Dr. Anita Schwan

BVSc, BSc(Hons), Cert(IAVH)

 

The animal clinic was founded in 2004 by Dr. Schwan on an agricultural smallholding near Pretoria North

in a peaceful environment, beautiful gardens and ample open space for the pets to move around.  

After completing her studies in wildlife management and veterinary science at the University of Pretoria

in 2000 and working with many veterinarians over the years, Dr. Schwan realised that conventional

veterinary science often has no answer to cure certain diseases like a  chronically  itchy  skin or epilepsy.

Having used homoeopathy successfully on herself and family she had the opportunity to obtain training

from teachers from the UK and SA and qualify as a veterinary homeopath with a certificate from the

International Association for Veterinary Homeopathy (IAVH). She also is the South African Representative

of the IAVH.

Dr. Schwan received training in  2009 in veterinary acupuncture and is currently enrolled in an

acupuncture course on horses. She is a member of the World Association of Traditional Chinese

Veterinary Medicine (WATCVM).

At Heatherdale Veterinary  clinic all the staff is highly passionate about animals and their well-being.

The relaxed and friendly atmosphere is our trademark.

We approach treatments holistically where alternative treatments are prescribed alone or integrative

with conventional  veterinary surgery.

Homeopathy is a safe and scientific treatment for animals for all sorts of ailments. Many patients do also

benefit from acupuncture in cases of back pain or lameness caused by cruciate ligament problems  etc.

We also do conventional surgery and therapy as required.

Homeopathy is a holistic therapeutic medical science based on the teachings of Samuel Hahnemann,

a German born physician and founder of homeopathy. Hahnemann discovered some 200 years ago that

if a substance causes certain symptoms in a healthy individual, that same substance can be used to cure

similar symptoms in a sick one. For example the homeopathic remedy Apis mellifica is made from the

honey bee. When an inquisitive puppy is stung by a bee or a spider we see urticaria, immediate swelling

of the skin, becoming red and, painful and oedematous. The remedy Apis given orally decreases the

swelling so fast and in a more spectacular way than with a cortisone injection or an antihistamine.
