My name is Professor Janoš Butinar, and I am a veterinarian who made his choice for this profession at the age of five years. I have tried to do my best to become as good an animal doctor as possible throughout my life. At the age of 50 years, I decided to set up my own animal hospital, in Postojna, Slovenia. My goal was simple – to gather people with similar ideas, well educated, devoted to this inspiring profession, to work efficiently and openly for new achievements and the best ideas in veterinary medicine.
The doors of Animal Hospital Postojna are open to the best professionals who would like to work with us, regardless of nationality.
The vast majority of our income is invested in continuing personal development, internship and residency training, and new equipment. We believe in sharing knowledge and continuously organise lectures, practical courses and other educational events, where we meet with colleagues and help each other solve demanding problems.
Most importantly – I have committed myself to help animals with cancer and their owners by all possible means, compassionately and unselfishly. Many patients' owners themselves or their relatives and friends have experience with cancer and its devastating psychological effects – we strive to give them hope and optimism, supported by our professional knowledge. We try to do our best to make the companionship with their beloved pets longer and of good quality. And when the time comes to say goodbye, we stand by them during the painful farewell – just as if all these animals were of our own.
