Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all our clients – those who have been with us for years and those who have just started coming to see us! We hope everyone had a happy, restful holiday break and wish all a great 2021.

We are very fortunate to have two dedicated receptionists here at East Coast Bays Vets. – Teri and Shannon. These two lovely ladies work hard every day directing phone calls, emails, reports and working through piles of paperwork as well as greeting our clients and pets who arrive for surgery and appointments. They field all sorts of pet-related questions daily and always ensure they get the best answers and advice for our clients. Teri and Shannon are the first two friendly faces you see when you enter our clinic – next time you pop in with your pet or to grab some food, toys or parasite control, say hello!

Last year one of our veterinary nurses Rhiannon went on maternity leave after the birth of her and our vet Campbell's second beautiful daughter. Rhiannon started back part-time in December and is enjoying being back in the bustling clinic environment and the team is pleased to have her back on board. Rhiannon and Campbell have just celebrated Brianah's 1st birthday!

Another reminder that we have an online shop available for purchasing pet food, flea and worm and other over-the-counter products, some of which can't even be purchased in store! The shop contains a huge range of products for your pets and makes shopping for your fur babies so much easier, with free shipping on orders over $50.00. To access the shop from our website, visit www.ecbvet.co.nz and click on the "Shop" section or if you would like to do it via Facebook, head to our page, send us a message and our virtual vet nurse Katie will provide you with some options – just choose shop!

 Our head surgeon and practice director Dr Steve Gordon is now trained in performing another advanced procedure, the tibial plateau levelling osteotomy (TPLO). This is a technical orthopaedic procedure performed on dogs to stabilise the knee joint when damage to the cruciate ligament has occurred. This sadly is a very common injury in pet dogs so we are pleased to be able to offer all the best procedures available for this condition.

 We have more exciting plans to improve our services and facilities for you in 2021, so watch this space.

 Best wishes to you and your pets

From the team at East Coast Bays Vet
