Passionate Vets caring for your pets.

Our mission is to provide exceptional veterinary surgical and medical care using modern equipment and knowledgeable, engaging staff. This allows us to provide quality and professional veterinary medicine and surgery for your pet in a warm and friendly environment.

Each of our veterinarians practices medicine and surgery, providing both routine and advanced care expected from a leading veterinary clinic. Our veterinarians offer individual wellness and geriatric vaccination protocols with an approach tailored to each patient’s unique history, including age, lifestyle, and location. While each patient may have a primary veterinarian, we operate as a team to provide comprehensive and in-depth medical care.

We are a warm friendly team where your pet is as important to us as it is to you.

Hello Total Vets family and friends! Please help me in welcoming our new Practice Manager, Karen Good! We are super excited to have her on board, so please pop in and say "Hello" when you are here!

"I was born in the UK where I have lived most of my life before moving to NZ at the end of January 2018. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for 27 years and have been qualified nearly 24 years. Over that time I have held many positions including Head Nurse, Nurse Manager, Lecturer and Group Area Manager. I have also worked in pharmaceuticals (both medical & veterinary, but mostly medical) where I worked my way up from sales to becoming a Market Access Manager, which involved me managing a team of 10 Key Account Managers, carrying out pre-launch duties such as budget impact models, clinical paper evaluations, training, and gaining formulary inclusions prior to launch. During that time I continued to locum for emergency after hours clinics in the UK - I couldn't leave it behind it seems. After 17 years in pharmaceuticals I followed my heart and passion and returned to Veterinary Practice full-time gaining a position in a referral centre as an ICU nurse and after hours emergency nurse. My first job in NZ was as a Veterinary Nurse Manager in a rural setting managing nurses across 4 clinics, however I missed the wider management aspect of my skill-set so when the Practice Manager role at Total Vets appeared it was too good an opportunity to miss. My number one fan here so far is 'Miss GG' the practice cat, who sensed very quickly that I am the mad cat lady!"
