LSPCA Clinic


LSPCA Veterinary Hospital is located in Kanengo-Roberts/Area 28, on the outskirts of Lilongwe city. Providing leading veterinary care, with modern equipment and 24-hour emergency service, we deliver a high standard of veterinary care at affordable prices. We also run veterinary clinics in rural communities throughout Lilongwe.

This is an essential service since there are very few qualified vets in Malawi and many animal owners have no access to veterinary care for their animals. The hospital also provides free veterinary care to all rescued animals, which are cared for on-site whilst we try to find them a new forever home through our adoption programme.

With our vets living onsite, a dedicated emergency telephone number and back-up generators, LSPCA has a 24 hour emergency service providing vital and life-saving surgery and treatment to your pet at its greatest time of need.

Vaccinations are the essential first steps in dramatically reducing the risk of your pet becoming seriously ill. Unfortunately in Malawi, diseases like rabies and parvovirus are common and highly contagious. Depending on the virus, it may be fatal to your animal or, in some instances including rabies, the disease can be fatal to humans. Therefore, having your dog or cat vaccinated is the best and least costly way of preventing these diseases.


Furthermore, if you are thinking about taking your dog or cat abroad, many countries have stringent policies in place (including vaccinating against rabies and microchipping your pet).

Sterlisation is the surgical removal of testes in males (castration) or the removal of the uterus in females (spay), and is carried out under general anaesthetic. There are many reasons to sterilise your pet: prevention of unwanted puppies or kittens; reducing behavioural problems; prevention of unwanted attention from male dogs when in season; and reducing health problems including the risk of testicular, cervical and mammary cancers as well as the prevention of uterus infections (pyometra).

This procedure can be carried out from six months of age, and is an out-patient procedure where your animal is admitted to the clinic in the morning and taken home late afternoon.

If you are leaving Malawi and want to take your pet with you, or are moving to Malawi and want to bring your animal over here, LSPCA can help. We are experienced in all aspects of pet import and export, from blood tests and paperwork to transportation.

We also have a good partnership with the Department of Animal Health and Livestock Development to ensure the process is as smooth as possible. We can assist with animals traveling to Europe (including Iceland), United Kingdom, United States, SADC, Japan and many more!
