About our Pet Wellness

WAHG Pet Wellness opened its doors in November 2021 at the, then new Drakenstein Sentrum in Paarl.  This branch offers consultation (on appointment basis) as well as minor surgical procedures for your family pet(s) and has a lovely, modern Vetshop in front as well, with a wide variety of good quality foods, treats and other merchandise for your family pet(s).

Should your pet require more intensive treatment than is offered at this branch, this can be done at our next closest branch, Boulevard Animal Hospital, 72 Berg River Boulevard, Paarl.
