Vetcare Tauranga is made up of two clinics, Vetcare Bethlehem and Vetcare Cherrywood. We are a gold standard small animal practice, with a reputation for going above and beyond. We believe in treating our client’s animals like they are our own.

Our great team of Veterinary Surgeons are – Campbell Johnston, Garry Ball, Marcus Dean, Kathleen Limpus, Raewyn Sygrove, Charlotte Travers, and Katy Johnston. They provide a full range of services, with interests including orthopaedic surgery, endoscopy, ultrasonography, dermatology, dentistry, oncology, radiography, ophthalmology, soft tissue surgery and emergency care.

Our vets combined have 151 years of experience, so between them there aren’t many conditions that they haven’t seen. There will often be a vet think-tank to discuss the more puzzling and rare cases they are working on, in the treatment room after consults or around the morning tea table.

Our support staff are made up of Practice Manager, Qualified Vet Nurses, and Receptionists: Christine, Debby, Lia, Caitlin, Ashalyn, Chalice, Debbie, Libby, Maria, Karen, Sheree, Debbie M and Emma. We are all professional and skilled in our respective fields, we all have a lot of knowledge about the care of your furry family members and are happy to answer any questions. If we don’t know the answer, we will find out for you. We have a range of pet products in clinic and can give advice on what will best suit your pet, from food, collars, harnesses, toys, treats, flea & worm treatments, and much more.

We run a very busy Puppy Preschool at our Cherrywood branch in the evenings. It is a fun-filled and informative class for puppies between 8 and 16 weeks old. As soon as we have 4 to 6 puppies on the waiting list one of our three Puppy Preschool Nurses, Kimberly, Emma or Chris, will give you a ring with dates and any information you will need. These classes are a fun and safe way for the puppies to socialise with other pups and with other people, and for the puppy’s family to see how different breeds play and what play is ok. Classes also go through the basic care that is needed for owning a puppy.

For an appointment at one of our clinics, give one of our lovely receptionists a call. They can make you an appointment at either clinic, or we have an online booking system you will see at the top of the page.

House calls are available where appropriate and when time is available, please call the clinic for more information.

We support our clients with 24-hour emergency services. When unexpected help is needed ring our phone number and there will be an Emergency cell phone number for you to reach the on-call Vet.
