About us – Vetspecs:

Vetspecs is the South Island's only Small Animal Surgical Specialist Veterinary Centre. Formed in 1999, Vetspecs was a stand-alone service until March 2008 whereupon we joined forces with the Afterhours Clinic; a first and only in the South Island, aimed at providing a genuine 24 hour care facility. We provide advanced specialist skills, expertise and equipment enabling us to give the best possible care and choice for our clients and their pets. Our ethos is one of true compassion from a supportive team that really cares.
