Joey’s Pet of the Week

By admin | Dated March 6, 2014

FranHeya gang!! How are you all?? Hopefully you’ve had a better week than me. I had to have a blood test!! And you know how good of a patient I am! As you know, I’m an itchy kitty and Dr John started me on a Cortisone spray to help me. Unfortunately it hasn’t been working so well so I’ve started on a new fancy tablet. Tune in on Tuesday and I’ll tell you all about it in my Tuesday Tip.
We had a double celebration on Tuesday. We celebrated Nurse Emma’s 1year anniversary of starting with us at GVH and it was Nurse Layne’s birthday. And you know what celebrations at GVH mean. CAKE!!! I really like cake so I’m always happy when there are birthdays and anniversaries to celebrate.
Something a little different for you all this week. I thought on the first Thursday of each month, I would tell you about a GVH staff member instead of a pet. That way, you can get to know all of the amazing people who look after me and your 4legged friends. So, to start us off, let me introduce you to Nurse Fran, the newest addtion to the GVH team. Nurse Fran started with us in 2012 as a volunteer in the Duke of Edinburough program and she was FANTASTIC!! She always came in with a smile of her face and was super keen to help us out. She was so keen that she even volunteered to come in for a few hours to help us out on Christmas Day!! As a result of her amazingness, we offered her a job. Nurse Fran started off working casually after school and on weekends, but this year, she has left school and is working with us a lot more. Nurse Fran LOVES working with animals and really wanted to be a part of thier care. Nurse Fran said she was also infulenced by the other Nurses at GVH and wanted to be more involved. Before starting with us, Nurse Fran worked at chemist in Gordon and at a riding school. She says the best part of the job is seeing animals go home happy and healthy after coming in sad and sick and the worst part is that we see a lot of wildlife that comes in and is too sick to be saved. Nurse Fran’s first pet was a Pomeranian x Poodle called Rascal, who she still has today as well as a Groodle (Golden Retriever x Poodle) called Jessie and a horse called Lord. When she’s not a work, Nurse Fran loves nothing more than spending the day with Lord. Be sure to say hello to Nurse Fran when you pop in next.
Well, I had better go. I heard a rumor there was still a little bit of cake left over. Be sure to check out the pictures of Nurse Layne’s birthday cake in my Facebook album. Enjoy the rest of the week, check out my post on Tuesday about my new fancy drugs, and I’ll catch you all later. Meows for now, love from Joey xoxo

I took our little girl Coco for her very first vet visit yesterday. Dr Helen gave Coco a thoroughly check-up and provided me with useful information as the first time puppy owner. Coco is now enrolled in the puppy school and will return back for her 2nd vaccine in a couple of week!

Dr David and the team have provided real care, support and expertise for our furry family members over 25 years. They've also readily taken in injured wildlife. A great team of Vets and nurses - thanks for all you do!

Quality care and advice at every visit. The staff are friendly and informative and genuinely care about your pets. I am 100% confident that my cat and dog always receive the best pet healthcare and as pet parents that's all we want.

Gordon Vet has looked after my golden retriever since she was 9 weeks. Everyone has been amazing and caring with lots of experience. I have been able to ask any questions and always been welcome. Even one day when she stepped on a bee in the evening, they stayed open until we got there and helped her get it out. Thanks to all the staff :-)

Exceptional veterinary hospital. I have been taking my dog here for many years and although I now live in the Eastern Suburbs, I still drive across town to see the Vets at Gordon. The staff are highly skilled, compassionate, friendly and helpful. My 9 year old dog has had 2 knee operations (1 on each knee!) and the outcome of these surgeries far exceeded my expectations. I have been incredibly impressed with the care provided during all of our visits. I would highly recommend Gordon Vet Hospital.

Fantastic and friendly staff who you can tell really care about your pet. Their follow up service is also very reassuring. I also board my cat with Gordon Vet and I feel very comfortable to know he's in safe and caring hands. I'm so glad I found this clinic.

Compassionate, caring and highly skilled veterinary surgeons who treat their patients and owners with respect. The nursing and administration staff are efficient and remember their patients by name which is a lovely touch. A lovely vet practice which despite our Golden Retriever Finn’s complex medical history, is always welcoming to him and he never displays any signs of anxiety when attending. Dr Helen is lovely and a firm favourite of ours!

We found a stray, agitated dog in front of our house last night. We phoned but got no help from the Council ranger who gave two options: tie him up in front yard overnight or "let him loose, he'll find his own way home" :( So we phoned Gordon Vet: they stayed open a few minutes so we could run him up and he could have a bed and dinner. Thank you Gordon Vet Hospital, hope he gets home soon!!! :)

Absolutely love the service here. I switched from other Vets to this Vet as the staff here are quite attentive and really care about your furry baby! I have basically seen most of the Dr's here and all of them so far have been fantastic, friendly and fun to speak with! Easy to locate and enough parking available! 5 Stars indeed!
