Petpassion Animal Clinic focuses on providing comprehensive practice of exceptional quality for dogs, cats, horses, sheep, cattle, wildlife in the Buffelspoort / Mooinooi / Rustenburg area.
We will strive to provide reassurance & peace of mind to pet owners who contact us. We do emphasize the human-animal bond and quality of life.
Our vision is to succeed through client satisfaction, personal and professional enrichment and reinvestment into the practice and the community. We believe that practicing high quality, ethical medicine along with providing care for our clients as well as our patients gives everyone in the practice a much greater job satisfaction and helps our hospital to thrive.
Dr Fida Young started Petpassion Animal Care in Mooinooi in 2013. As the business grew Dr Fida Young created the company now known as Petpassion Animal Care registered as same on 7 February 2014. Since then, the company expanded from small animal veterinary medicine, into a mixed practice dealing with a wide variety of cases. In 2015 Dr Henri Olckers joined our team bringing a whole new dimension to the practice with his love of wildlife and knowledge in small animals. Dr Fida Young undertook further studies completing her Honors in Small Animal Surgery mid-2018 and now enjoys the challenge of more complicated orthopedic and soft tissue surgery. January 2019 our team of Veterinarians grew again with addition of Dr Chené Stoffberg with her particular interest in more complicated medical cases and desire to expand into the avian area.
Reception and Waiting Room
This desk is where you will find the smiling face of one of our Receptionists on your arrival. This is where you will check-in for an appointment or to admit your pet for surgery.
If you would like to purchase any pet care products, please speak to one of the receptionists. They are very knowledgeable on all the products we stock, and we can even arrange most special orders. We stock a variety of intestinal de-worming, heart worming, flea and tick prevention. Our waiting room is where you will find a complete range of Montego, Vets Choice, Hills Science and Prescription Diet foods, dental care, shampoos, collars, harnesses, lead ropes and a range of other pet care accessories. We also have information available on nutrition, vaccinations, common parasites, pet insurance and pet behavior.
We have 2 consultation rooms. All the rooms are fully equipped to conduct a thorough clinical examination of your pet.
We have a brand-new high frequency X-ray machine. The quality of the images we are obtaining from this system are amazing, making diagnostics so much more accurate. The digital images can be manipulated after the X-ray is taken to ensure the correct exposures for examining both bone structures and soft tissues, so we are exposing our patients and staff to less radiation.
An advantage of the digital system we have is that all the X-ray images are saved on our hard drive. It also means that we don’t have to wait for “snail mail” when referring x-rays to specialists, we can send them a copy of the image within minutes. Also, we no longer have to worry about the use and disposal of chemicals in the developing process making it an eco-friendly alternative to the old film x-rays.
We also have in house ultrasound facilities available.
One of our most exciting in-house clinical pathology machines is our Idexx in-house blood biochemistry analyzer. This allows us to rapidly perform essential biochemical and electrolyte tests 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. So if your pet comes in sick over the weekend, we have answers in a few minutes instead of waiting until Monday afternoon for results from an external laboratory.
It has also streamlined pre-anaesthetic blood testing, we can draw as little as 1ml of blood when your pet is admitted for surgery and be assured that they do not have any hidden medical issues before we give them their anaesthetic.
We also perform urine and faecal analysis in this area and have a multi-purpose microscope for examining skin, blood and ear smears as well as tissue cells.
The theatre is the room in which we perform all our sterile surgical procedures such as sterilization procedures, lump removals and orthopaedic procedures. Animals are prepared for surgery in the treatment room and are moved into the surgery room once they have been clipped and prepared with antiseptic solutions and connected to a dedicated surgery anaesthetic machine. A nurse works with a vet through all procedures to monitor the animal closely while under anaesthetic and through to recovery
Hospital Wards – Dog & Cat
Our hospital has dedicated dog and cat wards for hospitalized and boarding patients. Hospitalized patients are fed depending on their dietary requirements and dogs that are well enough are taken outside for toilet breaks regularly throughout the day.
Our pharmacy is located behind the reception area and is where we store all our large and small animal prescription medications. These drugs can only be dispensed by a vet once they have seen your pet.
