Glenbrook has been caring for our family dog Sophie, a miniature dachshund, for several years now and we have always been more than satisfied with the level of care that she has received.
Shortly after Sophie turned fourteen last year she had a serious medical incident that caused her to lose the use of her hind end. As it was after hours we had an emergency vet attend to her. We were quickly advised that we would have to put Sophie down as there was nothing that could be done to help her at her age.
Later that day we took Sophie to Glenbrook for their opinion. Both my husband and I made it perfectly clear that we were not willing to keep Sophie alive for our sakes alone and that we wanted what was best for her. After examining Sophie, Glenbrook advised us of several options some of which they did not offer such as specialized neurological surgery. We chose to have the surgery done and Dr. Hasselaar had a referral in so quickly, we were able to meet with the surgeon at Canada West Veterinary Specialists the following morning and Sophie had the surgery the same afternoon. We did follow-up physiotherapy at Canada West and hydrotherapy at Waterworkz. The procedure was a success and we’re so thankful for the positive outcome. Sophie just turned 15 and is running around, loves swimming, a very happy girl.
We would like to thank Susan and the entire Glenbrook family for doing what was best for our girl. Not only did they see to Sophie’s well being but ours as well. We are very pleased to offer this testimonial as Glenbrook will continue to be our vet of choice.
