Thank you to Dr. Delport and his staff for taking such good care of tinkerbell after she ended up in a fight with another dog.
6 months or so ago, Dr Renier Delport and his staff took in a tiny little kitten that was found on the side of the road with a broken leg. She was malnourished and could barely walk. That little kitty ended up in our home and became known as Yoda. It took time but she grew strong. One day she discovered running was easier than walking and she became the terror of the house. Somewhere along the line she stole my heart like only one other animal ever has. Last night our giant Boerbul, annoyed with her near his food snapped at her and caught her in the face with his teeth. We thought we were going to loose our little kitty. On instructions from Dr Delport, who came out at 9 at night to see to her, we stayed up all night making sure the bleeding nose didn't suffocate her and this morning she was back at the vet. By some miracle, despite the size difference between the 2, the only severe damage was to her left eye which had to be removed. Thanks to Dr Delport's emergency treatment last night and his surgical skills this morning Yoda is back at home. I cannot thank Dr Delport and his staff enough for saving her. They are truly incredible people. She has a long recovery ahead but she is a fighter of the first order. The force is strong with this one.
Dr Delport and staff very caring and professional. Thank you for your empathy!!
I think Dr Delport is wonderful and kind and always goes the extra mile. The ladies at reception are just as wonderful.
Best care for my furry family
