We would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at Manukau After Hours Veterinary Clinic at Manukau. Our wee Daschund “TORI” was very ill, she had spent the day at our regular vets and because she was deteriorating it was decided she needed to be at the A & E for the night. Her blood level was very low and there was a big chance she would need a blood transfusion, she was very weak.
Tori and our family were made to feel so welcome and they reassured us that they had her best interests at heart. We asked them to phone us during the night to update and this was done with no problem or hesitation. We felt Tori was given 100% care and the warmth shown to her was obvious.
Tori has now had a blood transfusion and is on a slow recovery programme. We are hoping she is back to her old self in the near future.
Once again a huge thank you for the wonderful and outstanding care we were all given from the Vets and helpers, we are so grateful.
Cherie Brice and family, Dannemora
"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.
