Consultations OLD

We offer consultations of 15 minutes or longer if required, with one of our team of experienced veterinarians. Between our practices, our vets have a combined total of 209 years of experience!

By having a multi vet practice we are able to offer consultations throughout the whole day at our Paremata and Tawa clinics, and at specified times at our Plimmerton, Titahi Bay and Whitby clinics.

We want you, and your pets to be as comfortable as possible when you come to visit us. By having multiple vets we can pretty much keep to appointment times minimising the stress to your pet, and yourself . Sometimes we do get interrupted, or can run behind because as well as seeing routine problems, we also deal with accidents and emergencies.

We like to do a thorough examination to consider your whole pet. Unfortunately our pets can not tell us how they feel, so it is always best to come and see us if you think your pet is suffering in any way. Because your pets cant tell us how they feel either, sometimes further diagnostics are needed (blood tests, xrays etc) to get to the root cause of the problem.


Because we are a BESTPRACTICE accredited clinic we have an amazing team of qualified veterinary nurses. They are trained and able to perform vet nurse consultations that involve technical aspects of veterinary medicine and surgery. This includes performing post-operative checks on routine surgery and dentistry, performing dental assessments, giving routine injections and discussing nutritional requirements, If your pet needs more than what the vet nurse is qualified to carry out we will involve a veterinarian.
