Our Services

Vetlife Dunsandel is based in a new purpose built clinic covering a variety of species including cats and dogs, dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep and deer. The clinic’s area of activity covers a wide district, ranging from below the Rakaia River to above the Selwyn River, including Ellesmere and Hororata/Darfield.

We stock a wide range of products, ranging from pet toys and food, to cattle and sheep essentials.

The small animal clinic is well equipped with a digital x-ray, dental machine, new surgical suite and other standard equipment. Please contact our friendly team for any advice you may require. We are always happy to help.

Dairy is a field of expertise that our Senior Veterinarians here know well.  The amount of vet involvement for each farm varies, depending on each farms requirements/wishes.  This ranges from standard ambulance and basic planning work, through to detailed reproductive, mastitis and animal health plans.  We have vets and techs who are trained and accredited in the fields of InCalf, Healthy Hoof, Condition Scoring and a NMAC mastitis advisor.

A Representative from our clinic routinely visits each farm, ensuring a continuous communication link between Vets & clients, and  providing regular support for clients .

Vetlife Dunsandel also has the benefit of a Veterinary Sheep & Beef Consultant who provides solid and valuable experience in all areas of this farming system.

The Dunsandel team is committed to quality service, and strives to provide the highest standards of care for your animals. A 24 hour emergency after hours service is also available.
