This month we celebrate bringing in the Chinese New Year. February 1st marks the beginning of the Year of the Tiger. The third animal of the Chinese zodiac, the tiger denotes bravery, competitiveness and confidence.

We have received a small number of enquiries involving tigers with varying circumstances, including overdose of therapeutic medication, barbiturate toxicosis and enclosure hazards.

The VPIS are available 24/7 to advise on cases concerning any species of animal. We have the information and resources on hand to assist with any enquiry.
