Sabre's Emergency Surgery
Thank you to all who were involved with saving my best friends life on Sunday night 4th February 2018. In particular, Dr. Erika who performed the surgery. Sabre is a 9.5 year old German Shepherd, and my best mate. I would like to acknowledge the professionalism and efficiency of the employees of the clinic. I left him there, and went home not knowing if I would ever see him again, I knew it was serious.
The other thing I would like to acknowledge is that there was no upselling as to levels of care, I was not asked if he was insured. People just got on with the job professionally. He went home after two nights in the emergency hospital, and is recovering beautifully. Thanks you all so much for saving Sabre’s life. I’ll spread the good word.
We appreciated your help
We just want to thank Dr Brendan for looking after our Dootie and helping us through some of the health issues we had with him. It was much appreciated. We would never have thought that such a little dootie could steal such a big piece of our hearts (as well as our socks). Dr Brendan understood our devotion to our little guy (Where others might have thought us weird). We appreciated that.
Thank you Jarko
I would like to thank Dr Jarko and his staff very much for their knowledge, caring and compassionate way they dealt with letting my beloved Raina go to heaven. After a very hard couple of weeks, and many vet visits Jarko quickly and quietly helped Raina out of pain, and sat with me till I was ok to drive home. When i am ready to get another dog i would definatly take him to see Jarko.
Being at Vets4Pets since 1986
Such wonderful caring staff. We have been attending their Salisbury Vets4Pets since early 1986 and have always gone back because of the personal care they bestowed on our loved ones.
This includes their 24 hour Care Centre in Golden Grove for when Emergencies strike out of hours.
Their knowledge is also wide-ranging as we have taken them the usual dogs and cats but also turtles and tree frogs plus rabbits.
I have no hesitation in providing the highest recommendations for their Group.
Kind Regard, L. Family
One of the best vets we have attended. Had a bad run with someone poisoning our cats, and then our Labrador having an injury.
Nothing but professional, courteous care every single time. We have even taken a lost dog there, and they rang to say they found the owners.
Always very friendly. Nice and clean. Don't often have to wait very long.
Kind regards to all who helped us on the night
We wish to belatedly thank all of the staff who attended to our "best friend" Nelson, very late in the evening on Saturday, 15 July. Sadly Nelson's spleen had ruptured, and due to his age, we elected not to have him operated on.
The compassion given to us as we said our goodbyes to Nelson was exceptional - so "thank you" to all.
Nelson brought so much happiness & comfort to our lives & we will forever be grateful for his presence.
Kind regards to all who helped us on the night.
Time to say goodbye
My brother, sister in law, myself and Mum called late Sunday, as Mum's cat Mischief, wasn't well. Mischief is nearly 20 years old. All options were given to us. The vet was compassionate, and gave us time to say goodbye. We were able to hold Mischief while she went to sleep. I cuddled her all the way home, and we lay her to rest in her favourite spot in the garden. I can't thank you enough for the care and empathy you showed us tonight. Mischief is now at peace.
Thank you for doing everything you could for our bunny Licorice 2 weeks ago. We found her in the gutter over 4 years ago. We gave her the best we could. Extra love to Suzanna M and Cheryl L. Regards Darren & Mandi
After Hours Thank you
Arrived at the Golden Grove Vet at 11.50pm with a 12yo Australian Shepherd with breathing difficulties, very scary. The care and attention was great, our dog stayed over night having tests that night and being carefully monitored until late the next day. Upper respiratory infection with complications, with medication we wait for a week and see what happens. Thank you Dr Susan, Dr Cheryl, nurses and staff.
Love & Kindness
I recently had to put my beloved little man down after 9 months of cancer treatment. I always knew buddy was in good hands during chemo and his little visits, as hard as it was leaving him I always knew he was being looked after. I'm so grateful for the help of Dr Brendan and the team.
