The Team

We have a dedicated team of people to care for your pets at the Salt Rock Veterinary Clinic:

Shabana Wahab:  
Shabana is a real Umhlali local, and she and her husband both work in Salt Rock. Shabana is kept busy looking after their two small children, her big dog and her white cat 'Snowy'. She has been working on reception at the Salt Rock Veterinary Clinic since 2008.
Helen Roelofse:  
Helen has been a member our team since the end of 2012. She was born in Zimbabwe, and first settled on the North Coast with her family over a decade ago. Helen has two children, one who attends a local highschool, and the other is busy with his studies. Helen loves her little Yorkshire Terrier, Rocco, who is a real character.
Joyce Ngisu:  
Joyce has been in the dog grooming industry since 2004. She is a marvel to watch grooming: trimming eyebrows and moustaches, and between toes and nails with remarkable accuracy. Joyce knows her regular customers like the back of her hand now, and has an amazingly gentle touch with all animals. Joyce has two teenage daughters, and lives locally in Shakashead. Joyce has one small dog called Max.
Musa Mbuyazi:  
Musa is the newest member of the team at Salt Rock Veterinary Clinic, joining us mid 2017. Originally from Richards Bay, he still heads up the coast for his holidays. Musa is always ready to help with anything that needs attending to. He has a teenage daughter, and their family pets are two large dogs.
Handrey Zondi:  
Handrey hails from Pietermaritzburg. He has been working with animals for many years now, and joined the Salt Rock team in 2013. Handrey helps Joyce with grooming, assists Roxy in the clinic and will happily carry a heavy bag of food for you. Handrey's favourite breed of dogs is Jack Russells.

Dr Roxanne Buckle:  
Roxanne joined the team at the beginning of December 2020 as the new practice owner.
Roxanne grew up in KZN, but has been working at a busy clinic in Johannesburg since graduating from Onderstepoort.
