Companion Animal Surgeon

Dr Japie Venter, BVSc MBA MMedVet (Surgery) MRCVS MSc (Agric), is Veterinary Sciences Senior Lecturer into Companion Animal Surgery.

Specialises in small-animal surgery at James Cook University, he is a master of his craft.

Not only has he developed a new technique for preventative hip dysplasia surgery, but he is also embarking on small-animal surgeries that have rarely been done before. This makes him one of the few small-animal surgeons in the world with these credentials.
