About us

“The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way it treats its animals”

~ Mahatma Ghandhi

Ponsonby Veterinary Centre was set up with this quote in mind!

In 1984, the States of the Council of Europe declared that: “Man has a moral obligation to respect all living creatures, in that they have a special relationship with man in contributing to the quality of life.

Our clients can expect to receive help and information on any topic concerning their pet’s health. The centre is equipped to perform all forms of surgical and diagnostic procedures. In fact we have ‘state of the art’ anaesthetic and monitoring equipment for safe and effective anaesthesia for pets of all ages. We also advise pre-anaesthetic blood screening to further reduce anaesthetic risk.

The centre is divided into two sections: The clinic, where the reception, shop and consulting rooms are located and the hospital, which contains the sterile operating suite and a preparation/hospitalisation area. The hospital has been designed to enable us to give your pets the maximum of care when they require surgery or hospitalisation.
