LSPCA Veterinary Clinic is located in Kanengo, 400 metres passed Kapani on M1 road. Providing leading veterinary care, with modern equipment and a 24 hour emergency service, we aim to deliver a high standard of veterinary care at affordable prices, as well as run veterinary clinics in rural communities throughout Lilongwe; an essential service since there are very few qualified vets in Malawi and many animal owners have no access to veterinary care for their animals. The clinic also provides free veterinary care to all rescued animals, which are cared for on-site whilst we try to find them a new forever home through our adoption programme.

Vaccinations are the essential first steps in dramatically reducing the risk of your pet becoming seriously ill. Unfortunately in Malawi, diseases like rabies and parvovirus are common and highly contagious. Depending on the virus, it may be fatal to your animal or, in some instances including rabies, the disease can be fatal to humans. Therefore, having your dog or cat vaccinated is the best and least costly way of preventing these diseases. Furthermore, if you are thinking about taking your dog or cat abroad, many countries have stringent policies in place (including vaccinating against rabies and microchipping your pet).
When your puppy or kitten reaches six weeks, they need their first 5-in-1 or felocell vaccination, which is then to be repeated at week nine and twelve. The rabies vaccination is required by law and can be administered once your pet reaches twelve weeks of age. Both vaccinations then become annual. If you do not have a vaccination card when your pet gets his first set of vaccinations, LSPCA will provide one; please ensure you bring your pet's vaccination card with you every time you visit the clinic.
LSPCA also recommends that you deworm your cat or dog at the same time as it's first vaccinations, then once every three to six months.
Sterlisation is the surgical removal of testes in males (castration) or the removal of the uterus in females (spay), and is carried out under general anaesthetic. There are many reasons to sterilise your pet: prevention of unwanted puppies or kittens; reducing behavioural problems; prevention of unwanted attention from male dogs when in season; and reducing health problems including the risk of testicular, cervical and mammary cancers as well as the prevention of uterus infections (pyometra).
This procedure can be carried out from six months of age, and is an out-patient procedure where your animal is admitted to the clinic in the morning and taken home late afternoon.
If you would like further information on this procedure or would like to book your pet in for sterilisation, please call +265 (0) 995 027 815.
