Our clinic in Richmond, was purpose built in 1993 and is located in an easy to find spot on the corner of King Street and the main road heading south out of Richmond, Gladstone Road.

We pride ourselves in being very well equipped with some very modern equipment to enable the high standard of work required to meet the tough standards of “Best Practice”.

New Zealand Veterinary Association (NZVA) “BEST PRACTICE” .. “Assurance of veterinary standard of care & responsibility”

NZVATo qualify for NZVA “Best Practice” is no small task. A practice has to meet very rigorous standards in not only animal care, surgery and medicine, but standards of public health (OSH), building and veterinary equipment maintenance, and the legal requirements of drug prescription (ACVM Act), as examples. As a result The Vet Centre, is the only practice in the Tasman area of Nelson to have achieved these standards.

We are a team of dedicated veterinarians and nurses providing a broad medical and surgical service to all companion animals and production animals. We are based at The Vet Centre in a purpose built facility, easily located and equipped with modern equipment to provide a broad range of diagnostic, medical, advisory and surgical services.
