24/7 Veterinary Care

Providing round the clock 24/7 veterinary care

October 31st 2016

The Rangiora Vet Centre team is ready to announce that we are now providing round the clock, 24/7 veterinary care at the Rangiora clinic, 181 Lehmans Road.

Planning and recruitment began at the beginning of the year, we then undertook a trial period, testing procedures and protocols, after a lot of hard work by a number of people, we are ready to go live and promote this exciting service to the public.

The decision to start the 24 hour service came from continual requests from clients inconvenienced by having to transport their pets into Christchurch for emergency after hours care and overnight hospitalisation. Consistent care at the very best level is available to pets requiring after hours emergency treatment, surgical recovery, monitoring, repeat medication and overnight hospitalisation.
