Companion Animal Services

Our team at The Vet Clinic Wairarapa are passionate animal lovers who are here to help you and your pet. They are highly trained and dedicated to making sure that your pets receive excellent care and compassion every time you walk in the door.

The Clinic

The retail area stocks a large variety of products for cats and dogs including premium foods, bedding, toys, treats and chews, cages, collar and leads, coats/jackets, grooming products, shampoos, and flea and worm treatments.

We have 2 large waiting areas so cats and dogs can be kept separate and 4 dedicated consultation rooms to help minimise waiting times.  The consultation rooms come in a variety of sizes to accommodate even the largest of patients or families.  One consultation room has an extra entry directly from the carpark – this can be used for particularly nervous or reactive patients so they don’t need to pass through the reception area first and also for euthanasias where the animal is being taken home again afterwards for burial. 


If our patients need to stay for further treatment or surgery we have separate dog and cat wards.  In the cat ward there are 18 cat cages – 3 of these being double size for any cats having a lengthy stay.  

The dog ward contains 21 cages which vary in size from cages suitable for small dogs right up to our 7 large walk in cages which can accommodate even giant breed dogs.  

Both the cat and dog ward have air conditioning to ensure your pet is kept completely comfortable no matter what the weather and the dog ward also has a secure outside run attached to allow dogs the freedom to exercise and toilet in comfort and safety.


The cat and dog wards lead directly into the hub of our clinic – the very spacious treatment room. This area contains 3 work stations for minor procedures, dentistry and preparation for sterile surgery.  There are also 2 sterile surgical suites which boast positive pressure ventilation to reduce the risk of contamination.

We also provide a separate isolation ward with 5 cages for infectious disease cases – this area also has an external entry to prevent potentially contagious patients from having to come into the communal parts of the building therefore reducing the risk to other pets.
