Loki is a gorgeous 17-week-old Ragdoll kitten who was admitted to our Sylvia Park hospital after presenting to our VS A&E team with obvious trauma to his left hindlimb. Radiographs taken confirmed that he had broken his distal tibia.
He stayed with the VS A&E team over the weekend and was then referred to Dr Richard Jerram for surgery. Loki was discharged back to his owners with the latest in kitten accessories, a bandage and an e-collar!
Loki, we can’t wait to see you back each week for bandage changes and kitten snuggles!

Arnie is a 10 month old Bernese Mountain Dog who presented to Dr Richard Jerram at VSA Sylvia Park after being referred all the way from VetEnt Cromwell in the South Island.

Arnie had a several month history of lameness in both of his front limbs and had recently had a CT scan. The scan had shown evidence of significant elbow dysplasia with fragmentation of the medial coronoid processes on both sides.

Being such a boisterous and excitable puppy, it was difficult for Richard to do a full orthopaedic exam without the help of 3 nurses giving Arnie plenty of cuddles to distract him from what was happening. Richard’s assessment confirmed the CT findings of elbow dysplasia in both of Arnie’s elbows.

Arnie was anaesthetised, prepped for theatre and surgical treatment with bilateral elbow arthroscopy, including fragment removal, and a proximal ulna osteotomy of the right ulna was performed.

Arnie recovered well from surgery and was discharged after spending two nights in hospital. Richard gave Arnie some strict instructions for 6 weeks of confinement. He will then get another set of radiographs done at 6 weeks post op to make sure his ulna is healing well. Richard expects Arnie to make a good recovery and be back to full puppy mode in no time.

Thanks Arnie, you have many fans here at VSA. We can’t wait to hear about your recovery.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

We took our 18 year old cat to be put down as she had become unwell and although it was upsetting to say goodbye the team at VSA were very caring and kind. Thanks goes to the team at Sylvia Park, you do a great job and I highly recommend your services.

Amanda Lane

Had my elderly cat put down over the weekend as she suddenly got very unwell , kind caring nurses looked after us. Highly recommend.

Pamela Hayde

Highly recommended! Our cat had minor surgery at our usual vet, but unfortunately the wound opened on a weekend when our vet was closed. VSA were so helpful and the team were extremely kind. It’s very good to know VSA are there 24/7 to help. Thank you!

Susan R

We phoned VSA over the weekend with concerns over our cat, Oscar who had a nasty bite wound – we received wonderful advice over the phone. We ended up taking our cat in to the Sylvia Park branch and we were looked after Dr H Lu. She was absolutely amazing. She had a calming presence and despite being in pain, our cat was relaxed and calm with her. Dr Lu was very caring and you could tell she truly cares and loves animals. She took her time examining Oscar and treating him and spent a great deal of time patiently explaining everything to us and answering our questions. I was very impressed and touched by her compassion and caring nature. Dr Lu explained the charges and checked it was all ok before proceeding which was good. She was not pushy and we really felt she went over and above particularly in an emergency when we were stressed and concerned. Very impressed!

Christine Ranjan

I ended up here with my poor cat whom I ran over by accident over Easter. I was extremely happy with the service I received. The staff were all very friendly, professional and had great communication. The vet we dealt with was thorough and knowledgeable. It was a very stressful day knowing I’d injured my poor pet, but the staff were really lovely. Thank goodness my cat is ok and used the first of his 9 lives. I am really grateful for the quality, honest care they provided. Thank you to the team at VSA.

Nicky Lowe

Looked after my darling girl when she suddenly passed overnight. Staff and facility were great. I felt at peace leaving her with this team. Treatment towards me was very caring after she had parted.

Connyr Atiga

We have taken our puppy to VSA for two incidents, one being a broken leg. Their service was impeccable – the staff are all wonderful to deal with and thanks to their work our pup’s broken leg healed in the best possible way after surgery. In a stressful situation, it really put our mind at ease knowing our pup was getting the best care possible. Highly recommend VSA.

Siobhan O'Sullivan

Amazing people, truly care for the animals. Highly recommended if you need a top-class surgeon.

Alysia Redmond

Thanks to the team at VSA for performing surgery on my bulldog who had Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome. They looked after her very very well. We got plenty of updates while she was in there. Great team, amazing job!
