Sas Hohepa

Sas Hohepa

I felt the need to send this e-mail to show my gratitude and appreciation of Alastair’s treatment of both my dog Sas and of me. Sas needed surgery and I was extremely anxious that as an older dog she may not make it through the surgery, Alastair made me feel comfortable, by explaining the procedure, what outcomes we could expect and that it would be unusual for the outcome to be a sad one. He allowed me time to make the decision without any...

Beau Bulte

Beau Bulte

My heartfelt thanks to Richard Jerram and the staff of VSG® for restoring my little mate, Beau, to the sunny-natured character he was before suddenly taking ill and hovering on the brink. Two years ago, out of the blue, Beau developed life-threatening autoimmune meningitis. It has been a long road back as he battled both the first onset and a relapse. Although he will never be cured, it seems a balance has finally been achieved between the...

Henry Swan 2

Henry Swan

Hi Mark and team Thought you might be interested to hear that Henry turned 20 on Tuesday! He’s such an amazing old man and I’m so proud of him. It was nearly six years ago now that he was diagnosed with lymphoma, and nearly five years since his old kidneys packed up. He’s stone deaf these day and has arthritis, but seems determined to hang in there a bit longer. Cheers Lyndsey

Charlie in Hammock

Charlie Scheurich

Hi Dr Alex, Once again I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the brilliant work you have done on and for my cat Charlie. He is doing well, albeit in a cage, and likes the attention when I can give it to him. He is taking his meds well (I am a bit surprised as previously he has not been cooperative about taking pills), and he is taking the pain killer meds in the food too. He would very much like to get out and about, but I am...

Ruby Sutherland

Ruby Sutherland

  In 2010 Ruby was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, an anal carcinoma. Our specialist Richard explained all aspects of the diagnosis thoroughly, enabling us to make a decision to undergo ten year old Ruby’s surgery. We were impressed with the subsequent follow-up where all aspects of her care were handled sensitively and professionally. Ruby’s next chapter was palliative and here Mark went to great lengths to explain her...

Ed Langbrown

Ed Langbrown

To the extraordinary team at VSG®, We cannot thank you enough for saving Ed’s life. Looking at him today, racing frenetically around Waiatarua reserve, it’s hard to believe that only a few months ago he’d broken his neck in four places and was unable to stand or walk. We named Ed after Sir Edmund Hilary because, well, he’s a Jack Russell and up for anything. Sadly, his upbeat approach to life backfired when, in early December...
