About Hout Bay Vet

Located in Hout Bay, Cape Town, our practice was initially a branch of Green Point Vet, and became a stand alone practice in the early 1990s. It’s a small animal practice, with four vets available for consultations, vaccinations, micro-chipping, general medical work-ups, x-rays, ultrasounds, dental treatment, soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery.

She’s an outdoors kind of girl – with cycling, hiking, and walking with her dogs and kids on the mountain at the top of the list.