The love and kindness they showed me and buddy at the end was so touching and appreciated, I could see they genuinely cared about him and were sad when he had to go. xxx
Have always taken my animals here! Very caring and very compassionate people! Will always trust them with all of my animals and wouldn't go anywhere different!
New to Mawson Lakes
We visited Mawson Lakes Vets4pets today for the first time after moving from another clinic. We saw Dr Maguire and will absolutely be returning for any and all of our 2 British Bulldogs needs! I've never had a Vet connect and care for our snorty piggies like this wonderful man did. Thank you so much for clearing up any concerns we had about our fur babies
Once again thank you for the professionalism regarding Missy.
We received a beautiful card today from you, thank you for the touching words.
Puppy Pre-School Ridgehaven
Puppy pre school was amazing for our new furbaby at the Vets4Pets Ridgehaven with Tiana and Carla!
Very educational and friendly vet nurses, & also the vets at this location have been very loving and caring towards our babies.
Hardest Night of my life
Hardest night of my life saying goodbye to my little Jack but the staff so caring and professional and a big hug from the nurse.. when my heart heals and I get another rescue dog, I will definitely be taking him or her to this awesome place
Passing of Milly
I just want to say thank you to Golden Grove Vets4Pets for the way they have supported me through the passing of my best friend Milly. Today I came home to a card in the mail to let me know their thoughts are with me. What really surprised me was that it had a maltese x shih tsu on it, just like Milly. It's little things like that which show that extra level of care and compassion. Vets4Pets has walked me through everything I have needed to do and stopped along the way to make sure I am comfortable and looked after at each step. They gave me time with her before she was put to sleep and encouraged me to pay in the room, so I could leave the clinic without having to talk to, or be emotional in front of, anyone. I had Milly cremated and I purchased an urn for her, only to find that a plaque couldn't be fixed to it, but they went ahead and ordered a separate plaque for me to make sure I still had it as a keepsake. Vets4Pets has shown me they understand what I am going through and know and value how much I love and will miss my Milly.
Puppy Pre-School Thank you
Dear Melissa, Katlyn and team
We would just like to thank you very much for puppy school and all we learnt from it. We enjoyed coming and it has made us better puppy owners and our gorgeous puppy even better.
Tatum and Mark
Thank you 4Cyte
We thought we’d send through a recent photo of our old girl Tobi out on one of her short walks.
Tobi attended Puppy School at the Ridgehaven Clinic way back in 2001 and she is now 15yrs 10mths old and still going very well.
We’ve all been very lucky that except for a few relatively minor events, Tobi has had a healthy and happy life.
A few years back she began showing the usual signs of aging, especially the onset of arthritis in front lower joints and rear hips.
On the recommendation of Vet Alicia we began giving Tobi the 4Cyte Green Muscle pellets each day and that made a significant difference. She had a whole new lease on life and seemed years younger.
We eventually added quarterly arthritis injections to her treatment and once again she thinks she is a young pup, in her mind at least! She bounds in the door each morning to greet us and as soon as we grab sunglasses and hat she is ready at the gate for a walk. We still get out for a walk each day, just the length of the walk and the pace have reduced as she puffs and pants if we let her go too far.
We’ve also attached a picture of our daughter’s cat Stella who came to live with us for 1 year in 2015. Stella also stays regularly when our daughter is away. We were concerned how an “old dog” would cope with a new younger cat on her territory but as you can see they get on brilliantly. We think both the 4Cyte and Stella have helped keep Tobi young.
Thank you all for taking such good care of her over the years, especially Alicia, for getting us started on the correct treatment early enough to ensure Tobi is still enjoying her older years.
Warwick & Sue
I love Monique
I normally see Brett Hodgkin at Golden Grove. I am very fussy about which vet I use and have been seeing Brett for about 15 years. Your Northgate branch is closer and I have just started seeing Monique who does the Rehab therapies. I must say I love Monique. She is like a version of Brett. Always explaining everything in detail and willing to take the time to answer my questions. Also the nurses at Northgate are just the best. Welcoming, warm and caring. I also love your new online bookings. Keep up your great service.
