Testimonial

"Dear SCVS team,

This testimonial is long overdue, sorry, but it is still utterly heartfelt!

In January 2014, our German Shepherd, Finnbarr underwent hip replacement surgery for hip dysplasia, when he was just 3 years old.  

The results have been astonishing.  It is clear he feels like a new dog, from the amount of exercise, play and competitive obedience training he is now able to cope with, with ease.  He is so much happier in every aspect of his life, happy to run and play with other dogs (where before, he was reserved and cautious), happy to jump in and out of the car, leap up stairs, swim etc,.

The operation and his recovery were a very worrying time for us but we were so reassured by the excellent level of communication from the SCVS team.  On his return home, we used the 24 hour helpline several times and they always gave us good, practical advice and support. A few weeks later on, Donna and her physiotherapy team were superb and Finney soon started to love his twice weekly trips to the underwater treadmill!  

The follow up yearly check was also excellent with Mr Nicolson. It was very thorough and reassuring.

If anyone is worrying about going ahead with such major surgery for their dog, we would say to them to go ahead with SCVS, your dog will be in excellent hands and it will have a new lease of life afterwards.

With all our grateful thanks,"

Phil qualified from Bristol University Veterinary School in 2005, and worked in mixed practice in Herefordshire for two years, followed by a year in South Africa working with buffalo. On his return to the UK, he took a position as Orthopaedic Intern at SCVS followed by a three year orthopaedic residency. He completed an RCVS certificate in advanced veterinary practice in September 2013 and is due to sit the RCVS Diploma in Veterinary Orthopaedics in 2017.
