Does your pet appear to be unwell? Make an appointment to see our friendly animal healthcare professionals. We have experience with cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs - you name it, we can work with them.
Microchipping is a simple lifelong way to identify pets and link them to their owner, and results in a speedy return of lost, stolen or injured animals. All dogs registered in NZ for the first time (except farm dogs used for stock control) must be microchipped.
We offer routine elective procedures such as a spey or neutering operation, and dental work. We have full surgical facilities for emergency and more complex procedures
Regular vaccination is required for all cats and dogs to ensure they remain free from a number of contagious diseases.