Thanks Catherine & Rocket
Dusty recovering very well
To all the Staff at Vets4Pets,
Thank you so very much for looking after Dusty, during and after his operation.
Your empathy and kindness means a lot to us all. He is recovering very well and we are now seeing his full beautiful nature again. He is feeling a lot better.
Service of both Chloe & myself.
Dear Brendan & Team,
I would just like to express how grateful I am of the service that Mawson Lakes Vets4Pets provided, for both Chloe and myself, it was exceptional.
Impression on Lucy
To Brendan and all the team at Mawson Lakes,
Lucy’s passing has been incredibly difficult, it became clear she made an impression on you all! She was a special girl and myself and Bill loved her dearly. Your care and compassion towards her was all we could have asked for and will not be forgotten.
Brendan, your care and treatment of Lucy at every visit was incredible. Thank you all again for your unwavering support, compassion and specialist expertise.
Courtesy & Compassion
To Brendan and all the wonderful staff,
Thank you for all that you did for Billie. You gave us hope for a long time, and always treated us with courtesy and compassion.
To Jarko & Staff
To Jarko & Staff,
Thank you for your kindness and compassion for our dear cat "Misty".
Best wishes to you all
My Mum and Dad now call me their bionic dog
Hi my name is Jak, I am a 10-year-old Shih Tzu cross. Unfortunately, I buggered up my cruciate ligament, so it was off to see Dr Brendan Maguire at Mawson Lakes Vets4pets – let the fun begin.
Dr Brendan sent me off for surgery at Northgate Vets4pets and there I met Dr Nigel Steyn who pulled by leg apart and put it back together along with a new addition to my leg in the form of a titanium pin (my mum and dad now call me their bionic dog). Thanks to Dr Nigel my leg worked again, but not properly yet, so I needed to learn to use it again normally.
Then I was introduced to Dr Monique Crouch who had been given the great task of helping me walk properly and fix my twisted back which I inherited due to my leg injury and also to having to over compensate my weight distribution (that’s another issue – only a couple of kgs).
Dr Monique is amazing, she ’lazered’ me, stuck needles in me, and then, well the massages …. OMG. Mum says she was fascinated watching her do her thing to help repair me. Dr Monique also introduced me to hydrotherapy which has aided in my recovery immensely; that’s where I met Katie who rolled up her pants and paddled with me – thanks Katie.
I am still visiting Dr Monique because I am not quite there yet, but I know I will make it and return to my old self; playing ball, ‘I love playing ball…I miss my ball’, generally running amok and enjoying life.
Again, I thank everyone for taking such good care of me, I will see you all soon.
PS as you can understand I am a little dog so I don’t know how to write or type so this was written by my mum…Susan
Merry Christmas to all at Vets4Pets particularly Ridgehaven and Golden Grove and thank you for the beautiful care you gave our Abbey in her last days in September.
The C. Family
Send a sincere thank you
Dear Management of the Vets for Pets Golden Grove,
I wanted to send a sincere thank you and and express my gratitude for service I recently received from the Golden Grove Vets for Pets veterinary hospital.
In late May I contacted the clinic because my parents dog was having a seizure. My parents were away overseas at the time. The prognosis wasn't good but Patch (the dog) spent a total of three nights at your hospital Happily he is still with us today and continued to improve.
From that first call and every interaction with staff from the Golden Grove office throughout this time was very empathetic, compassionate, understanding and supportive which was exactly what we needed. The staff really seemed to understand that Patch isn't just an animal but a member of the family and making certain decisions without his parents was extremely difficult. I couldn't be more grateful for the service we received
Thank you to all the wonderful staff,
Thank you ever so much
I would like to thank the staff who looked after my Pugalier Bella and her 8 puppies through her Ceasar Couldnt of asked for a better Outcome. Sadly 3 weeks later we had to bring our 13 yo Cocker spaniel in to be put down. They handled Missy and my family with compassion and care leaving us alone to say our goodbyes I cant praise you enough for making a hard and difficult time peaceful. We left knowing we had made the right decision seeing Missy pass quickly and peacefully Thank you ever so much.
