About Us

Drs David Huchzermeyer and Philippa Colly started practising in Lydenburg in 1986 and jointly formed Sterkspruit Veterinary Clinic in 1994. The clinic derives its name from the Sterkspruit River which supplies the drinking water to Lydenburg and represents a life line to the residents of our town. In the same way Sterkspruit Veterinary Clinic provides an essential service to the animals of the town and its surroundings.

'What a week it has been with our darling Rosie Posie being bitten by a Mozambique Spitting Cobra on
Sunday. We rushed her to the vet at Sterkspruit Veterinary Clinic. After making
a difficult decision to leave her there and return the children to school after
half term, she made a remarkable recovery. We finally have her home with her
brother Granger. A few more tests and lots of meds to go, so happy to have her
home. Thank you to all the staff at the clinic for their tireless support. Tom
and I are extremely grateful.' – Nikki Lewin 

'Ons wil net weer baie dankie se vir julle hulp met die katjie wat Saterdag raak gery is....daar is nie baie veeartse wat sal doen wat julle gedoen het nie....baie dankie!' - Sonja vd Heever
