Best practice accreditation

Hospital standards are the highest level of Best Practice accreditation available in New Zealand and clients are assured of a high standard of service and professionalism.  The accreditation is more demanding and represents an advanced level of veterinary treatment and care.

Rangiora Vet Centre is the fourth veterinary clinic to achieve this accreditation from the 500 clinics throughout New Zealand.

“Gaining and maintaining BESTPRACTICE Hospital accreditation is a lengthy and expensive process.  It involves rigorous auditing by an independent expert, but it is a standard the team wanted to achieve to ensure pets receive the best care possible at RVC,” says Director and veterinarian, Ben Davidson.

“Announcing our Hospital accreditation propels us toward our mission of being a centre of veterinary excellence for North Canterbury”, says Dr Davidson.


Orana Wildlife Park Vet Work

The vets at RVC have provided veterinary care to the animals at Orana Wildlife Park for over 30 years. With over 20 large cats, several species of African hoofed stock and our own precious native species, as well as many other animals from around the globe our Orana Park vet has plenty to do.

Over the years we have had many wild animals arrive at the clinic for life saving surgeries. These include dentals on lions, stitching up African wild dogs, gut surgery on cheetahs and recently we saw a kiwi with a rotting egg inside her.

Ben Davidson has recently taken over as the Orana Park vet from Dave Martin who has retired as the park vet after nearly twenty years. Dave featured in the Wild Vets TV series. Ben visits the park once a week to check on the animals and to discuss disease prevention and management plans with the keepers.