100% back to normal
Dear Nigel & all the staff at the Northgate Vets4Pets,
It's been almost 3 months since Maggie's cruciate ligament surgery, and we are pleased to say she is 100% back to her normal chaotic, happy self. Late December we started back on our nightly 5km walks and you wouldn't even know she'd had surgery.
We want to thank you all so much for your effort, the care, and help you gave us during the stress of her procedure.
To all the caring staff at Salisbury Park Vets,
Thank you for looking after me after my dental surgery and giving me my tablet when my Mum and Dad couldn't.
Love from Luci J
To the staff,
Thank you for your kindness and help with Missy our cat, you all were really nice.
Thank you O. Family

Just that bit easier
Thank you for all your kindness and compassion shown by all the staff. You made a difficult time just that bit easier.
From Bella's Family
I keep meaning to write a thank you to the lovely people at Golden Grove. On Christmas Eve our cat gave birth and on Christmas Day we noticed something wasn't right with one of the kittens. The vet took a look and told us the sad news. It was hard, I've never had to put any of my pets to sleep before. Thankfully the staff was very supportive and stayed with him, we named him Burrito, until the very end. It was comforting to know someone was with him. So thanks to the wonderful staff!
Golden Grove Team
Can't thank the Golden Grove team enough for their compassion and care earlier in the week when I had to make the choice to farewell my Lenny boy. With such wonderful staff at Ridgehaven and Golden Grove, it's no wonder that Lenny enjoyed coming to visit you. Thank you so much
I recently purchased a puppy back in September and from my very first visit to your Vet located at Dernancourt we have had nothing but fantastic service by all your staff.
We also attended the Pre Puppy School and found it to be great value for money and very informative especially for me who hasn’t owned a dog since I was 8 years old. Lorraine and Sue led the sessions and honestly they are absolutely fantastic staff members to have. They are so well spoken and you can truly tell they absolutely love their jobs and care for the animals. Since then I have visited the vet to either have Mikey vaccinated or purchase food etc and each time I’m in there the staff have been absolutely amazing.
Just today I dropped Mikey off to have surgery and Sue has been so wonderful with Mikey and calling me to reassure me all went well.
I would like to send a special thanks to Sue and Lorraine as each time I see them and call them they have been so helpful, caring and amazing.
Again thank you for the amazing service and I will definitely be recommending you to family and friends.
Kind Regards T.Family
To all the wouderful staff at Vets4Pets, Especially Debbie,

Years of advice
Saying goodbye to Cosmo was just the hardest thing to do. He was such a loving, loyal doggie, eager to please and his personality touched so many lives! He gave us such joy and we went on so many adventures together.
You have been a big part of his life. You gave him a new lease on life, when you amputated his toe.
Beautiful Cosmo loved coming to see you.
Thank you so much Ellene for your years of advice and care for my beautiful Cosmo.
A big thank you
To the team at Vets4Pets,

We are so happy with Rob we drive the extra to make sure ALL our animals are in great hands. Thanks to all the staff at dernancourt from us and our fur and feathered babies :)
Sorry we moved house
Thank you Brendan and everyone else at Vets4Pets Mawson Lakes.
I’ve been bringing Ski to you for her entire life, and you’ve been unfailingly helpful and sympathetic, no matter the size of the problem.
I do appreciate all your efforts and I’m sorry that I need to move to a new veterinary practice.
Rest assured that I’ll judge all future vet practices by the standards established here.
Best Wishes, Helen & Ski
Our Best Friend Daisy
To Dear Brendan and all the wonderful nurses at Vets4Pets,
Thank you for your love and care for our best friend Daisy. You gave us hope when all was lost, and without your help we would never have had the extra precious time with our little friend.
