Welcome to Hamilton Small Animal Veterinary Centre

Exceptional Care for your Exceptional Pet.

Welcome to Hamilton Small Animal Veterinary Centre.

We are Hamilton’s longest-standing, independently-owned vet practice and have proudly served the Hamilton Community for over 70 years.

A part of the Franklin Vets family since December 2023, and BESTPRACTICE accredited through the New Zealand Veterinary Association, we pride ourselves on the high quality of care we provide our patients.

Like us, Franklin Vets is a long-standing, independently owned practice, with 20 shareholders who all work within the business. They have 11 clinics across South Auckland, North Waikato, and Hauraki regions, plus a third share in the Vet Centre, Northland practice.

With over 65 vets across the group, there is also a large range of expertise and skills for our team to call on.  We also have a dedicated inventory team to help ensure we have the most up-to-date equipment and medicines on hand, meaning the best possible care for your pets.

We strive to make every visit to the clinic a pleasant and stress-free experience for clients and pets. Our approach to wellness, diagnostics, end of life care, and surgical services is refreshingly individualised.

No cookie cutters, no assumptions, just open-minded, genuinely compassionate care that takes into account our clients and their pet’s personality, circumstances, and needs.

Our team look forward to welcoming you to our clinic.
