Welcome to Karin Kruger

We'd like to extend a very warm welcome to Karin Kruger who has joined our hospital medical team.

Karin graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2006 and stayed on to complete an equine internship at the veterinary teaching hospital. After spending 8 months in equine private practice, Karin returned to the university where she worked as an equine anaesthetist while doing a Master’s degree in anaesthesia. 

In 2009 she moved to the USA, where she completed a 3 year residency in Equine Internal Medicine at the North Carolina State University and in 2012 became an ACVIM board certified diplomat. After her residency, Karin returned to South Africa where she practiced specialist referral medicine at the Witbos Veterinary Clinic and consulted for various practices and drug companies. 

In 2017, Karin and her family moved to Sweden where she practiced specialist medicine at the Specialist Equine Hospital in Stromsholm. Karin joined the Bell Equine medical team in September 2018.

Karin enjoys all aspects of equine medicine, but has a special interest in cardiology, critical care and optimising performance.

Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her husband and two young sons, her dog and riding her horse.
