Successful Pet Relocation to South Africa

Dear small five VET CLINIC - Team,

This is a thank you letter for all you did for Rory our dog who is very much part of our family. We are thankful we chose you to help with importing our dog to South Africa from Kenya. The service you gave us from when our dog was a puppy was outstanding and especially over the February-March months of 2017 where you completed all the necessary paper work and tests that enabled us to import our dog successfully into South Africa. Not only did you assist us with the paper work but you helped us with the booking of our flights, with the agent on the Kenyan and South African side for Rory. Our dog Rory only spent 5 days in quarantine and passed all his tests. We would recommend small five VET CLINIC to anyone who wants to export or import their animals in or out of Kenya.

 

Kind regards,
Robert, Catherine, Ezekiel and Rory Falconer

Surgeries

All surgeries carried out at our practice are handled with utmost care within minimum time possible. Our theater and all equipment within are sterile. This is to minimize arising complications.

When you book your surgical operation at the small five VET CLINIC, our surgeons will explain the whole procedure  to you, cost and complications, before you can sign the surgical consent form. We will give you a follow up call once operation has been completed successfully and another once your pet is fully recovered from anesthetic.

Please note that some procedures demand we board your pet for a number of days to monitor recovery progress as we attend to any arising complications.

Please don't litter - spay or neuter your critter!

Think it can't make a difference if you spay or neuter your pet? Think that your cat or dog is purebred or "has papers" that its offsprings will be of value? Thinking that "just one litter" won't hurt anyone?

Look at the pictures below and think again! And neutering your pet has also other advantages:
  • Female animals on heat attract howling males, more sleep, less noise.
  • Intact males are more likely to roam (and get lost). 
  • Less territorial marking :)
  • Neutering reduces dominance and aggression.
  • Neutering reduces the risk of prostate disorders and other disease.
  • You save animals from being euthanized due to full shelters. 
There's a right time and a wrong time to have the surgery done. Do not neuter too early, your animal needs its reproductive hormones help to develop its bones and joints properly.

Rhodesian Ridgeback Puppy

Happy to have received this cute Rhodesian Ridgeback pup on behalf of client from South Africa yesterday evening. The owner will pick it tomorrow. It's playful, cheeky and very excited to leave its transport box. We gave it a lot of playtime in the garden after the long flight.
