About Us

Christchurch veterinary care!

Northlands Animal Care Hospital was first established in the Papanui area in 1981. We then outgrew our original location (opposite Northlands Mall) and in we 2000 moved into a brand new purpose-built hospital located on the corner of Cranford Street and Main North Road.

Your pet’s health and well-being are our highest priority! It is our goal to preserve and strengthen that, using modern veterinary medicine with good old-fashioned care, compassion and respect!! Your pet has the benefits of the latest medical technology at Northlands Animal Care Hospital.

Our caring Veterinarians and nursing staff have a fantastic level of expertise, we are happy to answer all questions about your pet’s health anytime! All of our staff are dedicated to continuing education, with training in superior technology and the latest medicines, diagnostics and procedures. Our surgical procedures use state-of-the-art equipment in which we perform a wide range of procedures from soft tissue and cancer treatment to more advanced orthopaedic and reconstructive operations.

We have a comprehensive modern lab onsite for pre-anaesthetic screening, senior and sick animal health profiles, as well as tests for feline ids, feline leukaemia, parvovirus and a number of other viral conditions.

For complex conditions, we offer referral for CT and MRI scanning and have a digital x-ray system and ultrasound on-site.

We believe that client education is the first and most important step in helping you to provide your furry friend to have excellent pet health. We offer up-to-date and accurate client education articles through our pet health library.
