Services > Pets & Companion Animals
With nine full time veterinarians dedicated to our companion animal practice, this comprises a large and vital part of Vet Services Hawke's Bay. The bulk of our focus is on dogs and cats, but a variety of pets, be they furred, feathered or finned are catered for.
A team of qualified, experienced veterinary nurses manage the day to day running of our clinics, taking care of patients throughout their stay with us.
All clinics are fully equipped to handle most surgical and medical cases, with the option of specialist referral where required. Vet Services has a strong emphasis on continuing education with our vets regularly attending veterinary conferences both in New Zealand and abroad.
In Waipukurau, Napier a professional dog groomer is available by appointment.
