Mama came to us in January 2013 when she was left on our doorstep in a broken down crate. Upon bringing her in we realized...she was pregnant! To our luck, we had an ultrasound specialist coming in that day to the hospital. The ultrasound showed us 4 kittens. One day in early February, she started going into labour - she had 4 lovely kittens! When we came in the next day, to our surprise, she had 3 more! Sadly, one did not survive. She was a very protective and loving mother - hence her name! Her kittens stayed with us until they were old enough to be adopted out.
Since then Mama has been very happy staying here at South Point, and has become very well known to our clients! She can usually be found in one of her 3 favourite spots: on a chair in the Comfort Room, the top tier of the cat tree in the lobby, or "helping" the girls in reception by sitting in front of the computers with them!
Keido came to us as a patient in 2006, when he was 7 years old. We continued to see him yearly for his wellness exams. In 2012, his owners came to us with some concerns - he had been urinating around the house and having some behaviour issues and they did not know what to do. We got permission from the owners to take Keido in to our care, with the plan to find a home that was perfectly suited for him. Unable to find a good match, Keido now lives with us. You won't see him up front with Tyson and Mama as he can still be a little wary of people and other animals, but he has definitely come a long way!
We are still looking for a good home for Keido. We believe he would be happiest in a quiet, calm, 1 person household - no kids and no other pets. If you think you or someone you know may be a good match for Keido, please let us know! You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, call us at 604-531-8222, or come in and talk to us!
At South Point Pet Hospital we work with the Surrey SPCA to ensure their cats and dogs are spayed or neutered and tattooed prior to adoption. We also see SPCA animals needing veterinary assessments or treatment.
This is how we met "Tyson" in 2006 when he was 8 months old. He was hit by a car and the SPCA brought him to us for care. We determined that Tyson would need to stay with us for treatment. His x-rays revealed that his lower left hind leg was severely dislocated and would require amputation. After such a major surgery, we knew it would take time him time to adjust to missing the limb. Since he had such a great personality and seemed to get along quite well with our clinic cat, we decided that he would stay with us and remain in the care of our hospital.
Sadly, on May 25th 2015, Tyson passed away suddenly due to complications from a thromboembolism. For nine years Tyson was a huge part of our clinic and he is missed daily. We could not have asked for a better mascot. He loved all the attention and treats provided to him by everyone that came into our clinic.
Tyson we will always miss the jingle of your collar as you ran around the clinic, your impatient meow when you wanted food or treats, your hugs and kisses, and your sweet spirit.
Rest in peace, little man.
I have been with the South Point Vet Hospital for 2 years now. My two cats, namely Simba and Amber, now 17 years old have become regular visitors to the clinic.
After initial testing, their kidneys were failing due to protein intolerance due to their ages. As well as changing their diet to low protein food, dry and wet, they also have liquids intravenously every two weeks to help with their kidney functions. They seem to be doing well with this treatment. I shudder to think what the outcome would have been if Dr. Grubac had not gone down this route or been patient enough to try.
Dr. Grubac is a patient, dedicated and most of all, a good listener that seems to find alternative solutions that one can try to help with my cats' condition. She is all about the animals but is also very compassionate with the owners!!!
I am so happy with this clinic and the efforts of Dr. Grubac and all the staff at the clinic. They always greet you with a smile and cannot do enough to assist wherever needed. They are always taking in animals either found or from the SPCA and endeavor to find homes for them which is not an easy task.
Thank you again to the South Point Vet Hospital for their compassion and generosity towards all animals.
