Innovative Vets in Rakaia

Working in tandem with our Riverside vets, our Rakaia clinic sits amongst intense dairy country where herd sizes reach over 3,000 cows, with some sheep and beef farms within the area also. 

Whilst the clinic is mainly large animal vets, Rakaia VetEnt also have a comprehensive small animal department and our vets in Rakaia regularly hold small animal clinics.

The Rakaia vet clinic also stocks a full range of dairy-related products and prescription drugs to service local dairy farms. Sheep drenches, lambing supplies and calf rearing products are also stocked there.
