Meet Our Vet

My passion for animals started when I was a young girl. I would volunteer at the Monte Casino Bird Gardens and the local vet during my school holidays. I enjoyed looking after the birds and was fascinated at how the vet was able to help injured animals, so much so that I knew that when I grew up I wanted to work with animals.

A Dream Come True

I worked hard at school to make sure I reached the marks I needed to be accepted into vet school, which paid off as I achieved 5 distinctions. When I heard that I had been accepted into the vet programme, I realized that my dream of becoming a vet was coming true. I studied for 7 years at the University of Pretoria and Onderstapoort.. The vet degree was harder than I had ever imagined, but in the end it was worth it. I graduated in 2010 with an award for applied small animal clinical studies which was my chosen career path. I love working with companion animals like dogs, cats and a variety of exotic pets.

ZUKI is Born

Since graduating, I have been working at a busy private animal practice alongside one of South Africa’s top reproduction specialists. My primary goal is preventative medicine which means I strive to prevent disease and medical conditions and is the main reason why zuki.co.za was born.

Why We Do What We Do

Time is of the essence in our on-the-go lifestyles. We rush off to work (only to sit in traffic), spend the day going at full pace (often surviving on the joy that is caffeine), sit in traffic some more when we leave work, we have to cook dinner, prepare lunches, and then stress about what we need to get done tomorrow. In such a fast paced lifestyle, having one less thing to worry about can make all the difference in the quality time that we have with our friends, families and pets. Our blogs and products are here to give you your time back, with the trusted help of a registered vet.
