Dr Henriette Van der Westhaizen

Veterinarian - BVSc

Henriette has always had a love and passion for animals, and in 2005 she graduated as a vet at Onderstepoort, South Africa.  She first worked at a small animal practice in Cape Town, and later in Pretoria.  In 2009 Henriette, her husband, 2 cats and miniature Schnauzer Stoffel immigrated to Australia, and began a new chapter in tropical Cairns.  After a few years they moved to the limestone coast of South Australia, and finally ended up in Adelaide at the beginning of this year.  


Henriette’s greatest strength is her compassion and care of her patients, and after 13years she still loves all the varied aspects of being a small animal vet. 

Henriette works part-time, and the rest of the time she spends with her young family, exploring parks and beaches, riding bikes, renovating/upcycling things for her home and dreaming up more travel plans.
