We at Vet Hospital Port Shepstone believe that pets should be part of our families and therefore they should be valued for their contributions to the family life. As times are changing, our quality of life also changes, for the better or for the worse, but a well behaved, well looked after and loved pet will always devote all its attention towards the caretaker.

As a child I once accidentally loaded my pet dog ‘Casper’ into the boot of my parents’ car as I was loading my schoolbag. We drove all the way to school and after I opened the boot, he was sitting there, wagging his tail and still extremely happy to see me. Try that with any other family member…
