Our Involvement In The Whangarei Community

Police Dogs

We are proud to be the vets for all the Whangarei Police Dogs.


We work closely with the police dog handlers to keep the dogs fit and healthy and ready to fight crime on the streets of Whangarei!


Native Bird Recovery Centre

In recognition of the great work done at the Native Bird Recovery Centre, Mill Road Vet Clinic donates veterinary time and expertise, drugs and equipment to the centre.


Bruce Pickford, who once looked after the cats and dogs at Mill Road, now devotes his energy to Whangarei's sick and injured birds.


In fact he loves his work there so much, he volunteers many hours of his own time over and above the clinic's sponsorship! He has undertaken all sorts, from an eye operation on a Morepork, to intravenous feeding of a drought-starved Kiwi. Never a dull moment!



Our exclusively small animal vets are supported by a team of qualified vet nurses.

  • A heartfelt thank you to everyone for the care, help and compassion shown.

  • Just wanted to say a very heart-felt thank you for literally saving Bosca’s life.

  • Knowing our pets have always been in such a kind and caring environment, with such wonderful, capable people means so much.

  • You are a one in a million veterinary team!

  • You guys are super heroes!

  • You have made a stressful situation so much easier to deal with, with your friendliness and professional approach.
