Gerhard RetiefGerhard Retief - Branch Partner & Head Clinician
I qualified at Onderstepoorte (South Africa) in 1989 and, among other jobs, I worked as a state veterinarian of the former republic of Venda. I left my partnership at the Helderberg Veterinary Hospital in Somerset West and came to England in December 2000. I joined Medivet in July 2003 and became branch partner at Norwich Thorpe a year and a half later. I am married with two children and have a border terrier, 5 Cornish Rex cats and a rescue moggy.
