Injured Wildlife Care
Berkshire Veterinary Hospital offers free care for injured wildlife. Over the years we have treated a wide variety of native wildlife, including a number of bobcats, fawns, possum, and a variety of birds. Special permits are required for the care of any wildlife. This service is not funded by any state or federal program, it is a donation from our hospital to this community. With the relatively recent arrival of Rabies in our area, it is very important that citizens use extreme caution when dealing with injured wildlife. Trained wildlife management personnel should be called to handle injured animals.
We are not able to provide care to raccoons, foxes, skunks, or coyotes due to rabies risk.
