Mirko has always had a love for animals of all shapes and sizes; having spent time as a wildlife tracker and game ranger in South Africa and Namibia. Mirko initially planned on becoming a child psychologist but fortunately after completing his psychology degree, saw the light and realized that his true calling was to be a veterinarian and thus he completed a bachelor of science and then the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. While Mirko loves all animals, he has a special affinity for dogs on either end of the spectrum (soft natured Cavaliers or boisterous boxers and Labradors).
Outside of the veterinary profession, Mirko enjoys making the most of his time off whether it be napping at the beach, camping or going to the pub with mates. Mirko is also an avid fan of rugby union (being a staunch Springbok fan) and mixed martial arts. He loves a chat and will happily get to know you in the consult, so come say hi!