Words can’t express our thanks for all of your support and kindness.
Thank you again
Lots of Love
Daisy, Rebecca & David
Kindness you extended
On behalf of my husband John and myself, I would like to express our sincere gratitude for the kindness you extended to us during our visit last evening with our beloved cat, Sally.
We are still grieving over our loss, but wanted to thank you for making the experience one that was filled with understanding and sympathy.
We had Sally in our lives for nearly 16 years, and although we knew her time had come to an end, it was still a very difficult decision to make.
Very special thanks to Hannah. She was wonderful, explaining everything to me. Her support and patience made a challenging experience much easier to bear.
Hannah’s last words to me were “we’ll take good care of her”. I will remember those comforting words for a very long time and for that, I am extremely grateful.
Thank you again
Mrs W. Baker
On April 1st Nosmo’s hips finally failed him forever. I organised a vet to come and help him into the “here-after” – it was and still is a truly devastating thing for me to do, regardless of the “rightness” of it…
The point of this letter is to highly commend both Anton and Sandra who came. They were both wonderful, compassionate, understanding, said and did things that applied uniquely to Nosmo and their experience of their times with Nosmo at the clinic.
I am hoping you will pass this on to Dr Brett Hodgkin and Dr Ellene Rossouw, so that they may also know how they “went the extra mile” for Nosmo and me.
With much gratitude to you all
I just wanted to thank you for the lovely card and flower seeds, posted to us after the loss of our beautiful pet Minky. It was a lovely thought and we appreciate the assistance we received from both mawson lakes and golden grove staff - everyone was very helpful and sympathetic.
Puppy's First Visit
I just wanted to say thank you to your staff. I brought our beautiful puppy Larry in today for his first visit. The vet Rachel was beautiful to him and the ladies behind the counter gave him lots of hugs and great advice. We have come to your clinic for a long time and your staff are always fantastic. Thank you
Loss of Coco
Dear Vets for Pets,
Thank you so much for the lovely card that you sent us for the loss of Coco. I would also like to thank the lovely girl on reception that handled the situation so beautifully when we were both so upset, Jarko took such lovely care of our other dog Roger when he was at Angle Vale, until he moved away. We have taken both Roger and Coco to other local vets but i have never been happy with the care that they have been given. That is why when Coco was unwell I rang around to find Jarko. We know that we gave Coco the best possible chance of getting well by bringing him to a vet who has so much time and compassion. Thank you all for making such a devastating time a little easier for us.
Kind Regards Rose
Words cannot express the gratitude I feel towards the staff of Golden Grove Vets4Pets.
Thank you so very, very much for the care and compassion shown to Gus upon his arrival in your surgery after the Adelaide Hills Bushfires, January 2015.
I am in no doubt, that had it not been for the dedication, devotion, skill and genuine love showered upon Gus - his recovery would not have been possible.
I'd also like to thank you for the on going care and concern demonstrated towards my family - nothing is ever too much trouble.
Thank you again
I wanted to give my thanks to the team at the clinic on Monday night. I did not catch the name of the lovely lady at the front desk, but the vet who saw us was Gabriel.
We brought in a 9 week old kitten who ultimately had to be euthanized. Obviously this was a huge shock as we had only adopted her two days prior.
The compassion and care delivered by both the vet and the lady on the front desk (sorry I don't know your name!) was wonderful. During such a hard time for both my daughter and myself, we were given the time to make a hard decision. And the love we felt really helped us.
You do not have an easy job with our furbabies, but the way you handle the hard times should be commended.
Thank you again,
Kylie & Annie and our baby Tigerlily
Boarding At Salisbury Park
A big big thankyou to Vets4Pets Salisbury Park for looking after our Indonesia cat while we were away. I was very worried leaving him for the first time. He is my baby. He is family. He had a great xmas and new years with your team. Picked him up 1 hour after our flight got in. He was big and fat and his coat was so soft and shiney. He was happy.
