Who is Peter Rogers?

With over 30 year's experience, Dr Peter Stewart Rogers is considered one of the most experienced wildlife veterinarians in the world. He specializes in the capture and veterinary care of some of South Africa's most endangered species, including the southern white rhinoceros, black rhinoceros, African elephant, cheetah, African wild dog, African Lion, Temminck's ground pangolin and many other species.

After qualifying at the Onderstepoort Veterinary Faculty in 1984, Peter spent his first three years working in private practices in Pretoria, Durban and Cape Town, building up experience in the veterinary care and treatment of companion animals, horses and livestock. In 1987 Peter was employed by the then Natal Parks Board - now Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife - where he built up vast experience in the capture and care of wildlife, specializing in the white rhino, black rhino, African elephant, Cape buffalo, nyala and the like.

Pangolin Protection

The pangolin is the planet's most trafficked animal. Invincible in the bush; these shy and endearing creatures are extremely vulnerable to humans. Once a pangolin is spotted, it can simply be picked up and carried away into the sinister world of wildlife trafficking.

Provet Wildlife Services
& Animal Hospital

Dr Peter Rodgers and his team Provet Wildlife Services have been dedicated to the health and safety of our treasured wildlife in the greater Hoedspruit area for over 20 years.

Dr Rogers registered his private practice in 1995 and practiced privately in his free time, while he was employed by the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre. He fully pursued the next thrilling step in his illustrious career, in 2001, from his small practice in Kampersrus, mainly focusing on wildlife but, also attending to the many companion animals and livestock in the surrounding area. Soon the need for a larger and more accessible practice prompted Dr Rogers to move his practice to Maroela Park in the town of Hoedspruit in 2003.
