Veterinary Clinic

We operate a Veterinary hospital at out SNP units, where outpatient treatments are done from 9 am to 11 am every day. We also undertake sterilisation of pet animals here. We currently have two veterinary doctors, and 2 consultant vets who visit us from time to time.

Awareness

HAS believes that spreading awareness is one of the most important tools for improving the lives of animals around us and facilitating peaceful coexistence between humans and animals.
