Our team consists of veterinarians, veterinary nurses, receptionists, kennel hands and cleaners. Every member has a main focus: your pet’s care and well-being, and excellent client service.

Veterinarians:

Doctors Jackie, Jennifer, Kirsten and Samantha are caring and compassionate. They always ensure the highest standards of care for their patients and take the time to explain things to make sure that our clients are involved and part of the decision making when it comes to their animals.

They are committed to continuous professional development and stay up to date with the latest developments in the field of veterinary science.

Nurses:

Sister Gerda and Sister Zenani is our qualified veterinary nurses. They steps our patient care up to a new level by making sure our patients receive all the attention they deserve. She is available to answer questions, give advice and provide extra love and care to your pets.

 

Receptionists:

IMG_5197You will be greeted with a smile by our friendly receptionists: Jade, Grace and Antoinette. They are not only efficient at dealing with your needs but can also give you advice on any diet, weight management, tick and flea control and toys and accessories. They are trained veterinary nutritional advisors and also run free weight clinics if your pet needs to shed a few pounds. We pride ourselves in going the extra mile for our clients so please don’t hesitate to ask us and we will try our best to help.

Kennel hands:

Trust, Fortune, Jabulani, Frans, Fredrick and Mabbie are an integral part of our team. They are all trained to handle animals with confidence and care. They form a special bond with our patients which is evident to all and are always eager to help, whether it is to hold or walk your dogs, carry food to your car or give nutritional advice. They are a huge asset to our practice.

Resident Practice Pets:

Indie is our very loved practice dog that was a stray that came through the practice. After the staff fell in love with him it was decided that we would give him a loving forever home. He is spoilt with attention especially by Mabbie who is always willing to give him extra love.

Our newest addition is ginger Pax, our semi-feral, who adopted us and used to live in our garden. He is now sleeping inside at night, and can occasionally be found getting love from the staff in the back of the clinic.
