Dr Fida Young
BVSc, Hons (Small Animal Surgery)
As a young girl on her Grandpa’s farm, Dr Fida, dreamed of wearing the theater gear with scalpel in her hand and the beam of the light illuminating her patient. In 2007 Dr Fida was a step closer qualifying as a Veterinarian from Ondersterpoort.
She has experienced all fields of veterinary science as she began working with Equine’s at a practice in Kyalami , under Dr Mike Ross, before heading to Australia for almost 5 years. In Australia, Dr Fida, worked predominantly with Equine’s as well as small and production animals. In 2013 she returned to South Africa and started her own practice in Mooinooi working with a wide range of animals including small and production animals and wildlife. Her practice has expanded to a three man practice and is now situated in Buffelspark shopping center, Buffelspoort. Dr Fida has a drive to improving herself and her skills which lead her to complete her post graduate studies in Small Animal Surgery completing her Honors mid-2018. Not only does she have a love for veterinary science but for her daughters, camping, farming and fishing.
Dr Henri Olckers
Dr Henri undertook his studies at University of Pretoria main campus and then Onderstepoort. He qualified in 2012 and began practicing in Pretoria City Centre working with predominantly small animals and wildlife. Looking for more adventure and to escape City Life, Dr Henri joined the Pet Passion team in 2015. Dr Henri has a strong interest in wildlife and is very competent in this field as well as production and small animals. Dr Henri loves spending his spare time with friends and family and only needs half a chance to get away to the Kruger National Park.
His big heart and caring nature makes him one of the most wonderful Veterinarians.
