Dr Erin Coomer

Dr Erin Coomer

With roots both over the ditch in Australia and here in sunny Hawkes Bay, Erin gained her BVSc from Massey University in Palmerston North. After graduation Erin spent the next 8 years practicing as a veterinarian in busy emergency practices throughout North America while her husband Alastair, one of the Surgeons here at VSA, progressed through his specialist surgical qualification.

Erin and Alastair settled back in NZ in 2011. Since arriving home, Erin has worked part time in both emergency and general practices in Auckland, while also raising their two daughters and the more recent addition of a son. Their furry family includes Harry the Border Terrier and Burmese cats Arthur and Teddy.

Erin joins our ranks as an experienced clinical veterinarian who will provide your pets with the very best of care.
