I am extremely impressed and happy with Dr Cindy and her amazing team! They are true animal lovers and my pup was comfortable with her.
I took my pup in Saturday and she immediately recognized that the lump is dangerous and needs to be removed, so he was booked on Monday to be castrated.
She phoned me that night just to check up on him. She phoned again today to follow up on how he is doing – which is very good btw.
Amazing people, so happy I chose for us newbies in town to go to Welgelegen.
Dr Cindy is uitstekend en vat raak. Sy ondersoek eers alle opsies voor sy my gewoonlik leiding sal gee op watter aksie die een gaan wees wat die beste vir my dier sal wees.
Bitter eerlik, en dis al waarvoor ek kan vra.
Het al baie verder as haar beroep ingetree vir my diere en alles in haar vermoë gedoen wanneer dinge hopeloos lyk. Ons is dankbaar vir iemand so deeglik soos Cindy en sy het ons nog nooit teleur gestel en danksy haar het ons ‘n klomp gelukkige en gesonde diere as getuienis daarvan.
You can not go wrong to take your pet to Welgelegen Dierekliniek♥️
Dr Cindy en Dr Waldo is wonderlike Drs. Dankie vir al die hulp, omgee en ondersteuning met my Chloe.
