Charity information

Animal Health Trust

The Animal Health Trust is a charity that has been helping dogs, cats and horses for more than half a century. It is the only charity specifically dedicated to improving the health and welfare of horses, dogs, and cats by addressing the problems of disease and injury - the biggest threats to animal welfare in the UK today. Receiving no government funding, it is only through the generosity of our supporters that we are able to successfully achieve this goal.

We provide specialist veterinary clinical, diagnostic and surgical services and our successes in research have ranged from major breakthroughs in anaesthesia and surgical techniques to the development of vaccines against diseases such as canine distemper and equine influenza. Our scientists and veterinarians, many of whom are world leaders in their field, work alongside bringing together a wide range of expertise for a co-ordinated attack on animal diseases and injuries. By publishing scientific papers, speaking at conferences and talking to other veterinary surgeons about the cases dealt with, this knowledge is passed on to benefit the maximum number of animals.
