What our clients say about Vets4Pets

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
