"Our story begins on 10 July with our 7 year old Rottie, Jonah throwing up during the day and then foaming at the mouth in the evening. On further inspection we discovered his stomach was distended and we phoned our local vet only to be told to call After Hours, Manukau.
Fortunately for us, and Jonah, Kaye explained he would need immediate surgery as she suspected he had a twisted stomach (GDV). Jonah was operated on straight away, with his parents remaining somewhat shell-shocked, and Kaye phoning early the next morning to relay Jonah was out of surgery and in recovery.
After several days of excellent care, Jonah was getting better, but was not out of the wood yet. With wonderful follow-up texts from Kaye every couple of days, Jonah regained strength and found his appetite, all systems were returning to normal, what a relief! By the time he had his stitches removed 2 weeks later, you would never have known he had so closely cheated death; and as we later realised, not all dogs are so lucky.
We can't thank Kaye and all the girls at Manukau After Hours Veterinary Clinic enough for saving and caring for our Counties boy, and for all the kindness and on-going support we received"

We brought our cat Max in one Sunday night in April (pictured with me). Upon arrival, he was taken away in critical condition. The news wasn't good unfortunately, and the decision was made to put him to sleep as his condition had worsened. It was an extremely upsetting experience as our kids were with us. All the staff we dealt with that night were very supportive and as helpful as possible. What a lovely surprise to find a beautifully written sympathy card in the post one day. On behalf of myself and my family, we thank you very much for the support and kind words during our time of sorrow.
