Family Pet Centre is proud to be the first in South Africa that offers an in-house Veterinary Clinic (meaning a Vet inside a Pet shop). Family Vet Clinic is a full-service, primary care animal clinic.
Family Vet offers three consulting rooms, both cats and dogs have their own dedicated consultation room. Furthermore, the veterinary clinic is fully equipped with the newest state of the art full digital radiology machine and ultrasound equipment. In-house blood chemistry and haematology testing are available. Finally, two fully equipped surgical theatres are at hand.
The kennel facilities have been specifically designed and built for our patients that have to be hospitalised. Many of the patients are day visitors, having to undergo general anaesthesia or procedures which requires close observation and care. A separate isolation unit offers the very sick animals a safe environment to protect themselves and other animals against dangerous viruses, infections or other transmitted diseases.

At Family Vet Clinic you’ll find people who love their pets and are dedicated to providing the same compassionate care for your animals that they would expect for their own. Dr Tessa Brouwer is the head veterinary physician. Originally from The Netherlands, she has lived in South Africa for more than a decade. She studied a Master’s degree in Animal Sciences at a Wageningen University in Holland and came to South Africa initially for half a year to conduct research for her thesis. She met her husband and decided to stay completing her Veterinary Science degree at Onderstepoort faculty of the University of Pretoria in 2014. Read more about the team, here.
