Experience with animals and own pets

I have grown up surrounded by pets, as my parents are big animal lovers. I have had pets ranging from cats and dogs (big and small) to fish, other reptiles and hamsters. I currently have a beautiful Labrador-Spaniel cross named Lily, a big lovable Rottweiler named Eva, and a very lively kitten named Mollie. I have family and friends that are in the veterinary industry, so I do have a lot of knowledge about animal health and I am free to ask them for help anytime.

I adopted Lily from the SPCA two years ago and she is the most loving dog in the world, and has found her place in our family very quickly. Both Eva and Lily love swimming and going for walks, even though Lily has not mastered walking in a straight line yet.

I also have experience in looking after strangers and families’ houses and pets, thus this is not a new environment for me. I take part in a lot of fundraisers held by Onderstepoort Veterinary School in support of animal health and education.
