About Us

South Wairarapa Veterinary Services (SWVets) has been established in the Wairarapa for nearly 40 years. We have four clinics in the region: Carterton, Featherston, Martinborough and Masterton. From the family to the farm, SWVets provide comprehensive livestock and equine services and complete companion pet care.

Our staff are passionate about providing the very best care for your animals. We aim to provide excellent animal health services

We provide an after-hours service to all our clients which means vets are available 24 hours a day. We have a farm vet, an equine vet, and a small animal vet on call to assist at all times. This ensures you get the specialist care your animal requires. Whether you are contacting us for advice or in an emergency, we are there to help.

If you need to see a vet at the weekend our Carterton clinic is open Saturday and Sunday. Clients from all our clinics are welcome to book an appointment.

Consistency in care is important to us: all our clinics are linked so any of our vets can access your pets’ records. If you would like to see a particular vet, just let us know at the time of booking and we can book you in with your preferred vet.


The Farm+ and Hub Team are here to support our large animal vets and provide a source of contact for our farmers and lifestyle block owners. Our team are ready to make your appointments, take orders for medications and help with planned large animal health needs.
