fbpx Our organisation | Mission, Vision and Story | VetSouth

VetSouth was born out of the belief that being rural and far away shouldn’t compromise the quality of veterinary services that we are able to provide.

As progressive owners of complex businesses, Farmers deserve the best advice and services available. This shouldn’t be compromised by geography. And pet owners feel the same attachment to their pets as in big cities. Our services need to reflect this.

To make this a reality we have to recruit excellent people, from wherever they are. And so we have an eclectic mix of vets from across New Zealand and the world. They bring a superb and broad skill set to VetSouth. In addition, we believe in working with as many organisations as possible to maximise the breadth of services and offering that we can bring to our clients.

And we will continue to innovate- whether it be in developing tech services or novel cost effective dairy packages or broader companion animal services.

VetSouth brings you a quality of service and information that is recognised worldwide as being truly first class.
