Where we come from... and where we're going

While working in the UK and gaining some valuable experience, Drs. Louis Hoek and Alf Lategan often dreamed of opening up their own practice in South Africa. The dream took shape and in 2009 they, along with their veterinarian wives, Drs Barbara Hoek and Magdalena Lategan, decided it was time to return home. Jeffrey’s Bay and the surrounding areas offered the perfect place to settle, and they became the proud owners of an existing mixed-animal practice in nearby Kareedouw, as well as a brand-new practice in Jeffrey’s Bay.

The practices have been blessed above measure and today we are thankful to consist of a brilliant team who can offer high-quality, comprehensive services to farmers and pet owners across the country.
