The Veterinary Section of the Agriculture & Natural Resources Division (ANRD) provides care and treatment for all animals on St Helena.

This involves tending to sick animals, surgery and diagnostic work, laboratory testing (and post-mortems) as well as preventative health programmes.

We have cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, donkeys as well as dogs, cats, fish, rabbits and guinea pigs and of course the giant tortoises at Plantation to look after.

The Veterinary Section also maintains quarantine facilities, import and export inspections of animals on ships, yachts and planes, seizures of illegal imports, surveillance work to ensure we detect new or emerging diseases, official disease reporting, investigating welfare cases with the police, amending legislation and assisting with public health enquiries.
