We understand that when our pets are sick, we need to be looked after too.

Pets are part of the family – that’s why at Calder Vets we treat everybody’s pets with the same respect and care that a person would receive. Understanding the powerful bond between people and animals is at the core of what we do. This helps us to look after our customers with empathy and respect and our patients with kindness and compassion.

  • Kazier

    “I am very pleased with the way Calder Vets dealt with my German shepherd’s claim. Both of Kaizer’s hind legs had developed a deformity and we were concerned our pet insurance may not honour the claim. Fortunately Calder vets dealt with the whole process from to start to finish with his treatment and the paperwork involved with the pet insurance.”
