In a tranquil location surrounded by the sea, farmland and coastal bush, lies Wild Coast Vet founded by Drs Roger Davies and Michaela Randall in January 2017.
“We set up our home base in a renovated dairy parlour at Chintsa West, which belonged to local farmer Trevor Taylor,” said Davies.
“The location is absolutely stunning. We are surrounded by ocean, thick coastal bush, dams and open veld. We are truly blessed to be able to practise veterinary science in this beautiful part of the world.”
In addition to the normal clinic set-up, where pets are brought in by their owners for routine or emergency procedures, Wild Coast Vet offers a home visit service. “At the same time as setting up the clinic we started the home-visit service to compliment our clinic work,” Davies said.
Pets can be collected from home for operations or medical treatments. They have their procedure done at the clinic and can then be delivered back home.
“We are passionate about animal welfare. Our mobile veterinary service allows pets to be treated in the comfort of their home environment, and takes some of the stress away for pet owners,” said Davies.
“We find that our patients respond really well to the tranquility of the location and the stress-free nature of the home-visit service.”
Wild Coast Veterinary Clinic employs three full-time vets and four animal nursing-support staff. In addition to small animals, they carry out large animal and game capture work.
Routine veterinary services are offered from the fully equipped Chintsa West Clinic from Monday to Friday between 7.30am and 5pm, while the home-visit service operates from Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm.
An after hours emergency service is also available.
