Experience with animals and own pets

Animals have been a big part of my life, and have always been a part of the family. Growing up with pets of all shapes and sizes- dogs, cats, rodents and reptiles- it is a natural instinct to love all of them. I grew up surrounded by these amazing pets, but I also grew up interacting and loving wildlife as we lived on a game reserve for a large part of my childhood. I've been a passionate horse rider for most of my life, and it's still a big part of who I am.

Adopt don't shop-mentality had blessed me with a beautiful lab-spaniel cross that lives with my dacshund, a Rottweiler and a cat at my parents' house. I share my everyday life with two rescue cats with enough personality and attitude for the whole of Pretoria. One of them I had to raise from the young age of 2 weeks. This made me all too thankful for all my time spent helping and working at the vet.

I grew up respecting and loving all animals, so your fur-, feather- or scale-baby will be in the best possible care, getting all the love and attention they need.
