What Our Clients Say

  • I have been a client of Petsavers Somerset West for plus minus the last 12 years.  Because my animals play a very important role in my life I have very exacting standards as to how I want them treated when the time presents itself.  The vets and staff during this time have got to know my dogs personally and have only treated them and myself with honesty and integrity.  In the past year a Toy Poodle joined my family and I have used their grooming service as well, and always been satisfied as to how this little girl looked after her sessions.  Having a Poodle also introduced me to their other products, namely doggie bling of which there is a decent amount of, not to mention the huge amount of food products also on offer.   Dr Gail Lombardi from Petsavers offers a service where if needed she will come to my home to treat to my dogs or vaccinate, naturally if there is something seriously wrong she will refer me back to Dr Brett Lourens of Petsavers for further treatment. I would never hesitate to recommend Dr Brett Lourens and Dr Gail Lombardi to anyone who cares about the welfare and health of their animal family.

  • I have been a client of Pet Savers and Dr Brett Lourens for 10 years now.  He and his very capable team has looked after my Siamese and Abyssinian cats since they were kittens.  Their compassion, love and care for my cats has been incredible.  Dr Lourens has treated my cats as if they were his own, treating from minor ailments through to life-threatening conditions with the utmost thoroughness.  Dr Lourens also treated my friends' King Charles spaniel and when they thought they would lose her, he managed to bring her back to them.  I can thoroughly recommend Dr Lourens and the team at Pet Savers.

  • The veterinary shop is a pleasure to support.  The staff are knowledgeable on all the products that are on sale and give friendly, useful advice and guidance, from nutrition and diet to health and hygiene related matters.  They are always professional, even when irate customers are a handful.  One can discuss any issues about your animals with any of the staff and they will always give handy advice and suggestions.

  • During their annual visit to Dr Lourens, my dogs get an extra treat and get washed at the parlour of the veterinary practice.  The parlour staff are very friendly and efficient and treat my dogs with the utmost care and attention.  The dogs are taken for regular walks during the day as they have to stay there for the whole day whilst I am at work.

  • Dr Brett Lourens is very friendly and professional.  My furry kids go to him every year for their injections and I have never fetched them from their outing looking unhappy.  Both my dogs have had minor mishaps as a result of playing and Dr Lourens accommodated them at short notice without any hesitation.  I would highly recommend his practice to any animal mommies and daddies.
