We feel that pet ownership is very much part of the lifestyle of the beautiful East Coast Bays region and we are proud to have been a part of that for more than thirty years.

We offer a welcoming and friendly atmosphere along with a comprehensive range of medical and surgical services. We believe that working in the Pet Health Industry is the best possible career and our dedicated and skilled team are constantly working to improve our standards of care.

East Coast Bays Veterinary Clinic was one of the first Clinics to provide a Veterinary service on the North Shore. Dr Steve Gordon, the Practice owner, has been a part of the Practice since 1990. Many positive advances have occurred in Veterinary medicine over this time and East Coast Bays Vet Clinic has stayed at the cutting edge and evolved with them.

We have an amazing team of talented Veterinarians and trained Nurses that all provide a great range of skills and interests for our clients. You will often also be greeted by our very relaxed Clinic cat "Mr Crymble"  when you visit.

Our pet hospital is modern and roomy with air conditioning throughout for client and pet comfort as well as being conveniently located with easy access and parking.

A significant building project has recently been completed bringing our facility up to a very high standard. We have separate hospital wards for cats and dogs as well as an isolation ward for infectious cases. We have two surgeries now with a high end surgery filled with gadgets and hepa filtered air for added sterility. If we are not focussed on critical patient care one our nurses would be pleased to give you a tour.

Providing high standards of service in a caring enviroment is our teams mission.

Community values

We have been part of the East Coast Bays pet loving world for over thirty years and very much value the community we live and work in.

We have a long history of contributing to various welfare groups that assist with the management of unowned pets particularly stray and feral cats in our region.

Our latest project is called " Homeless Hounds " and is our practical way of helping those dogs that are mistreated or abandandoned in our community. We are working with Hurrah, The Dog Protection Society and the Animal Shelter to help them help more dogs. We are regularly providing a completely free desexing operation, check over and any due vaccinations to ideal candidates selected by these groups.

We will post these dogs on our Facebook page when a loving home is still required so please share with friends.

Some of the lucky Hounds taht are now destined for wonderful lives can be seen in our gallery 

Just a huge thank you to Steve and the girls for all the wonderful work you have done for Forgotten Felines over the last 20 years - many, many thanks Sylvia "

Whangaparaoa Veterinary Centre

Dr Steve Gordon also has ownership in Whangaparoa Vet Centre. Steve's energy and focus on providing the highest standards of care in a friendly caring environment is clearly evident here too.

We also have an awesome talented and caring team led by Dr Emma Gerber, Dr Shanti Scott and Dr Monique Veen. There are six fully trained nurses to ensure your pet is always attended to and pampered.

Whangaparaoa Vet Centre has also been serving its local community for over thirty years and is open seven days.

We have replaced and upgraded every piece of equipment and progress continues with new equipment being added like our ultrasound machine and the same high end IDEXX laboratory that we have at East Coast Bays Vet Clinic. We also have digital radiology now and new isolation ward.

We are also proudly Best Practice Accredited which provides another layer of professionalism and certainty that your pets are in safe hands.

Dr Steve often visits to support the team and perform some advanced surgical procedures. The team also has the full support of the large East Coast Bays Vet team and resources. A referral to East Coast Bays Vet to access some of our more advanced procedures like endoscopy, orthopaedics and ultrasound, if needed, broadens what can be offered in the Hibiscus Coast region at general practice level.

The Clinic is open seven days and til 7pm weekdays as well as offering a cattery and puppy school. It is located opposite the Plaza and next to the police station on the corner of Whangaparaoa Rd and Stanmore Bay Rd. Phone 094247752 

It would be a wonderful compliment if you were to recommend family or friends that live in the area to register with our sister clinic.
