YOUR PETS ARE OUR FAMILY

Each of our staff have pets of their own, whom they love and cherish. They know what it’s like to bring their pets to the vet, to have them sterilised, or to have them visit a grooming parlour for the first time. It is our mission to make your pet feel at home with us to treat them as our own.

Our VETERINARY Team

Dr Brett Lourens

Dr Brett Lourens

Dr Brett graduated from Onderstepoort in 1993 with a BVSc degree. He initially practiced in Northern Kwa-Zulu Natal and his work included small animals, large farm animals as well as game animals. He relocated to Somerset West and in 2003 opened Pet Savers.

 

Brett’s veterinary philosophy is to provide his patients with the best possible treatment and will have no hesitation to refer if he believes they require specialist treatment. Brett has loved animals from a very early age. His experience assisting at veterinary clinics since his teenage years convinced him to become a veterinarian.

 

He has his “human” family Ashley and Darrian assisting him with their expertise, making Pet Savers truly a family business. He is a father to a kitty child too, a magnificent Norwegian cat named Rocky and grandfather to Foxy a ultra-friendly rescue doggie.

Dr Gail grew up on a farm riding horses before she could walk. This fostered her love for animals and inspired her to make the decision to become a veterinarian.
