About Us

Providing trusted care for all animals in our community, big and small.

Our staff are well recognised within the Wairarapa region as leaders in the veterinary field, and as active members and supporters of our local communities. Today, more than ever, local knowledge and experience has an immense value in an impersonal world. In fact, we like to think of our business as a matter of trust – between you, us and your animals.

a truly mixed practice clinic

As a truly mixed practice we care for companion animals, equine and service farms with sheep, beef, dairy, and deer focusses. This huge amount of variety allows our team to develop interesting and diverse careers.

Our production animal vets and rural technicians are hugely experienced and up to date with the latest technology and procedures. As a team, we are very focused on preventative medicine and consultancy services and enjoy working with a loyal and proactive client base.

There is a great depth of knowledge amongst our companion animal vets and an excellent team of nurses and support staff. Our case-loads include a wide range surgical and general medicine including orthopaedics and canine reproductive work.

Personal Development Opportunities 

We actively encourage and fund our staff to continue their education. As well as paid CPD opportunities, such as conferences and courses with external providers, we regularly hold in house training sessions and vet team meetings to keep our team up to date. These are great opportunities to share information and sit down for a meal and a few laughs.

Social Events and Staff Wellness 

At The Vet Clinic Wairarapa we work hard, and we play hard, with a very active social and wellness committee who ensure that there’s always sport and events to look forward to. We recognise veterinary medicine can be stressful at times and have wellness advocates within our leadership team committed to ensuring all staff have our full support.
