About Us

Robberg Veterinary Clinic boasts a modern, full-service veterinary facility where we are dedicated to providing the best health care for animals in Plettenberg Bay and the surrounding area.

At Robberg Veterinary Clinic we feel that a modern veterinary hospital is more than simply advanced medical technology. We know that the best veterinary care starts with taking the time to get to know you and your pet and understanding your needs, as caregiver to your special companion.

Our philosophy is simple: We want to build and help build, a relationship that lasts a lifetime. We will strive to make each visit to our hospital as pleasant as possible, for you and your pet.
