Society Seminar

The Donkey & Mule Society of NZ (Inc.)

Donkey Nutrition and Related Issues

Sunday 9 September 10 am to 2 pm

Venue: 2113 Kimbolton Road, Kiwitea, near Feilding

Anna van Bergen, Equine Vet, Totally Vets, Feilding
Anna has had a wide and varied experience with equines, including donkeys, in the Netherlands, Belgium, England and Australia.

She will talk about nutrition and related issues like laminitis. Anna will also show us some pictures of how donkeys are usually kept in the Netherlands / Europe. Anna has also had experience with orphan donkey foals.

Anna is dedicated to helping owners keep their donkeys healthy and happy and would therefore love to share some of her insights and experiences with you.
She welcomes your questions.

Anna graduated at Utrecht University in the Netherlands with a Master’s degree in equine medicine. Utrecht University works in close relation to the Dutch Donkey Sanctuary, which gave her the opportunity to gain some experience with donkeys during her studies. After graduating Anna worked as an equine vet at Dierenkliniek Benschop-Oudewater. In addition to this Anna had the privilege to work for other clinics in the Netherlands, Belgium and England.
In 2017 Anna moved to Australia, but after a year decided to take a job at Totally Vets here in New Zealand.
