Dozer Otte (22 February 2019)
Thank you for the heartfelt message
I wish to express my gratitude for the amount of sympathy and concern from all involved at Bakenkop Vet regarding Dozer’s treatment and care following his diagnosis with Stage 3 Lymphoma.
In particular his vet Dr Bernadine who was also assisted by Dr Johan – thank you both for your concern and treatment of his illness. Thank you for giving us 7 wonderful weeks together. Each week brought its ups and downs but we both made sure our time left together was spent with plenty of laughs, photos, walks , naps and cuddles enough to make the most pampered pup jealous.
Dozer’s condition deteriorated seriously from Saturday afternoon until early Tuesday morning when I had to make the hardest decision of my life and say goodbye to my beautiful boy.
Thank you to sister Marietjie and her assistant Lucky for their compassion and help in assisting after hours. You somehow made a difficult and extremely traumatic experience into something that was actually a beautiful release of suffering.
Lastly to all the ladies at reception a big thank you for your friendly assistance, concern and words of encouragement every time we visited for his check-up.
May the practise continue to deliver such a high standard of veterinary care and to all who work there may you be blessed in abundance.
I am hoping time will heal the void his passing has caused.
