Cats

OUR APPROACH

We’ll get your feline friend purring perfectly.

Cats hide illness and injury, it’s in their DNA.  We uncover and treat all sorts of illness and injury, that’s in our DNA.  We’re a bunch of cat lovers (you might catch a glimpse of AnnaBell, our in-house cat in Invercargill, normally curled up somewhere for a nap) and our veterinarians will take care of all your cats needs. 

From regular check-ups and preventative care, to emergency procedures, our clinics are equipped with everything needed to provide the highest quality care.  The latest diagnostic equipment is there for blood analysis and digital X-rays...and ultrasound machines (could your kitty be expecting?  We’ll soon find out).  Then there’s the surgical suites.  They are prepared and ready for small procedures to large and complex operations.

But none of the fancy equipment is as important as the veterinarians that use it.  And this is where the VetSouth difference lives.  We have some of the very best small animal veterinarians in New Zealand.  Highly trained, hugely experienced...and loving what they do, you’ll discover a bunch of people who are as passionate about your pets as you are. 

So what can we do?  We have you covered, from the smallest kittens to the oldest companion cats.  Specialists in preventative care and keeping your cat happy and healthy, we can conduct a range of of in-house tests to see if your pet has any nasties or ailments that require urgent or on-going treatment.

...and should your cat require an overnight stay, fear not.  Our snug and cosy cattery is climate controlled...and it is entirely possible the nurses will be giving your pet plenty of cuddles and making them feel right at home. 

And don't forget...we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
