Why is choosing the right dairy vet so important?
Here at Dairy Vets our vision is to impact wellbeing whether that's your herd or your team by inspiring trusting, rewarding and caring relationships.
Nathan and Anna started Dairy Vets in 2013. We started off with our kitted out vet trucks, working out of our home garage. We were pleased to employ our first vet after a year and a half and have a night off being on call! Since then Dairy Vets has continued to grow and evolve: we have moved offices twice with the need to have more space to accommodate our growing team.
We are incredibly proud of our team of vets, technicians and office staff. They are a team of enthusiastic, committed people who are passionate about the dairy industry. Our working values are we have fun; we build sustainable relationships and we support each other.
Our vision is to impact wellbeing: this is for animals and people. It’s important to us that what we do improves animal health and wellbeing by providing the best possible service to our dairy clients.
Our mission is to inspire trusting, rewarding and caring relationships: we believe this is the basis for great outcomes for our dairy clients.

Significent physical & financial performance improvements
“What I like about Dairy Vets is there is a good mix of planning, capable vets, and analysis of results.
This has helped us to incrementally improve our management of :-
- wintering on fodder beet
- body condition
- transition cows
Our Farm Managers and staff enjoy working with the vets and technicians. With good planning and proactive communication there is never any doubt about what needs to be happening on farm, and when it needs to happen.
The physical and financial performance of the farms has improved significantly over the period we have been involved with Dairy Vets.”
Tom Mason, Terracostosa Farm Group, 3000 cows.
Great people, with great values
“I’ve known Anna and Nathan from before they started their business. I always liked the fact that both of them think as farmers and that they aren’t focused in treatment but in prevention.
We run very low cost of production systems and their approach suits us perfectly. Over the years we have improved the way we farm thanks to their support and advice.
The other very important quality Anna and Nathan have are their values. They are very kind and approachable and our staff have always felt comfortable working with them. This is also the same with the staff Dairy Vets employs. All the vets, techs and office staff are great people with great values.”
Carlos Cuadrado. 900 and 560 cows. Seafield.
International experience proves valuable
“The team at Dairy Vets have international experience and attention to detail that have proven valuable to our dairy business. This has allowed us to focus not only on treating clinical issues, but also on disease prevention and mating management.”
Jessie Chan & Hayden Dorman. Share-milking 950 cows, Rakaia
