Specialist Veterinary Services in the South Island
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
Our 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.
Specialist expertise in surgery
Our Christchurch team is lead by Dr Alastair Coomer, Director of VSA and Registered Specialist in Small Animal Surgery.Our specialist surgeons provide treatment across a number of disciplines including, but not limited to:
- VSA Cancer Care
- Urinary Tract Surgery and Hydraulic Sphincter Placement
- Soft Tissue Surgery
Our team provides advanced diagnostic imaging services to ensure that an in-depth plan can be made and appropriate treatments can be recommended.
At VSA Christchurch we have in-house CT, radiographs (x-rays) and ultrasound as well as access to offsite MRI.
Having access to all of these modalities means that our clinicians are able to target diagnostic imaging to the specific needs of our patients.
Our veterinary qualified physiotherapist, Cath, is able to tailor a rehab plan for individual patient needs.
Part of something great
Collaboration is a big part of our VSA culture and with 3 hospitals and a growing team of specialists, we are able to share the knowledge and expertise whenever we need to.
This enables us to bring these specialist services to Christchurch through our extended VSA team.
