The vetcare team

Experts ready to help

Dr Morné de Wet is our principal veterinarian with more than 10 years’ veterinary experience.  He has a love for surgery and has attended numerous surgical courses in order to be able to offer your precious pets more specialised procedures like orthopaedic and spinal surgery. Dr Morné is passionate about his patients and loves nothing more than seeing injuries heal and a patient going home to run around with their family.

Dr Morné is supported by Irish-born and educated Dr Jean Russell who has a background in equine reproduction as well as small animal medicine and surgery, Dr Carina di Sibio who adores cats and Dr Koba Heyns who is passionate about farm animals, particularly alpacas and bunnies.

In addition to surgical and medical services, our practice also offers nutrition advice, a grooming parlour, dental services, an in-house laboratory and imaging and much, much more.

Please give us a call or better yet, pop in to meet the team and start a journey of health with your pet!

“I love being a vet because the bond between pet and pet-parent is priceless. And I have the opportunity to help pets live their happiest, healthiest, pain-free lives."

"I love interacting with clients and building a relationship with them as well as their pet. It’s amazing to give a puppy his first vaccine and see him grow up into such an integral part of the family."
