Speaker's Biography


Dr Izak Venter

Dr Izak Venter graduated as a veterinarian from the Onderstepoort Veterinary Faculty, Pretoria University (South Africa). Having a special interest in ophthalmology, Dr Venter obtained his M.Med.Vet (Ophth) degree and qualified as a Veterinary Specialist Practitioner (Ophthalmology) in South Africa. In 1996, he co-founded the Johannesburg and Cape Animal Eye Hospitals, a referral veterinary practice dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of animal eye disease. Whilst dogs, cats and horses comprise the majority of his patients, Dr Venter has great expertise in treating several other species including, birds, cheetahs, elephants, lions, rhinos, snakes, and tigers.

Dr Venter lectures at the Onderstepoort Veterinary Faculty, Pretoria University, and trains undergraduate and postgraduate veterinary students. Dr Venter and his colleagues have been coming to Wanchai Animal Hospital two to three times a year for the last fifteen years. When Dr Venter is not seeing eye cases, he is busy playing the guitar or cooking up a storm in the kitchen!
