On a large property with ponies and springbok grazing on Kikuyu pasture among various other farmyard animals, we’ve retained the countryside charm of Constantia in an environment conducive to wellness and healing. Our reception has been designed with the atmosphere of a comfortable home, allowing both you and your pets to receive care in a relaxed and stress-free environment that doesn’t feel foreign or all that different from other enjoyable new spaces to explore. Consultations can be carried out where your pet feels most at ease, sometimes on the couch and sometimes in the spacious garden – except for cats, of course!
Dr Hamish Currie started the Village Animal Clinic in Constantia Village in 1987, and a few years later moved to the current premises which was renamed the Alphen Veterinary Hospital. Here, Dr Currie would be joined by Dr Rosemary Dallas – another well-known personality in the Constantia community – in 2006. In the years since they’ve worked together developing the practice’s ethos of veterinary care, they have been joined by Drs Trishantha Govender, Heidi Kuhn and Lorna Whittemore, each contributing in their own unique ways. At Alphen Veterinary Hospital, our staff is comprised of dedicated individuals who’ve made it their mission to offer clinical excellence with compassion and build long-term relationships with clients.
