Caris Teo,
BVSc (Dist).

Caris emigrated from Malaysia in 2002 and attended high school in Auckland before heading to Massey University. She graduated in 2011 with distinction and worked in a small animal practice for 2 1/2 years before joining us at Mill Road in 2014.


Caris is a dedicated vet, with a special interest in the field of small animal medicine. She is committed to continuing education, having studied courses in emergency medicine and thoracic emergencies just in the last year.


She lives by the motto “live hard & play hard”! When not hard at work helping our pets and their owners, she can be found pounding the hills training for long distance running races, swimming & exploring our beautiful beaches, tramping, reading, playing the piano, climbing or even trying her hand at surfing!

  • 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.
