Esther Van Herwaarden |DVM (dist.)

April 1, 2013

Esther graduated with great distinction from Ghent University in 2014, main subject horses. She has a special interest in equine podiatry and lameness work ups and really enjoys doing anaesthesia and looking after the patients in the hospital.

She grew up surrounded by animals and used to do a lot of competitive showjumping. After her graduation, she started travelling and saw practice at several equine hospitals on her way. This way, she got to know MVS and she had such a good experience here that she decided to apply for the equine internship. Outside of work, she enjoys running and is trying to see as much of New Zealand as possible.

Esther left MVS in March 2017 to travel and complete volunteer work in Asia.
