What hasn't changed?


There will be no compromise on the level of Best Practice Hospital Care your pet receives.

Our usual surgical, diagnostics and lab services are all available.

BESTPRACTICE accredited veterinary clinics and hospitals offer animal owners the best possible standard of veterinary care at all times.

The New Zealand Veterinary Association's BESTPRACTICE accreditation programme is New Zealand's only quality accreditation programme that ensures the highest standard of service and professionalism for veterinary clinics and hospitals in New Zealand.

Kaiapoi and Woodend branches


As we are required to centralise our services, these branches are now closed over the lockdown period, and all your veterinary care will be at the Rangiora clinic, where the staff you will be familiar with are based.

If you call the normal Kaiapoi or Woodend clinic number, you will automatically be diverted to the team in Rangiora.
We’re working towards offering a medication delivery service to Kaiapoi and Woodend clients to avoid you having to travel. We will keep you posted on this.
