  5. The reception will take the credit card payments over the phone or Genoapay/Zip payments can be taken digitally.

We reassure you that your pet will get their usual treats and loving attention, while in the consult.

Purchasing Nutrition, Medicine and other supplies

Please ring in advance to advise us of the food or medicine you need for your pet. We can take payment over the phone or you can show us proof of online payment when you arrive to pick up your order. The direct credit online payment will not show in our account until the next working day, so plan your payments accordingly in advance. Call us from the car park and we will bring your order out to you, using the required safe distance.

We may courier these items, at a small charge. Plan in advance.

For self isolating or unwell clients

  • If you are sick or displaying any flu/cold symptoms we respectfully ask you to not come in to the clinic. We do not want to put our staff or other clients at risk so will not be consulting with anyone who has these symptoms.
  • If you have a contact who is unwell, please tell us by phone before arriving so we can assess risk and plan how we can best help you and your animal.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during these trying times.

In case of Emergency

Please call us before arriving – this will ensure someone is available and organised to help your pet readily.

The team at Pet Vet Papatoetoe are wonderful. My kitten Wesley was very unwell and Dr Singh and his team did wonders to get her better. The support, care and love towards wesley and my family was comforting. We were able to leave Wesley with Dr Singh and Gaylene for two days whilst at work and were able to pick her up in the afternoons. I was updated with the progress of Wesley throughout the day which was awesome. We are so happy Wesley is back to her cheeky, lovable and friendly self. Thank you so very much Pet Vet Papatoetoe. You guys are amazing. My family and I genuinely appreciate all you have done for our Wesley. Thank you, thank you, thank you 😊💕

The staff and vet here are so great and they actually care about the health of cats compared to other places I’ve been. My cat had to have an emergency operation and they were the only vets welling to do it on a weekend and at an affordable price :) highly recommend them!!!

I’m so glad I switched to Pet Vets Papatoetoe, Gale the receptionist such a welcoming face when you walk in. The Vet doctors there are awesome and very informative when it comes to our fur babies. Highly recommend them.

So happy with our experience at Pet Vets Papatoetoe. They made sure that our puppy Luna had a great experience from her very first appointment - so much so that she gets super excited to go to the vet now! All the staff are so friendly and helpful, and will go above and beyond to help. I can't recommend them highly enough.

We are so pleased to have Pet Vets open in Papatoetoe!! We have had to visit several times in the last few weeks and every time we have been so well looked after. Hameet has gone out of his way to check every possibility and to keep our costs down. He has checked up after we have come home to make sure our dog was doing okay. He even followed up, with a call, the morning after we had to have a midnight visit to the emergency vet. He is very thorough and we feel confident he does everything possible to get the best outcome for our pets. Gaylene always meets us with a smile and is so welcoming and friendly. We feel that all the staff really care about our pets and us. I highly recommend Hameet and his wonderful team to look after your pets and do the best for them and you. Thank you Pet Vets. 😊

Awesome vets. Been in Auckland on holiday and have had both my cats that have needed to see the vets. Very efficient, super quick at making you an appointment. Went to after hours vets who wanted to do surgery on my pet and charge me 3k! Next morning came to pet vets who said does not need surgery so saved me thousands of dollars literally. Would highly recommend them. And if I move back to Auckland will deffinatly be my local vet.

We are very pleased with the service we have received from the staff at Pet Vets. The reception staff are friendly and welcoming and super helpful! The vet Dr Harmeet has been amazing to all our cats and we have trusted him as their vet for years. He is very knowledgeable and genuinely cares for them - even if it is a simple yearly checkup. Would highly recommend them :) Milo agrees too!
