Which vet do I see?

Who can help me?

 

All of our veterinarians can see your dog or cat for any problem but many are specialists or have special interests so it is always best where possible to see the right vet first time.

 

If you are unsure who to book an appointment with please call reception on 012 991 3573 and they will assist or just book to see your favourite vet.

 

Vaccinations and general check-ups are seen by all of our GP veterinarians and can be seen at any time, see our opening times.

 

Our specialist veterinarians Dr Salome Nagel (medicine) and Dr Adriaan Kitshoff (surgery) take referral patients internally from our own veterinarians and from veterinary practice all over Southern Africa.

If you can’t see the vet of choice don’t worry our vets work as a very close team and discuss cases and get assistance when they need to.

 

Our hospital support team includes Dr Gareth Zeiler, Specialist Anaesthetist for high risk anaesthetic cases, pain management and critical care patients and Dr Robert Kirberger, Specialist Radiologist for advanced CT and ultrasound Scans, as well as a large team of qualified veterinary nurses.

 

We also have two animal physiotherapists on staff, Nadia van der Merwe and Emre Pienaar. Physiotherapy is an essential part of pain management, post-operative rehabilitation for orthopaedic patients and is often useful for obese pets as part of a weight loss program and for elderly pets to maintain mobility.
