"Meet Athena and Nootka! Last time you saw them, they were just babies in a wheelbarrow. The blonde one got really sick and needed surgery. She had a giant mass on her pancreas, and had to get 80% of it removed. It was a death or death situation. Well, its been a few years since you saved her life and she is happier then ever and healthy! She isn't allergic to anything, and she loves running, swimming, and camping. We wouldn't have her if it wasn't for you. Thank you for all of your help!" - Keisha
"Thank you for all you do for our furbabies". <3 - Wendy Masterton
"Daisy was all tuckered out from her dental cleaning but she did so well under sedation. Her breath is so much better and her overall health has improved. We are very, very happy with Sunrise Veterinary staff and doctors for taking such great care of her.
Dr. Gastis caught glaucoma starting in her right eye and we got drops for her. All all her health problems have really improved since she started the eye drops. We are so grateful for the great care and attention he takes with her.
Thank you Sunrise Vet Clinic!!!" - Lisa Jennifer Petr
"Thank you so much for taking care of our fur baby, Gypsy during her spay! You guys went above and beyond in all the attention and care you gave her before and after the operation: giving her dinner, because I was late picking her up from work and letting me pick her up past your business hours at no cost, even quickly removing a hernia, that we had no idea she had prior. A HUGE THANK YOU!!" - Nydia Sepulveda
"Thank you Dr. Gastis and the team at Sunrise. You have made this whole experience with Gee bearable. And you have given my dog a second chance. I'm very grateful." - Debbie Craig
"Archer is feeling well enough to steal the ball Kess was playing with. He very quietly got up and snatched it as soon as her back was turned. He's rather pleased with himself.
Thanks, everyone, for pouring so much love and care into our boy!" - Suzanne Orr Giguere

"Two years ago on June 13th Mona had her front leg amputated. She's doing so well I thought we'd have a special day. Well, it turns out she was constipated and had to go see Dr.Stacey and the gang. Thanks to everyone she seems to be doing well now and is eating, playing, and waving her happy tail high up in the air. Thanks for loving my Mona. Two years cancer free!" - Kerren Shalanski

"I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you at Sunrise! I cannot tell you how happy I am with all of the amazing service and care you have given to my dogs and me. Dr. Stacey you and your staff are so kind and caring. It really shows in the attention you give to animals. You all have made a very stressful and emotional time easier. All of you girls are so lovely. From my first contact over the phone, you all made me feel comfortable and at ease with the process. Everything was explained to me in great detail which is something that has not happened for me before. What a refreshing approach! It was well worth coming up from Victoria to see you all! I will be back for all of my vet needs. Again thank you!"
~ Leila Wilson
I seriously love you guys! So caring!

"I brought my small dog into Dr Gastis and his great Staff for some much needed dental surgery and was very pleased at how well they took care of everything, most especially the post-operative care (medication). Now, dental work is never cheap, but the cost at Sunrise was well within the range of anyone’s estimate and I felt that all the people there really cared for the animals they looked after – that they were not just in it for the money. When it is your beloved pet that you are trusting a Vet with, you want to be sure they will look after things just as if the dog or cat were their own."
~ Dan Kyle
"Wilbur wants to thank you and let you to know he’s feeling well after surgery and resting up in his favourite place; in front of the wood stove on his comfy bed!"

"Happy 2015 from Eli and Mona. Here’s Mona developing her core. She was a little impatient with me and grabbed the bowl. She now uses her meerkat pose to see over things or to see high up. Thanks to all the clinic staff for getting rid of the cancer last June. She’s enjoying life."
"That was fun, made my day.. thank you so much, can’t wait to see the pics!
You guys and girls rock! Best care ever."

"Just wanted to give a huge shout out to the clinic for having the puppy socials on Wednesday evenings. Maximus benefited so much from attending these supervised socials. It was also great to have Dr. Gastis drop in on occasion to give advice on behavior and training. This is a great opportunity for puppies under four months old to learn socialization.
Thank you from Maximus."

That is a super clinic, had Pica there.
