Meet Us

On the 1st of December 2014, the Village MedVet Centre officially opened for business!
​The building was originally the old Southbroom Supermarket, but it underwent an extensive makeover that includes a modern veterinary hospital and doctors’ rooms.
The Southbroom Veterinary Hospital opened its doors to all furry, feathered, scaled and loved pets, led by Dr. Lezelle Floyd, a qualified veterinary surgeon since 2003. In reception we have Veronique Shaul, Anneri Willemse and Venessa Thwaites.
The hospital boasts a modern surgical centre, dental equipment, as well as radiology and ultrasound capabilities, laboratory and visiting area. Dr. Floyd is also available for house calls if needed.
Not needing medical attention? Visit our vet shop for all your pet’s nutritional, playful, bedding and grooming needs.
Needing a doctor for yourself or family? Dr. Stephen Stewart also moved into the newly renovated building from his corner office. Suzi and Willyne will greet you at reception. His telephone number is 039 316 8046
