´╗┐Dr. Henk Basson has been in practice for 39 years and has international experience. He is especially well-known in the endurance riding community and has been treating horses and doing training and endurance rides for the FEI both locally and around the world. Dr. Basson owned a practice in the Free State for 3 decades where he treated both companion and production animals.
During part of this time he also served as the chairperson of the South African Veterinary Association and was involved in great projects e.g. the pet memorial fund and .... Being an animal lover himself, you will come to know him with his dog Jessica who loves to travel with him to farms as well as sweet little Trixie, the yorkie.

Riana Bouwer

 

Riana Bouwer is one of our receptionists. She is married to Chris and
has a beautiful daughter Miante. She joined us again in February 2017
and keeps her free time busy with dwarf rabbits and 2 Yorkshire
terriers at home.
She loves baking decorative cakes and  has the
ability to figure most electronic workings out long after we would
have all given up.

Terry Abrahams

Terry was part if the initial team that started the practice. He left
for just over a year and then joined us again in February 2017. He
covers the afternoon shift and is responsible for making your animals
look beautiful, before they go home. He loves the garden and if left
to his own he will quietly disappear into the garden to go tend to it.
He has a beautiful little 2 year old daughter at home and 2 large
breed cross breed dogs. Simone loves him - especially in the evenings
when it is feeding time ...


Simone

Simone, Mona, Mona Lisa - depends on the mood but this madam joined us about 18 months ago. She started as a stray, became a reception hand and is now just anywhere she wants to be - she thinks she owns the practice. She likes to eat and likes to be fed from everyone - so she demands food from everyone every day. We seem to be fighting the battle of the bulge. Life is as good as it gets though - she lies on the grey filing cabinet all day, looks with disdain at every passing dog, demands and collects her scratch from especially male clients and occasionally risks it onto the parking area and then only to sun herself.
