Joané van Oudtshoorn

Joané van Oudtshoorn graduated from Equine-Librium College in 2021 after completing the 4 year course in Veterinary Physiotherapy. She couldn’t wait to move to the beautiful Somerset West and start her career.

Animals have always been a major part of Joané’s life, as she grew up on a farm and knew that she would one day pursue a career in the veterinary rehabilitation field. She enjoys working with an array of different animals, with a special interest in rehabilitation and conditioning of canine and equine athletes.

Joané’s hope is to positively impact the lives of each and every animal to help them reach their full potential!

Bianca Duthie

Growing up on a Karoo farm, Bianca developed a deep-rooted love for animals and their well-being. This passion led her to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Physiotherapy from Equine-Librium College, graduating in 2023. Bianca is eager to embark on a meaningful career as a veterinary physiotherapist.

Bianca takes a special interest in the rehabilitation, conditioning and performance of canine athletes and is particularly fascinated by the interplay between biomechanics, conditioning, and injury prevention. She enjoys participating in obedience, mantrailing, and detection sports with her dog, Summit.

Beyond her professional pursuits, Bianca enjoys exploring the outdoors. Hiking, running, camping, and horse-riding are among her favorite activities. Although her studies have taken priority in recent years, she actively competed in endurance and eventing.