Thankyou so so much xxxx the Elliott family x
Golden Grove Staff
Just wanted to say a big thank you to the lovely woman I spoke to earlier tonight about the koala in Greenwith. Thanks to her I was able to get in contact with a fauna rescue volunteer and the koala has been taken home for the night and will be released tomorrow.
Care and Support
Thank you so much for your care and support for Max and the rest of us during 2014. Your empathy and pats for Max were greatly appreciated. Hopefully our Husky Pack will spend less time with you in 2015.
Cathy of Inglewood
We can't thank you enough
To Nigel & All the staff at Vets4Pets,
We can't thank you enough.
Respect and Dignity
The respect and dignity shown by Dr Nigel Steyn in his last moments should be applauded. The care shown towards Choi was overwhelming and to be honest a rare feature of our society today.
The gift received in the post yesterday was an extremely kind gesture and will be treasured for many years to come. For the time being we are all healing slowly as there are many reminders of Choi every day around the house, but his memory will always be with us.
Once again I would like to thank all the staff at Vets4Pets for their ongoing care for Choi over the many years since the Northgate Vet Hospital was first built. Early on he enjoyed regular visits to Barry for some special grooming and attention. We have and always will refer your Vet service as the only one worth going to purely for your care and honesty when dealing with peoples loved ones.
Choi’s Daddy, Northgate
Our English Bulldog Mable was evacuated and taken to Vets4Pets after surviving the Tea Tree Gully Kennels fire on Saturday. I just want to say thank you so much to all of the staff at Golden Grove and Northgate for taking care of Mable until we were able to pick her up on Saturday night. I can't imagine how distressed Mable was after what she had just been through and I deeply appreciate everything that you did for her, especially considering how busy you have been during this time. You are heroes, along with the CFS and anybody who has been kind enough to donate food, blankets, bedding, toys etc to your surgeries. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart and will never forget what you have done for my wife, myself and of course Mable.
I wish to thank you for your kind care and support in caring for my much loved canine family this year. Your help just a phone call away or a short dive has been much appreciated.
Dear Christine, Tina and Staff
We would just like to express our gratitude and appreciation for the many years of high level support and assistance you all provided to us and our much beloved pet, Fonzie.
Andriana & John
Wonderful Bedside Manner

The O’Brien Family
To Jarko, Carole and all staff
All the staff that have helped Shemiaka over the many years A Big Thank you!!!!
We have now moved and your support and services will be greatly missed. We are very grateful for looking after us over many years.
Best Wishes Sherrie & Georgia, and all the fur-kids
If you ever open up out our way please let me know!!!!
A Million Thanks
Last night I found a little bird that my little maltese cross caught. He has a terrible habit of thinking he's been placed on this planet to rid it of birdlife so this isn't the first time it's happened. It breaks my heart to see the little doggie that is otherwise a snuggly teddy bear treat the wildlife this way.
After finding the little bird looking stunned and unable to move, I picked it up and raced it straight down to the Golden Grove emergency vet - this was at about 8.40pm.
The wonderful lady at the desk took the little bird, had a look at it and said that it actually looked ok - mainly just stunned. She took it and said that she would look after it. I can't tell you how grateful I am that such wonderful caring people are there to help.
Thankyou from the bottom of my heart to the wonderful lady at the desk last night and to a practice that I continue to reccommed to many.
A huge thank you to every one. I no longer have pain in my little front legs. I am very happy now and cant wait to run around, chase the cat, and go for walks with my family very soon. Thanks to EVERYONE who helped me and looked after me when I wasnt feeling very well (Dernancourt, Northgate and Golden Grove). Special thanks to Dr Steyn and Dr Turner
To Jarko & all nursing staff,
She seems to be doing fine, despite her numerous problems.
