You guys, I REALLY want to emphasize this!!! If your parrot's feathers are too long. For the next 21 days you won't be able to look for him if he flies away. Keep your doors locked! Not closed, but locked so no one could accidentally enter trough the door. If you can't do that, please make sure your parrot stays in its cage. You are responsible for your parrot's safety! This goes for dogs and cats too

Vetcare Animal Clinic - opens its doors 10 March 2015! Dr Elke Schwellnus is here to look after your pets health needs.

Can you see the weekend yet?🐾

Have a good weekend because Monday will be back in 30 minutes 😆.


Dr Elke was very excited to see our very special Sssnake patients today. Bee the Sand Boa & Cleopatra the Carpet Python.

A few interesting facts on reptiles❗️❗️❗️

🐍Reptiles are cold blooded vertebrates(meaning they have a
back bone).
🦎They lay soft shelled eggs however , Boa constrictors give birth to live young.
🐢They have dry scaly skin.
🐍Some of the most common reptiles are snakes, lizards, turtles, tortoises and crocodiles.

❤️Quote of the day - If they breath, they live. If they live, they feel.
If they feel, they love. If they love, they are aware. If they are aware, they have a soul.

Very tame African Grey brought in. Pleasd give us a call if it is yours and confirm ring number 🐦

Stunning. Even donating R50 from 6 people can have a kitty spayed or neutered. Let’s do this people. Kitten season has already started. Many pregnant cats out there currently. Dr Elke❤️


Rene Beeby sponsored 2 spay/neuters and brought kitten food for the moms and kittens in foster care.

CAT Garden Route

Although focused on sterilisations, CAT Garden Route is in desperate need of donations for treatments, to enable us to assist with cases, such as the following:
Ginger was born on a farm in Langkloof, his family are humble farm workers, who love their Ginger boy to bits. Already sterilised by CAT Garden Route some time ago, his concerned family contacted Lisa Murray, as Ginger suddenly became lethargic and appeared in much pain.
Lisa Murray rushed through to the Langkloof Farm and then straight to Vetcare Animal Clinic - George. Ginger received emergency treatment by Dr Elke at Vetcare for a severely blocked bladder to save his life. After a full recovery, Ginger returned to his family. A happy ending in deed. Please consider a small donation toward worthy cases, such as this.
CAT Trust, FNB Acc No. 6261 567 0800, Branch George

Spikey and Gizmo came a far way for a weigh in....and some Show Bussiness. So adorable. These little critters can get overweight easily, regular weight check and correct diet/ exercise is the way to go.❤️ #exoticsmypassion Dr Elke

Music for the heart! Happy Monday! ❤️🐾

Pinky and the Vet

Pinky ( 8yr old Galah)came in for a pedi and wing clip. What a delight. He got some health advise but with all the talking we are not sure how much he heard. This chatty chap made Dr Elke’s day.

Mambo came to visit fora fledgling feather and nail trim. Giving some advise on feeding and transitioning to healthy pelleted ration for future. What a clever little fella. Nice meeting you Mambo. Dr Elke ❤️🦜

Cassie came in today, she is a 24 year old Timney Grey. This little one is on the correct pellet food, with fruits and enough sunlight per day! She is super friendly and was happy to lie on her back for feather, beak and nail trim. What a treat to have you as a patient Cassie! From a happy Dr Elke🐾❤️🐦🦜

Today we had the privilage to meet Little Augie, a female chinchilla who only weighs 480g. IT-support couldn't resist some cuddle time with her.

Fun facts : Chinchillas are very agile animals and can jump up to 5 feet in the air , their fur is considered the softest in the world : 30 times softer than human hair.

Critters like these are Dr. Elke's passion.We really hope she feels better soon. 🤗

A 9.1kg SWAN was brought to Dr Elke with a presenting complaint of paralysis in his legs. Dr Elke took x-rays and put the patient on a drip to treat his initial diagnosis-heavy metal toxicity.
After two days on a drip he showed great improvement and even had enough strength to chase Vetcare's resident bunny!! Today he will be heading back to his pond where he is most happy. The Vetcare staff have been most interested in this unusual patient and are all glad he has recovered well.

This big boy was found in Denneoord and really wants to go home. He has no microchip. Please phone VetCare on 044-873-3585 if this is your big boy 🐾🐾
He will be spending the night here if not collected by 17:30. Please share!

I think the piggy may be my favourite. Have a beautiful day VetCare Family! 🐾❤️
