WNIC PET CARE GUIDE
This section is made from valuable feedback of foreigners living in Changsha. If you have experience of these recommended places, or know of a new, better pet care centre, please share it with us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Recommended veterinarians/animal hospitals>
Warning: there are many small, independent animal clinics scattered across the city. Many of these are run by either poorly qualified or trainee vets. It is highly recommended that you head to one of the listed animal care centres (below) which have been 'tried and tested' by one or more of the expats who have been living in Changsha for some time. The most central "pet street" is adjacent to TaiPingJie. We have given one of these pet street clinics a space below due to positive feedback, however, some Chinese have reported that the vets in this area are dubious (at best).

Agriculture UniAnimal Hospital
WNIC review (inspected by the WNIC team)
This animal hospital claims to be the only fully licensed animal hospital in Changsha as this is a faculty building in which all vets are trained veterinarians, some of whom are sent from Beijing to teach animal care.
The hospital is located in the south of the campus. It is open during most lunch times although calling ahead is recommended. Numerous buses will take you there (it is the terminus for the 802 bus). The university is located in the far East of Changsha (in the direction of the airport).

LOOKING FOR A PET KENNEL NEAR CHANGSHA?
The following organisation has been recommended by WNIC members in chat forums:
Some WNIC members have reported a good facility in the north of the city. They have 4 or 5 outdoor spaces (roughly 25/35m2) with a dog house and each has a bit shade (near a tree). Since our two dogs were raised in the village, sleeping outside and all that was fine for them.
They take dogs for walkies 2 times a day and might also send you a video of how your pooch is doing. Dogs interact with each other and allow you to feed your own dog. every day. They also have a pool where dogs can swim.
Scan the code below to chat directly with the managers of the kennels for further discussion and information. Your dog may need all the vaccines and paperwork, if applicable, for reside at this place. Expect a full dog house during peak times. Has your pet stayed at this or any other kennel? Let us know!
