Hannes Strydom, our new vet at Southbourne Veterinary Surgery, hails from South Africa, and was, in his previous professional life, a police veterinarian, specialising in working/service dogs and horses. Having taken a pension from the Police Force after 26 years, he was relishing taking on new challenges in the veterinary field, when he was approached by Vaughn Stoman, the owner of Springbok Veterinary Group, to come to the UK and manage the 3rd of his veterinary practices, which had just opened in Southbourne.

In addition to being a general practice vet, Hannes has a post graduate Honours in Nutrition and Infectious Diseases and a Masters Degree in Veterinary Ethology (Behaviour) . He and his wife, Annette, live in the flat over the surgery, so are near at hand in case of an Out Of Hours Emergency, and are enjoying exploring this lovely part of the world.
