Tina had a disc extrusion

Tina had a disc extrusion

Once comfortable Tina returned home to her family with discharge instructions and oral medications and continued to make an excellent recovery

Jacques and the team cared for our dog Gunner. The referral was very prompt and we were seen within a couple of hours of referral (we live an hour and a half away so referral couldn’t be quicker).
Turned out, Gunner had a spinal cord blood clot and surgery was required.

We can’t thank the whole team enough for everything they done for our ‘wee boy’. Jacques was professional, compassionate and very informative, allowing us to make informed decisions. His expertise and skill saved Gunner! We can’t thank him enough.

Our boy is quite needy so can only imagine how much care and attention the nurses gave him. Their hard work is massively appreciated. They really have helped his recovery.

The admin team were professional, compassionate and friendly too.. always helps when you are thinking the worst of a treasured family pet.
We can’t rate Vet Extra Neurology Stirling highly enough… Thank you all.

Jacques, you are a saint! The work that you do, the miracles that you perform along with your calm, professional and compassionate manner will always be remembered.

Thank you for taking such good care of my wee Alfie aka. Doodles. Also a huge thank you to Kerry and the other vet nurses who looked after him and loved him the way that his own family does.

We are only at the start of a long journey of recovery but I feel hopeful he will eventually once again live a normal and happy life.