Thank you so very much

For the kind ladies at Ridgehaven Vets4Pets,
You may remember looking after him after Vet Cheryl operated beautifully to remove his right eye. He is doing wonderfully, eating well, thumping well when he considers necessary and still has command of the backyard – our cats will always be wary of him. He has his indoor hutch at night.
So, thank you so much for all that you did for him, your expertise and kindness has not been forgotten.
For 12 years
To Dr Rickman, all your vets, and nursing and boarding staff,
For 12 years of tender and loving care for our babies, for your kindness and help.
We hope we can find someone in Newcastle that will look after our little family like you all have done.

Thank you for your care in treating Georgina and for your thoughtfulness.
Hi, I just thought I'd share a pretty awesome moment we had today. After rescuing our little puppy, Tilly from an uncertain future she became very sick with what was thought to be pavo virus. We bought her into Vets4Pets Golden Grove and she stayed there for a week in intensive care and isolation. We were told they were unsure if she'd survive as she was quite young.
Tilly is now in perfect health and still with us thanks to the staff who did everything they could and gave her all the care she needed.
Today my daughter had a Little Heroes dress up day at school, she chose to go as a vet because of the lovely vets that saved our puppy, she made this decision all on her own!
I'd just like to thank everyone at Golden Grove for everything.
To Brendan and all the Staff,
We just want to thank you for looking after our beautiful boy Jack. We miss him so so much.

The T family
I just wanted to say a big thank you so much for the staff and vets at Golden Grove and at Ridgehaven for everything they did for Qui Gon and for us while he was unwell.
You gave us appointments at short notice and even went out of your way to give us immediate appointments and made sure you got Qui Gon to see your amazing bunny doctors every time. You took such great care of Qui Gon and gave him wonderful care, you showed a lot of care towards him and us with his ongoing issues and when we had to make that awful decision to say goodbye you were honest about his prognosis and for that we are very grateful.
We were so impressed with how your practice has embraced bunnies and we will continue to bring our bunnies to you and feel happy and confident that you are exactly where we need to be. Thanks again, we miss Qui Gon so much, he was out big beautiful baby and it’s been hard we miss him so much.

Thank you so much for your help in finding food for our much loved but fussy cat Chloe. After watching her lose so much weight due to her condition we were desperate for her to eat and could not believe how quickly she inhaled the pack of Royal Canine food.
Your kindness is really appreciated.

Dear Christine, The Vets and all the staff at Vets4Pets.
Thank you to everyone for the loving care and attention given to Mandy over the 15 years she was with us. Mum and Dad took her to you as a puppy. After Mum and Dad had passed away we continued to take her to you for her vet care. You cared for her from her first puppy check up, puppy school right up to the day of her passing at your Golden Grove Clinic on Easter Saturday.
A special thank you to those who assisted us during the last two weeks and on the day of her passing.
Lyn and Ron M.
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! http://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!
Dear Dr Jarko Dobes, Christine, Kylie, Michelle, Amy, Leah, Keira and all the other wonderful staff who assisted in the knee surgery and care of our most adored moodle Max A.

We sincerely thank you for this.

My name is Chris and today you are amputating my cat's (George) leg.
We first came in with george about a month ago with a swolen leg. Since that first appointment we have had to come back a couple of times for check up's and unfortunately georges leg wasn't coming along as well as we all would have hoped so you told us that he would have to have the leg removed.
My partner Mandy was the one who was coming in each time and all your staff have been fantastic to deal with. When we were told that george had to have his leg removed it was only a couple of days after christmas and we have 2 kids so the extra financial burden was something that in all heonesty we couldnt afford, or so we thought. To offer out of goodwill to do the surgery for the price that you are is truely incredible.
I can not thank all the staff at Mawson Lakes enough for your generosity and kindness. I will not hesitate to recommend the Mawson Lakes Vets for Pets to anyone that needs their pets looked at.
Thank you all so much.
