Qualifying from the prestigious Pretoria, South Africa in 2016, Tanith joined our experienced Vet Team in 2019.

Initially practising at our UK Vet of the Year winning hospital in Kent, Tanith has broadened her client base and from 2020 can be found in our London Surgeries as well as still spending time every Thursday at our The Manor Vets in Kent.

From Tanith’s exciting time spent post qualifying in South Africa and her experience working at our busy hospital’s in London and Kent, Tanith is a highly proficient general practitioner who enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, diagnostics, eye surgery and soft tissue surgery.

Being an OV Practitioner means Tanith is readily available to give advice and issue passports/export certificates to pets wanting to travel.

Outside of the surgeries Tanith’s huge passion for small animal companions extends to her adorable rescue puppy Toto (who often tags along with her to work!). Tanith enjoys returning home to South Africa to see family and also travelling the UK visiting cities and taking in our heritage.
