Companion animal

At Massey University we have New Zealand's only veterinary teaching hospital. This state-of-the-art facility is open to the public offering routine animal health checks, specialist diagnostic procedures and treatments and a 24/7 Pet Emergency Centre. Veterinary students are exposed to the clinic early in their degree and spend their final year doing rotations alongside senior clinical staff.

Veterinary students get a lot of hands-on experience with horses assisting with consultations, radiographs, CT scans and endoscopy under the supervision of specialist equine veterinarians.

Wildbase

Wildbase is New Zealand's only dedicated wildlife hospital and it's here on the Massey campus! Wildbase treats some of the world's most endangered birds, including the iconic kiwi. Veterinary students who are keen on birds can elect to do rotations in this unique facility, and get up close and personal with these rare creatures.

Farm

With 2000ha of Massey owned farmland around campus, there are plenty of farm animals to work with. We have a purpose-built large animal teaching unit so our veterinary students can get hands-on experience with these production animals during their study. These practical experiences on farm are invaluable to our students and they're also a lot of fun.
