A small introduction

About Us

Positioned on one of the main roads running through the suburbs of Observatory, Cyrildene, Bezuidenhout Valley and Bruma Lake, the Bruma Lake Veterinary Clinic has become part of the community for all pet owners living in this area of Johannesburg over the years.

Although we focus on the care of dogs and cats in particular, all companion animals are welcome at our practice.

We aim to get to know pets and their owners well so we can share a lifetime of care for these wonderful creatures that enrich our lives so much.

Our Approach

We strongly believe that pets are part of the family and should be treated as such. We approach each pet we see as an individual case.

We try to make a proper diagnosis before commencing treatment, ensuring that each patient receives targeted and specific treatment. We realise that veterinary care may be costly at times and therefore we try our best to discuss all treatment options with you before proceeding with treatment.

Hospital Profile

We are a community and family orientated veterinary practice with a view to providing the best veterinary medicine, products and services to our clients and patients, with a deep sense of care and compassion.

We aim to assist you to provide the best health and wellness care for your ‘extended’ family, and to strengthen the bond between you and your pets.
