Our family have been cat lovers for years and it has always been a challenging exercise to find a Vet that understands how you feel about your pets and how they are part of your family. The team at Whangaparaoa Veterinary Centre understand this and have a great way of calming both human and feline down during the appointment! The team have always gone out of their way to give top notch experienced care to our furry family members, their advice is sound and easy to follow and best of all, their great service is affordable. Cats are fickle beings, it is really all about them! The team recognise this and our cats are made to feel welcome and are handled gently through the whole experience. This leaves a calm and content feline, who emerges from the cage with nose in air when arriving home. A big thank you to the team at Whangaparaoa Veterinary Centre for their quality care and understanding, I highly recommend their services.”

I have been going to Whangaparaoa Vets now for over 15 years. They do an excellent job in looking after my cats. I usually see Shanti, the Vet, who is such a good vet. The other Vets are also excellent.”
In November last year, our little 2 and a half year old miniature schnauzer, Daisy, underwent an extensive program of chemotherapy, of approximately 6 months duration.
Daisy was diagnosed as having lymphoma by Dr. Shanti Scott, a condition which meant that she only had about six weeks to live. Dr. Scott explained to us all possible options and Daisy underwent a few difficult months as she received intravenous chemotherapy.
Throughout the whole of her treatment, all the staff at Whangaparaoa Vet Centre were very caring and supportive, always approachable, and at times, admitting Daisy overnight for several nights as they cared for her during the tough times.
Daisy was always welcomed despite her over-the-top enthusiasm and is now quickly returning to her old self with regrowth of her coat and boisterous behaviour.
We look forward to enjoying Daisy's company for hopefully many years to come.
We will always be grateful for the caring and supportive environment at Whangaparaoa Vet Centre and for Dr. Scott's quiet reassuring professional advice and concern.”
The environment for Puppy Preschool was great, safe, and just what our puppy needed. We really enjoyed seeing the rest of the surgery, knowing now where surgery etc is performed puts us at rest and reassures us. Eileen was amazing. Thank you for your professionalism, genuine warmth, and care. We so appreciate your patience, your interest in each puppy, and willingness to share info and stories. We would recommend puppy classes to everyone.”
We had our cat "Charlie" in with the wonderful staff at Whangaparaoa Vet Clinic to have her teeth cleaned and a medical check up. I can't thank them enough for the attention and care they gave her that day. They verbally outlined everything that had been done for Charlie during the day and sent us home with a folder stating the details with before and after photos of her teeth. They also gave us details of what to expect in the next few days. Wow! Thanks again.”
Dear Team of Whangaparoa Veterinary Centre,
On behalf of our Boxer boy Baikal we would like to thank you for your caring and support.
Baikal has recently undergone a surgery (Bladder stones removal). Having to put your pet through something like this is not easy and is quite stressful, however your wonderful team were very caring and supportive, always approachable and would always try to explain things in as much details as possible and would meet us for more consultations. Special thank you to friendly and welcoming nurses Jaskarn Singh, Eileen Mowat and Amber Corney. Big thank you to Dr Shanti Scott, Dr Erin Cassie and Dr Emma Gerber for taking care of our boy so well. I’m terribly sorry if I’ve missed other members of your team, we had a pleasure of meeting a lot of members of your team recently and you are all wonderful people! Baikal has fully recovered now and is a happy puppy again! Typical boxer – running, jumping playing and enjoying his life to its full again 😊”

Thank you all so much for the loving care and compassion you gave to our dog Bella and to our family. With such a sudden diagnosis for Bella we were dumbstruck and appreciate how you helped us to make the best decision for her. She enjoyed her final hours with all of her family by her side - enjoying a bbq sausage and licking everyone! Thank you again.”
We take all our pets to Whangaparaoa vet clinic and have done for years. Just had Ubu back again, and as always get the same amazing , personal service. Thanks so much!”
Lost one of my boys a couple of weeks ago and received a hand written card from the team. Tried to do what they could but the biggest thing was the honesty with the situation, compassion and true care they show through the whole process which makes them special. Thanks Erin for the effort.”
Very caring and helpfull staff
Have always gone there for our pets”
Absolutely amazing, my cat couldn't have been in a better place before she passed. Thank you all so much.”
Always had great service here. My Boxer thinks its party time when we come for a visit!”
Best pet care. Sraff really care about the pets and owners.”
Such wonderfull staff at Whangaparaoa Vet Centre, and they are so loving and caring toward your animals. We know our Teddy Bear couldn't have been in better hands for his surgery today. 😘”
They have looked after my boy Jordie for nearly 13 years now and they drop everything if he becomes sick quickly and I have to rush him up. The vets Shanti and Emma have a huge passion for what they do and thats what good vets should be about after all our fur babies are family.”
thank you so much for making Sophi better xxxxx and I would recommend you guys in a second so friendly and very helpful”
Whangaparaoa Vet Centre have taken care of my Registered Assistant Hearing Dog "Jett" to a very high standard when required and have displayed a total commitment to her when also required. When "Jett" and I go into the Vet Centre for anything, there's no holding "Jett back".”
Thank you so very much for the lovely card you sent to us on the loss of our Samson cat. It was really touching to receive a card with such heartfelt messages from the team.
Losing Samson is an incredibly sad time for us and to know that you've taken the time to send your thoughts and wishes means a great deal.
Samson's care with WGP vets was first class, and your guidance on how best to support him in his final weeks helped us to look after him as best we could.”
I'm over the moon with Lola's clean teeth and fresh breath. (Lola is a 5 year old Chihuahua who wouldn't even let us look at her teeth, or cut her claws), she had very bad breath and I suspected something was amiss, sure enough she needed 3 extractions and a clean and scale. I'm so glad I had it done, I was nervous because she's really small and anxious and had to be asleep for the procedure, but she breezed through the whole thing! Her breath is fresh as a daisy now, and claws done. Thanks Claire!”
Went to see Monique yesterday with my incredibly itchy and miserable cat. After thorough examination and treatment of him, within three hours of returning home, he started showing strong signs of his normal smoochy and friendly behaviour. Can’t thank Monique enough for getting Mowgli back to his old self. He’s clearly missed being such an integral member of the household, and now can’t stand being away from one of us, even for a minute. Thank you, thank you Monique.😻”
Friendly and caring staff always going over and above giving you the information you need .Thank you Emma for your kindness.”
