CONVENIENT, TRUSTWORTHY, EASY.
We know how much you love your pet, and how stressful it is when they are unwell. We offer an affordable, video-conferencing consult vet service, as well as an online store with a wide range of flea, worming and pet supplies which provides maximum convenience to pet owners, minimal stress to pets and reduces the possibility of an unnecessary vet trip.
The team consists of experienced, New Zealand Vet Council registered and caring Kiwi veterinarians.
Our team of experienced, qualified veterinarians offer video call, voice call or messenger consultation options.
Often your regular vet will have a very busy schedule and may not have the time to talk through your pet's condition and answer all your questions, the online vet can help increase your knowledge and confidence in managing your pet's condition.
Particularly in New Zealand, some people can live quite far away from their regular veterinarian so online veterinary consults can help bridge the gap and increase the quality of care you can offer your pet.
Unsure if you need to visit the vet? we can talk through your pet's issue outlining potential causes, treatment options and prognosis with you.
No question too big or small we are here to help.
