I feel like it's time to post something here for Germany, I cannot be the only one here 🙂
Manni has been in the care of Prof. Nickel at the http://www.tier.....tartseite/
The amputation was done by Dr. Wagner, who is an orthopedic surgeon, Chemo and everything 'internal' was done by Prof. Nickel. We love him. We have always felt to be in very good hands and if you go on such a terrible journey, the vets tend to become very close to you, especially since they get to see you in some of your darker hours.
I always felt that every advice we were given was very sound and competent. Every vet technician at the clinic was very sympathetic with Manni (and myself) and even 14 months later they still remember him by name and stop to pet him.
The clinic has specialists for almost everything (from ophtamologists to even radiation specialists). It pays to make specific appointments with the certain specialist because, like in all clinics, if you go in in without appointment you will get whoever's on duty. But even then, if they deem it necessary they will consult with the specialist as soon as possible.
I am sure there's always something negative on can say about all vet clinics, but I will always go back there and am very thankful for their competence and their diagnostic capabilities and their kindness.
I also would like to mention Ina Seggel at http://www.hund.....rstedt.de/ . No ties to the vet clinic. She has been very important in Manni's recovery and ongoing well-being. She does hydro-therapie but we usually do physiotherapy and muscle/balance-exercises. We love her!!
And maybe it makes sense to write this in German?
Ich würde gerne und unbedingt Prof. Nickel von der http://www.tier.....tartseite/ empfehlen. Manni's Amputation wurde von dem orthopädischen Chirurgen Dr. Wagner durchgeführt, die Chemo und alle weiteren internistischen Dinge von Prof. Nickel.
Wir fühlen uns in der Klinik hervorragend aufgehoben, die Helfer/innen kennen Manni heute noch mit Namen und erkundigen sich nach ihm. Grundsätzlich ist die Klinik für mich empfehlenswert, da die diagnostischen Möglichkeiten dort wirklich hervorragend sind und es für fast alle Fälle einen Spezialisten gibt. -Dafür unbedingt einen Termin machen.
Ich bin mir sicher, dass man immer über jede Klinik etwas negatives sagen kann, aber wir fühlen uns wirklich gut betreut und beraten und versorgt.
Desweiteren würde ich gerne Ina Seggel von http://www.hund.....rstedt.de/ empfehlen, die ganz viel damit zu tun hat, dass Manni heute so fit ist, wie er ist. Sie hat auch ein Unterwasserlaufband, wir machen aber hauptsächlich Physio und Muskel-/Balanceaufbau. Wir lieben Ina! 🙂
Sorry if this looks strange to you 🙂
