Kayla du Toit Biography

kayla du toit

I grew up with animals and have loved them since I can remember.

My dream to work with animals for the rest of my life started at the age of 14.

That’s when I started horse riding knew that animals would make better patients than most humans.

At the time, I didn’t know that animal physiotherapy was a career option and thought that vet or vet nurse would be the only options.

It was only in my matric year that I came across an article in the HQ magazine about Equine Librium College, that I knew this was my calling! I enjoyed working with both horses and dogs but in my 3rd year I started leaning a bit more towards the dogs and other small animals.

I have been working in the veterinary physiotherapy field for 3 years and I’m still loving every single day that I get to help my patients to recover from injuries, surgeries or every day aches and pains.

This really is such a rewarding job. I have 2 Cocker Spaniels, Hazel and Vika, with whom I do agility. They are absolutely my heart dogs and I learn so much from them each day.
