"An everlasting thank you from Mvula, liver-nosed ridgeback with very long legs from Kloof, to all the wonderful vets and support staff who helped her back from the edge after being cut up by a huge male monkey early one Sunday morning late June, and almost bleeding to death. Mvula turned three on Tuesday 6th August, but only thanks to you guys. Mvula remembers every one of your faces, miraculously available to help her, even on a Sunday morning when everything else was closed. She just loves coming back to see you, even to be stapled or unstapled or cuddled and told she's doing well.
It's terrific to have you there on the doorstep, open 24/7, and with a new mobile service too, operating from Monday to Friday. We can't do much about the monkeys but at least there is somewhere to go when they strike. And strike they did. Litres and litres of blood and numerous wounds. All now in the past thanks to all of you. Thanks again, from all of us"
