About Us

We are veterinary enthusiasts and we decided to develop this web page for the Veterinary community.

The goal of this website is to help, gather veterinary enthusiasts from all around the world and share useful information with fellow members. We try to impact veterinary medicine positively and be part of the growth and the development of the veterinary field.

On our blog you can read about the latest news and some common information in the veterinary field. You can see the surgery or procedures videos and learn something new everyday. Our info-graphics about animal diseases, care and dog breeds are here to give you a more visual understanding of the topics.

We are NOT an official veterinary medicine organization. We are a community that offers to share information with veterinary enthusiasts. We are not here to give out veterinary advice, you should always consult your veterinarian.

 She enjoys long walks in nature, staying active and caring for her seven pet companions. Her friends joke that she’s an “all kind of animal” person and she’s often the first one they turn to when they need animal care advice.

Kaylee Ferreira
Kaylee Ferreira, DVM
Writer

Originally from the deep eastern suburbs of Johannesburg in South Africa, I grew up fairly feral, without shoes, on a farm surrounded by pets of all shapes and sizes. I have always kept close company with animals but never thought that they would be such a big part of my life by becoming a part of my career. I love being a veterinarian as it is such a diverse occupation, always changing and always challenging. I qualified as a vet in 2015 from Onderstepoort.
