Specialist Veterinarians as part of our Team
To ensure that your pet always receives the best diagnostic and treatment protocols, we have Dr Joanne Mclean a European and South African board-certified Specialist Physician and Dr Kristina Lutz (Honours degree in Surgery) as part of our team.
One of the highest goals at Bakenkop Animal Clinic is to keep our patients as pain free as possible.
On- site Laboratory
Our on-site laboratory provides speedy and accurate results for implementation of the most efficient and effective diagnosis and treatment protocols. We are able to do full blood counts, electrolytes as well as a full lab report within 30 minutes of admittance.
The amount of fluids given to a patient can be potentially life threatening. We have invested in the best quality infusion pumps to ensure that every patient receives the correct amount of fluids always.
Our patients are so important to us, that we custom build three wards
1. A Dog ward for all our canine patients with underfloor heating and an air conditioner.
2. A Cat ward away from the dog ward to minimise stress in our feline patients.
3. An Isolation ward where every precaution possible is taken to prevent contamination and infection of the rest of the hospital and our other patients. All the patients with contagious diseases will be examined in this special ward, weighed daily and treated accordingly. Protective clothing and boots are worn at all times in this ward.

1. Vaccination status.

Puppy & Kitten Healthcare Packages
We offer vaccination and sterilisation packages to all our young patients at a reduced rate.
Senior Wellness Screens
For all our geriatric patients we offer a Senior Wellness Comprehensive Screen. Dogs and Cats are considered senior after 7 years of age. As our pets age, they encounter many of the same medical conditions that we as humans encounter, e.g. arthritis, diabetes, organ failure, etc. Prevention is always better than cure. We want to help your beloved pet to live a happy, healthy life for as long as possible. Book you’re pet now. Senior wellness screening
