Veterinarian Gao Jindong usually serves in a managerial role at Model Veterinary Hospital in Wuhan, Hubei province, treating sick pets.

But since the lockdown of the city, he has become a nanny for the dogs and cats that have been left in the hospital's care since the Spring Festival holidays.

"Most of their owners are outside Wuhan and cannot come back to pick up their pets because the city was locked down in late January," Gao said.
