South Wairarapa Veterinary Services (SWVets) has been established in the Wairarapa for nearly 40 years. We have four clinics in the region: Masterton, Carterton, Martinborough and Featherston. From the family to the farm, SWVets provide comprehensive care for all species of animals - production, lifestyle, pleasure and companion.
Our staff are passionate about providing the higher quality care for your animals. We aim to provide excellent animal health services to your animals.
Our small animal Carterton clinic is open on Saturday and Sunday, and clients from all our clinics are welcome to book an appointment, however please note that appointments at the weekends are limited so it pays to book ahead for a wekeend appointment.
We have an in house laboratory which enables us to provide laboratory results to clients promptly to maxmise animal care. We utilise the services of referral laboratories for some of the more complex tests.
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 will try our best to book you in with your preferred vet.
Our vets are well trained and are kept up to date with continuing education encouraged. We welcome individual vets pursuing their personal veterinary interests and encourage them to do so. Our vets offer an extensive range of services to all clients.
We run a rural technician team alongside our vets to offer disbudding, vaccination, teat sealing and artificial insemination services.
We also offer equine services in the Upper Hutt Region, both routine and emergency. We have an equine hospital facility at our Carterton Clinic and welcome admissions into the hospital for routine and emergency work.
We sponsor numerous events throughout the year in all species. We have a relationship with Massey University and take on externship students from the University to help increase their caseload and exposure to routine veterinary work.
