Working Dogs

OUR APPROACH

Keeping your four-legged workforce in prime condition.

They are a critical part of your daily operations and need to be in tip top condition for as long as possible.  That’s where we can help.  We’ve been working with working dogs for a long time and have whiled away the hours researching what makes for great health in these trusted animals.  With extensive knowledge and experience in preventative healthcare and a thorough understanding of nutritional requirements, we’ll keep your team as active as they need to be.

We often take referrals from other regions, who travel to VetSouth for orthopaedic surgery and have a huge number of top working dogs who have recovered from extensive broken bones, under the care of Dr Hugh Hasselman, a South Island legend for orthopaedic surgery.

 

VetSouth Worm Treatment Programme

We want to make treating working dogs simple and easy for you.  VetSouth's worming proramme is a cost effective, convenient way of keeping your dogs worm free.  Worming tablets are sent directly to your door every 3 months, enough to treat all your dogs for that period (based on their weight) and make sure you loyal workers stay worm free.

Innovation & research

A never ending quest for improvement and advancement

Researching animal welfare and pathology is a passion we share, with our work being used by industry bodies such as Dairy NZ, the Sustainable Farming Fund and Beef & Lamb.
