Why Spay and Neuter?

Spaying or Neutering your pets may be the best thing you can ever do for them. Not only is it the best way to ensure that you are not forced to accommodate unwanted litters, the benefits far outweigh the risks.


Spaying your cats and dogs will avoid unnecessary pregnancies, as well as diseases and cancers that affect their reproductive organs and could possibly result in death. Spayed females don’t come into heat, so your dog won’t be leaving blood spots for you to clean. Your cat also won’t attract all the males in your neighbourhood to your yard.


Neutered males are less likely to be aggressive towards other dogs or humans. Neutering your dogs will also stop them from displaying undesirable sexual behaviour. Neutered dogs will also not leave your house smelling of urine due to marking behaviour.

Similarly, Neutering your cats makes them less aggressive and less likely to attract many different females to your house.

The health benefits associated with Spaying and Neutering will ensure that your pets stay happy and healthier for longer. Spaying and Neutering is also the best way to prevent the death of animals due to overpopulation and abandonment.

Farewell Dr Jaco Viljoen

It is with a sad heart that we said goodbye to Dr Viljoen in March 2019. Dr Viljoen decided to emigrate to the United Kingdom where he will work as a veterinarian.

Dr Viljoen was certainly an asset to the practice where he brought his own charm and expertise to ensure all our patients were properly treated and cared for.

Birnam Vet wishes him and his wife all the best.

Dr Liebmann is an old friend and colleague and our acquaintance dates back for a long time as with most of you who have known Dr Vic for a long time.

The story of Ginger


My name is Ginger, I am a stray young ginger tomcat.

I have taken the liberty of attaching two photos of myself, my benefactors tell me I am a good looking lad.  They can’t keep me because of all the other cats they have to look after.  Presently I am confined in their outbuildings, in a room at the back of the house.
