Veterinary surgeon Dr Hilldidge Beer opened her first veterinary clinic under the EberVet name in Somerset West in 1991. Her belief that nutrition is the foundation of good pet health led to the launch in 2005 of her first Vetshop. She has 7 Vetshops in the Helderberg and Overberg including Stellenbosch, Somerset West, Gordon's Bay, Caledon, Hermanus and Onrus.
In 2006 Dr Beer formed EberVet Community Veterinary Care (CVC), offering sponsored veterinary services to underprivileged communities in towns across the Little and Great Karoo, Helderberg Basin and Overberg. Dr Beer travels thousands of kilometres each year to sterilise pets in these communities at no cost to their owners.
