Monika opens doors to clinic

AN open day at Monika Baffy's property was held on Sunday to inform residents about a unique new veterinary service she is offering.

Dr Baffy bought her 32 hectare property at Freestone earlier this year to establish a veterinary practice in a natural outdoor environment.

“After looking for a farm for a year and a half I new this was the perfect property as soon as it came on the market. I was looking for an area which was off the highway with stables already in place,” Dr Baffy said.

After purchasing the property, Dr Baffy busily began renovating the stables and yards and even though she has further plans for extensions, the property is now fully operational.

After graduating in 1992 in Hannover, Germany Dr Baffy worked in busy equine referral hospitals in Germany and Ireland before moving to Australia in 1998 where she completed her masters in equine reproduction which was a joint initiative between universities in Hannover, Germany and Victoria, Australia.

Many may already know Dr Baffy as she practiced at a local veterinary clinic for seven months before the purchase of her property.

“With a strong client base in the area I saw the need for a practice in a natural environment as many horses require stabilisation in conjunction with treatment, and I can now cater for up to 40 horses at a time,” she said.

“I have had extensive experience within equestrian sports and the thoroughbred racing industry, both as an active rider and vet.”
