Read A.D. Viljoen bio

My initials also serve as my name and when pronounced in my home language Afrikaans this sounds near enough like 'Ardia'. I have been practising as a vet for 11 years, about half of that time in my home country South Africa and the last 5 years in the UK. I am a firm believer in Relationship-Centred Care in which all treatment options for any condition are discussed with the animal's owner, after which a joint decision on which option is best for the animal and their owner is made between the vet and the client. I gained extensive knowledge working as a lecturer for a few years in a gold standard academic hospital in South Africa. During this time I also ran a weekly bush clinic, parking a car and trailer under a tree in the African bush and dealing with whatever animals were presented to me for treatment. I also worked all over South Africa as a contract worker in mixed animal practice and I made the move to dealing with pet animals exclusively at the same time as I moved to the UK. In London I was based in one of the best rated practices for client service in the country for two and a half years. I enjoy maintaining my broad experience base in small animal practice and doing so at a high standard. I have a General Practitioners Certificate in Small Animal Medicine which means I have undertaken further study on how to deal with more complicated medical cases. I enjoy doing ultrasound and general surgery and, as I am conscious that referral is not an option for every client, I also maintain my skills in routine orthopaedic surgery. Three years ago I moved to Exeter to start a family and, together with my wife and daughter, we are very excited to have made our more recent move to Torquay. We have a very special and demanding cat called Pixie, originally a patient that eventually came home with me. Pixie enjoys endlessly provoking our dog, Lefienja, who is a young boxer-collie cross. Lefienja is both very busy and very stubborn. When asked as to what we were thinking at the time we got this particular cross-breed, our answer is "we are not quite sure" but we love her to bits and she is our daughter's favourite thing in the whole wide world.

Vets4Pets Torquay is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!

The friendly team can't wait to meet all of their new clients!
