MELBOURNE HOSPITAL ADMITS TO TREATING PETS
Melbourne's Alfred Hospital has admitted treating dogs and cats in its radiotherapy facilities.
The hospital says about 22 animals have been treated in the William Buckland Radiotherapy Centre since 2005.
A spokesman says the animals were treated after hours, and their treatment in no way compromised or undermined human care.
He says the animal service came at no financial cost to the hospital.
The State Government says it is disappointed the facilities have been used for animal treatment.
A spokesman for Victorian Health Minister Daniel Andrews says the hospital has assured the Minister the practice will be stopped.
He says the minister is satisfied with that assurance.
