What our clients say about Vets4Pets

G'day! Just wanted to personally say Thank you for the care you took in accessing our four legged boy; we knew he was not coming home with us, but my husband and I REALLY and genuinely appreciate everyone's caring and support along the way!
P.S. The Forget me Not seeds were VERY touching indeed! www.yelp.com.au/biz/golden-grove-veterinary-hospital-valley-view#hrid:ufnPlIJzpjZ_A-J7TuIJpg
I have been going to Golden Grove Veterinary Hospital for many a year!
Recently, sadly, I left with a tear!
As the last of our animals has to be put to sleep; knew it was the logical and humane thing to do!
From the ladies at reception (who attended my rather panicky phone call) to the vets upon entering, everyone demonstrates their caring behavior as if the pets were their own.
After a careful and thorough exam, the vet calmly explained the situation and options available too!
Our animal and I both knew!
He would not be returning that day, which was the right thing to do!
I know Golden Grove Veterinary Hospital is in the business of making money, but it is the little things that mean A LOT; ESPECIALLY when one is grieving the loss of their pet (and last) too!
A card arrived in the mail, was perfect timing on the day!
It expressed what most people cannot say!
It DID bring comfort and there was another bonus (which REALLY meant a lot)
Enclosed in the card were seeds Forget Me Not!
Anyone who knows me, KNOWS I am a sooky la-la when it comes to animals, TRUE!
But I especially would like to share this poem about "A pet so special...can never be forgotten.
Losing a pet is saying goodbye to a good friend, but memories of kindness, love and companionship are with you forever.
I hope you enjoy too!
I HIGHLY recommend Golden Grove Veterinary Hospital for everything ALL of their staff does do!
-Joanne F
