Janina qualified as a veterinarian in 2003 from the University of Munich in Germany. Following graduation, she moved to South Africa where she combined working in a large equine hospital near Johannesburg with research work for her Dr. med. vet. degree (PhD equivalent), in which she graduated in 2008 with honours and for which she was awarded the title Dr. med. vet..
Following on from this, she was given the opportunity to present at various large international equine veterinary conferences in the UK and the USA. She also completed postgraduate courses in Equine Internal Medicine, Equine Ophthalmology and Equine Diagnostic Imaging at the University of Pretoria in South Africa and graduated from there with a BVSc (Hons) postgraduate qualifications in 2010. Janina was also involved with the National Horse Racing Authority of South Africa and worked there as a race course veterinarian.
Having worked as a locum for Ardene House Veterinary Practice over the summer of 2010, she joined us on a permanent basis in February 2011. In 2015, Janina was awarded an RCVS Advanced Practitioner for Equine Medicine by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in the UK. Since 2012 Janina is also a FEI official and treatment veterinarian for eventing. Her keen interest in competing at dressage had to be paused to allow her to support her young daughter riding a pony and joining various pony club activities.
Janina enjoys all aspects of equine medicine, in particular gastro-intestinal diseases, neonatology and ophthalmology, and lameness investigations.
