Happy #fursday from Vet Nurse Jono and Odie.⁠

Odie, the gorgeous 8 week old Labrador puppy made a visit to our A&E team earlier this month for a stomach upset. Once we'd made sure he was feeling better, we couldn't resist a cuddle.⁠

Meet Ruby 🐾⁠

Ruby is a beautiful 3 year old Springer Spaniel who presented to Dr Alastair Coomer at our Christchurch Hospital at the start of November. ⁠

Ruby had been experiencing persistent abdominal abscesses which her referring vet was trying to get to the bottom of. A CT scan of Ruby's chest and abdomen had revealed a retroperitoneal foreign body which would need Alastair's expertise to remove. ⁠

It is always a team effort at VSA and Ruby's case was no exception. Before she was taken into theatre by Alastair and our incredible nursing team, Dr Angela Hartman performed an abdominal ultrasound to make sure nothing had moved. ⁠

In theatre two grass seed foreign bodies were recovered from Ruby's psoas muscle (lumbar spine region). ⁠


Swipe to see the problem seeds!⁠ For something so small, grass seeds can cause major problems.⁠


Ruby was discharged the day after surgery, albeit with a drain in place and a very stylish new vest and is now recovering well at home. Swipe through to see her enjoying a snooze in her favourite spot. ⁠

Today we have opened our 3rd Specialist Animal Hospital! ⁠

Our newest hospital, in Christchurch, brings our specialist services and treatments previously not available to NZ’s pet owners in the South Island. It's been a little while longer in the works than planned, thanks Covid, but today our newest hospital officially opened its doors.⁠

We extend a huge welcome to our new Christchurch team to the VSA family!⁠

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

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!
