Johann Viljoen - vetJohann Viljoen - Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated as a veterinary surgeon (BVSc) in 1992 from the University of Pretoria, South Africa. In 2002 I did an extra 3 year post-graduate degree, BVSc (Hons). From 1992 to 1995, I worked in Namibia as a mixed animal practitioner (small animals, cattle and horses). From 1997 I owned a successful private practice for 15 years where I realised my true passion is with small animals. I enjoy all types of surgery, difficult medical cases, ophthalmology and ultrasonography.

At home, I have a female Labrador called Nina, and my male cat named Josef is an absolute character.

I love to listen to classical music, gardening and travelling. I'm addicted to most sports, especially rugby, golf, cricket, gymnastics and Korean martial arts. I believe that the 'human-animal bond' is one of the most emotional experiences there is in life. As a veterinarian, I always endeavour to appreciate this very special bond. I joined the Medivet family as I believe they share the same values.
