The Cochin Pet Hospital | Cochin

in Pet

What you see – The Cochin Pet Hospital is housed in a bright, blue building at Vidhyanagar Crossroads, Panampilly The Cochin Pet HospitalNagar, Cochin. It is a multi-specialty pet hospital, boasting of many firsts in the veterinary segment to its credit. Started by a vet duo Dr. Giggin T and Dr. K Sooraj, it offers round the clock service and even sells pet care products.

What you get - Spread over 25,000 square feet, the hospital offers 24-hour medical attention to pets with facilities like emergency care, neonatal ICU and electronic ventilator. A highly advanced operation theatre, diagnostic lab with ultrasound scanning, ECG and digital X-ray unit, auto haematology analyzer, multi-para patient analyzer and video microscope are other features. They also claim to have India's first ventilator controlled anaesthesia machine. Separate departments are there for dentistry and ophthalmology too.

An exclusive in-house pharmacy, on-call ambulance service, house visits and door-step delivery of feed apart from breeding service, renders the hospital an extraordinary advantage. All these services can be availed by dialling in to the hospital's toll free number 18001025759.

Another unique feature of the hospital is its in-house pet grooming parlor. Apart from grooming, tips are provided to owners on pet upbringing, nutrition, breeding and buying. The hospital also has a pool where pets can have medicated and non-medicated baths. At the ‘Pet Shop' section, a wide array of pet products and accessories like dog and cat collars, leashes, shampoos, food, furniture, toys (both Indian and imported) are available.

We are also told that all staff members are recruited by assuring they are animal lovers. The pet hospital also takes care of abandoned stray pets and handicapped pets. They also promote pet adoption. In association with CARE a Kochi-based NGO, they even run free anti-rabies vaccination camps and promote the concept of sterilizing the pets. 

An infertility clinic, a maternity division and a home stay for pets are the other additional services here.

Our verdict – Cochin Pet Hospital is a sophisticated pet hospital and perhaps one-of-its-kind in Kerala. They seem to have given their best to make the pet owners feel at ease. The entire hospital is fully air-conditioned. Ample parking space and Wi-Fi facility add to the comfort. The vaccination room is right at the entrance so that healthy pets coming in for getting vaccinated do not mingle with the diseased ones. The entrance is designed with a walk-in weighing machine to save the owner from the trouble of pulling the animal onto the scale. The issuance of health cards and the practice of maintaining case histories are impressive.
