Serious cases like that of Pablo and Casper emergency operations are being carried out by the team of doctors.

" The lockdown has taught us that we are not the only ones who are affected," said Dr Samar Mahendran.

The two dogs are among the many examples of what pets are facing during the lockdown. Doctors at the CGS Hospital in Gurugram get 30 - 40 calls a day from pet lovers after they started free Tele-OPD for pet lovers.

Not only the pets, the hospital has been taking care of the strays also. With restaurants, eateries and dine outs closed, the availability of food for abandoned animals has reduced. Stray abandoned animals are among the many who are suffering in the lockdown. People are following the governments directive to the core, residents of plotted colonies are not opening their gates to step out, leave alone feed street animals. As a result, stray dogs and community animals have been the worst affected.

To tackle the situation and prevent the animals from suffering, Doctors of CGS Hospital are feeding fresh food twice a day to over 500 dogs and cats in the city since the lockdown. According to Dr Mahendran, the stray street animals are being given a balanced diet of carbohydrates and proteins. The hospital has also provided various Animal NGOs over 600 kgs of packaged food for feeding stray animals in other parts of the city.
