Buddy came to us in early July 2015 as he had been limping on his right hind leg after he ran to greet his owner one day. Dr. Grubac determined that he had ruptured his ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), which would require surgical repair with an orthopedic specialist. After taking some x-rays, we then discovered that poor Buddy also had bladder stones! The owners decided that it would be best to remove the bladder stones while Buddy was here for the orthopedic surgery.
Buddy came back a few days later for his surgeries with Dr. Kahlon. Everything went smoothly and Buddy stayed overnight with us while he recovered.
After the surgery, Buddy had some weekly cartrophen injections to help with his joints, and the owners changed his diet to prevent more bladder stones. Now Buddy is doing physio at home with his owners’ help, and they are slowly re-introducing walks and exercise.

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.
