Specialist Veterinary Services in the South Island

VSA CHRISTCHURCH

146 Antigua Street, Christchurch

Our newest hospital, VSA Christchurch, opened its doors in November 2021. We are located in Addington in an architecturally award-winning building in which we have created our state-of-the-art veterinary hospital.

By expanding our referral services into Christchurch it allows us to be able to offer our support and expertise to veterinary GPs across the South Island. 

Our goal is to improve the outcomes of all of our patients while providing exceptional, advanced veterinary care. We are pleased to now be able to extend this service to Christchurch and the South Island bringing specialist referral services to clients and patients that need them.

VETERINARY SPECIALISTS AOTEAROA

CHRISTCHURCH

Our new Christchurch veterinary hospital enables us to bring not only our specialist team, but also specialist clinical and diagnostic facilities to the South Island not previously available without travel to Auckland.

For pet owners and vets in the South Island, this means an advanced level of veterinary treatment and care is accessible, without adding the further stress of travel.

Does your pet need specialist treatment?
