Clinic services


Vetlife Timaru is a dynamic and intensive pet clinic which is Best Practice accredited.

Our new clinic is currently under construction and will be open to the public in November 2020.  The existing clinic is cosy, warm and welcoming for your pets.  Attached to the clinic is our boarding cattery which can house up to 36 cats (48 in new clinic) in warm, comfortable sleeping areas with heated flooring, in a safe and secure environment with an outdoor area, food preparation kitchen facilities and a garden view.  Timaru provides a 24-hour in-clinic emergency service for Vetlife’s South Canterbury clinics, so help is only a phone call away if needed.


We offer a variety of services to get your beloved pets back to their best.

Vetlife Timaru offers a wide range of services including consultations by appointment, full general and orthopaedic surgery, dentistry, in-house diagnostic facilities, nurse consultations, digital x-ray, and grooming services for cats.  We stock a large range of premium pet foods, prescription diets, pet toys and accessories, and the staff are here to give you the right advice to ensure your pets’ needs are met.
