What’s up doc?

Dr Johan Ferreira

The best we can do for our four legged friends is to treat them with respect, compassion and give them love. If you do see that they are not acting normally – it is most probably the start of a disease and seek veterinary help early. Prevent any serious diseases by following simple health plans and ensure that you are always in a financial position to give the best medical (veterinary) care by taking out a medical plan such as Petsure or one of the others available. This allows you to budget in a structured way to obtain treatment when necessary and have insurance against major and often costly problems. Avoid own induced problems by overfeeding (obesity) and feeding poor quality foods.

“Since I have known, I loved to work with animals and biology and biochemistry intrigued me. I even bought my own microscope in Grade 8 (still in use). The reason I like being a Vet, is because I love and like working with animals. I know I can make a difference in their lives even if they cannot tell us what is wrong. I enjoy seeing people’s lives being enriched by their pets and to know that I can aid in this human-animal bond.”

Dr Carina Rynders
