SEVEMUR is Madrid Emergeny Veterinary Service of Madrid Salud managed by VISAVET Health Surveillance Centre of Complutense University of Madrid, in charge of health care for homeless animals in the streets of the city of Madrid and epidemiological study of diseases. This team is formed by a highly qualified Veterinary staff available 24 hours a day, every single day of the year.
