how we got started

The story behind our vet practice

"I was inspired to start The Mobile Vet Nurse by an elderly client visiting the vet clinic I worked in. She would taxi in to us, borrow 3 cat cages, taxi back in - just for nail trims! I asked my vet if I could visit her next time to avoid the stress. It was a no. This is when I decided that there had to be a better way to help owners and their pets, without all the stress and doing it in the comfort of their own home.

Now we are part of many families across the Canterbury region, providing a wonderful service to animals and raising the level of care for animals. We are so honoured to be part of every pet's journey, through the happy to the inevitably sad times.

We thank you to all our loyal clients and making every visit a unique experience, it really is the best job in the world!"
Owner, Chrissy MacPherson
