Dear valued clients of Northlands Animal Care Hospital

We hope you and your furry friends are having a great day! We have some exciting news to share with you about the changes happening at our clinic.

As you all must know, we pride ourselves in our motto “Caring, Quality Service” but did you know we carry this out all week long? We are one of the only vet clinics in Christchurch open all week. Yes, that’s 7days a week, Monday through to Sunday. Happy, smiley, QUALITY service to you and your pets. We are now thrilled to announce that we are expanding our services and introduce you to Dr Erica Gatland who is joining Keryn and Silvi on a full-time basis. This means as of April 2023 we are not only open 7days a week, but we are also available all day for vet consults, and emergencies. Yup, you got that right! AND we have the most pawesome nursing team to boot. Let’s all take a minute to appreciate the awesome vet nurses of the world (a minute…) We have 10 of these extraordinary beings in our employ, that’s an average of 1 to 3.3 nurses per vet, per vet, a worldwide industry gold standard. This is great news for your furry loved ones, do let them know we have stocked up on treats and cuddles.

On a bittersweet note, we are approaching the retirement of Euan, who has been a valuable member of our industry for close to 50years. Euan has been reducing his hours over the last two years and has decided to hang up his stethoscope and spend more time with his wife Shar. We want to express our gratitude for his tireless service to our pets and community,
and we are sure you will join us wishing him all the best in his future endeavours. Although he may be retiring, he will remain a familiar face around the clinic from time to time, continuing to assist in complicated cases or for consultation by arrangement.

As we move into this exciting new chapter, we are thrilled to inform you that Keryn and Bree have taken over ownership on Northlands Animal care Hospital. They, (we) are dedicated to maintaining the high standard of care and quality reputation established and we will continue to be independently owned in Christchurch.

We also want to remind you of our online portal, where you can access your pet’s financial records, standards of care, and our bookings dashboard. Get in touch if you’d like this link emailed to you. Did you know that you can request repeat prescriptions and food orders through our website?

Lastly, we encourage you to follow us on Instagram and Facebook and if you leave us a Google review you stand a chance to win spot prizes, prescription food, flea or tick control, and more. Thank you for choosing Northlands Animal Care Hospital for your pet’s care, and we look forward to serving you in the future.

Keep those tails wagging!
Keryn and Bree
