I know many animal friends will read this when their human parents are not at home and will wonder why their human parents do not take them to Onderstepoort. Maybe their parents think they are not allowed to go to Onderstepoort or that it is too far or some other excuse. If this does not convince them, then they should come and talk to me and look at my shiny coat and I will, due to the temper of a Scottie – convince them with growl that will make a lion run away. I know we are not allowed to give “high fives” anymore and that we should touch with the elbows. I cannot do that because my elbow is too low, but I will stand on my hind feet and smile at you and say in my little head - “Onderstepoort of niks” (Onderstepoort or nothing), like in “Tuks of niks”. I need to go now, because there is an irritating English bulldog next door that needs his daily lesson on obedience from me. The Onderstepoort Veterinary Academic Hospital provides a unique and highly valued service to the greater veterinary and pet-owning community. It is also a world-class practical training facility for veterinary and veterinary nursing students studying at the University of Pretoria’s Faculty of Veterinary Science.
