The Mobile Vet Nurse Ltd was started in 2010 to provide in-home veterinary nursing and preventative health care for companion pets. Owner and qualified veterinary nurse, Chrissy MacPherson, wanted to give pets and their owners calm, stress-free experiences.
Chrissy has had a passion for pets and people since childhood. After one of her cats was hit by a car and died in surgery, she started volunteering to help at her local vet clinic at weekends. After eight months, she was offered a full-time job and hasn't looked back.
After working for over a decade in two different clinics, Chrissy realised there was a need, especially for elderly clientele, for in-home care. One particular, heartbreaking experience prompted her to establish a mobile vet nurse service in Christchurch.
Demand for her services quickly grew, and The Mobile Vet Nurse began expanding the team in 2016.
The Mobile Vet Nurse Services are available in the following locations:

Part of Your Family
The Mobile Vet Nurses are experienced at animal care, compassion, patience and assisting in surgery. In many cases, they are considered to be part of their client's family. They are often involved in the pet's life, from its baby years through to old age. This adds to creating a great visit for everyone.
Ensure that your pet has premium health care throughout its life by scheduling regular health checks and pampering sessions with your local Mobile Vet Nurse. Contact Us to book a session, or to learn more about our services click here.
