The_Vet_Centre_redwood_street.jpgHistory
 
Centrally located with plenty of off-street parking, The Vet Centre Marlborough is designed to offer the highest standards of comfort, care and treatment.
 
Purpose built in 1998, we are a member of the New Zealand Veterinary Association’s BESTPRACTICE® accreditation programme. This means we have met the rigorous standards defined by the BESTPRACTICE® Committee of the NZVA, ensuring quality service for you, your pets and your livestock.
 
Separate cat and dog hospital wards have been designed to minimize your pet’s stress while they’re away from home. Air conditioning and under-floor heating keep both pets and people comfortable all year round.
 
Sterility and hygiene are paramount for any facility providing medical care. Our sterile operating theatre, stringent autoclaving protocols and separate isolation facility offer the level of hygiene that you’d expect to find in a private human hospital.
 
The Vet Centre is regularly visited by veterinarians seeking inspiration and innovative ideas for their own alterations or new clinics. We have created a relaxing, welcoming environment that utilizes the very latest technology and equipment.
 
BESTPRACTICE®

What is BESTPRACTICE?
We have met rigorous standards defined by NZVA in all areas of Veterinary Medicine.  Audit Report 2013
How will you & your pet benefit?
The standards are designed to cover all areas that will ensure that you and your pet get consistently high quality treatment. 
The Vet Centre achieved BESTPRACTICE® accreditation in November 2000.  By choosing to use The Vet Centre, you’re assured of receiving the best possible standard of service and the best possible care for your pets.
The New Zealand Veterinary Association Practice Standards were established as a means for the veterinary profession to promote and maintain superior standards of professionalism and service.
As noted on the NZVA BESTPRACTICE® website, “The standards encourage the ongoing critical evaluation of the practice’s surgical, medical, diagnostic and nursing protocols in order to maintain a high level of excellence. There is a strong emphasis on compliance with current New Zealand legislation as it affects veterinary practices and NZVA policy.”
Of around 400 veterinary practices within New Zealand, there only 65 who have current accreditation. The Vet Centre is the only practice accredited in the Marlborough region.

Participating practices are required to meet every component that make up the BESTPRACTICE® standards. Once achieved, accreditation is maintained through an independent audit every two years. Areas that are covered include:

The Vet Company

The Vet Company is a collective of five South Island veterinary practices including The Vet Centre.  Established in 1998, the purpose of The Vet Company is to provide clients and their pets with better service and better prices by combining purchases, staff training and promotional activities.
