Mdzananda_animal_clinic_logoMdzananda Animal Clinic was founded in 1996 in response to the need to provide veterinary care to a fast growing community that had no access to help for their animals. Today the clinic serves up to 1,000 animals per month through consultations, surgery, hospitalization, x-rays and mobile clinics for sick and injured animals, primarily dogs and cats.

It all started with a community hero who wanted to help his neighbours pets.
