Tanya Viljoen

Dr Tanya ViljoenVeterinary Doctor

The best thing about being the veterinarian at epetstore is the fact that I can reach so many people. I have a passion for educating pet parents and uplifting the lives of as many animals as possible. This opportunity is a unique and limitless platform upon which I can change the world for the better.
I aim to keep pushing myself, in every aspect of my life but my greatest goal is to be the best vet I can be. Life is not about “finding yourself”, it’s about CREATING yourself!
I am owned by 2 fabulous rescue kitties named Jasper and Josh, and am a soon-to-be puppy-parent!

My passion for what I do comes from my love for animals while I was growing up. I have the pleasure of doing some ePETstore deliveries to customers in our area. If we are able to do a delivery on the same day, we do. Seeing the gratitude and surprise on our customer’s faces makes my day! It’s not only our human customers that are happy, many of the dogs at my regular delivery addresses now recognise the ePETstore packaging and get super-excited to see it!

Craziest situation i’ve ever been in… I used to be really scared of dogs in my early stages of childhood.

My love for dogs developed tremendously ever since.
