Welcome toWhangaparaoa Veterinary Centre

Due to the covid 19 level 4 Pandemic lockdown, we are not providing any routine preventive work. Unwell or injured animals will still be seen. Please ring us before you come. Once you arrive for your appointment stay in your car and ring to notify us you have arrived: a staff member in full protective clothing will come out to the car to collect the patient: have cats and small dogs in a carrier and larger dogs on a lead in the back of the car. Please respect the 2m social distancing from our staff. The Vet will communicate by phone with you and we will return the patient back to the car. Payment has to be made over the phone by card.

Please ring us to order repeat prescriptions or to order prescription food, you can pay on the phone by card and we will do a contactless delivery at your house later in the day.

If you are unwell or have travelled in the last 2 weeks or you are in self isolation, let someone else bring the patient or organise a pick up of the patient with our Clinic van.

Our team works in 2 smaller groups that do not get in contact with each other, please be understanding to them, they are working very hard to still see to the needs of our patients.

Whangaparaoa Veterinary Centre has been serving pets and pet owners in the Whangaparaoa region for more than thirty years, providing compassionate and knowledgable animal health care. Among our many friends and neighbours, our clinic has a reputation for excellence in veterinary care delivered by caring and friendly staff.

Our BESTPRACTICE accreditation is testament to our ongoing commitment in providing the highest level of service and care to our clients and patients. 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. BESTPRACTICE is currently a voluntary programme so you know when you choose an accredited clinic, your veterinarians stand by their excellence, because they volunteer to undergo an extensive audit every two years.
