Not only am I one of Dr. Carroll’s first clients but I have also been privileged to work for him as well, (I was an “escaping” R.N. at the time). My pair of Cairn Terriers, Bronson, Male aged 4, and Echo, female aged 1,-when we “joined”, were cared exclusively during their lives by Dr. Lorne Carroll and his staff. Both, unfortunately, had chronic health issues, so we regularly availed ourselves of the excellent diagnostic and therapeutic services they offer. 

This community is fortunate to have a vet with Dr. Carroll's abilities, for he’s not only an exceptional diagnostician, but a gifted surgeon as well-something I have personal experience with! During my time as a “Staff Animal Nurse”, we also acquired “Russell”, a loving, big tabby who was rescued from certain death when found roadside critically injured, and brought to us with “multiple trauma”. After repeated surgeries, thoughtfully funded by Happy Cat Haven, he came home with me. His story has been published in the “Tank Report”—a great honor, and I am proud to say he’s alive and well and thriving in Pender Harbour. 

Over the 15 or so years with SAH, I have experienced constant warmth and concern from all the staff, not only during the years of “Cairn care”, but especially when they met their inevitable-but always painful-farewell. I am proud of my association with SAH, and gladly, and gratefully recommend their services for the highest quality animal care on the Coast.
