"It is my pleasure to categorically state my support for a company that I believe the City of Hamilton and indeed the wider Waikato region can be very proud of.

Hamilton Veterinary Services has been carrying out my equine work since 1981. Since 1987, Dr Douglas Black has been Te Akau racing Stable and Stud’s veterinary surgeon – a role that he has executed with total professionalism and expertise at all times during this long association.

Hamilton Veterinary Services is a well organised practice that comprises highly skilled veterinary surgeons and support staff. As a practice, it also stays in touch with worldwide developments in equine veterinary practice meaning our horses are receiving the best care possible. They have a common sense approach to veterinary care and service and I am proud to have had a partnership with them for over 30 years."

"Hamilton Veterinary Services has been an integral part of the enormous success of Te Akau Racing Stable for over 25 years.
The HVS Equine Veterinary team is first class. HVS employs vets with great understanding not only of horses, but also of the specific demands of the horse racing industry. The Veterinary team is ably supported by a terrific administration team which provides a friendly, efficient and very professional service.
I placed my 100% trust in HVS throughout my training career in NZ and I still call from Singapore regularly to seek the valued opinion of the Hamilton Veterinary Services Equine vets , in particular Dr Douglas Black who has played a huge part in the success of our stable. Douglas and the HVS team have directly helped us to win multiple training premierships and we have achieved more than 20 Group 1 wins together. I cannot speak highly enough of HVS."

"Pencarrrow Stud was established in 1981and throughout this time Hamilton Veterinary Services has catered for our veterinary requirements. This has involved every aspect, including Surgical, reproductive, racehorses, yearling sales (sale and purchase) and general husbandry. I have found this company to operate to the highest possible standards in every area. From receptionists and nurses to administration and obviously veterinarians themselves. They have an enviable blend of technical expertise and practical experience.

The development of our operation could not have been achieved without expert veterinary support. Hamilton Veterinary Services has been an integral part of Pencarrow Stud for 30 years and we look forward to the continuation of this relationship.

"2012 saw HAMILTON VETERINARY SERVICES come alongside ESNZ EVENTING. Alec Jorgenson became the NZ Team Vet and has already been involved in two Senior Trans Tasman competitions, one at Kihikihi in NZ, April 2012, the other in Sydney, April 2013. Alec is also involved in with the Performance Squad riders and the Performance programme, aimed to develop talented NZ riders for the future.

ESNZ Eventing are extremely fortunate to have the services of one of NZ’s finest veterinary practices and one of their top veterinarians. Alec not only brings exceptional veterinary skills, but also a personality that many teams would envy. Alec understands the high demands on our horses for our sport, and knows how to diagnose, treat and deal with important issues when they arise. Team NZ Eventing have high expectations and require the best in the business. We hope we have their support for a long time to come."

If you value your horses like I do, I can highly recommend the professional expertise of Hamilton Veterinary Services."

"We have been using Hamilton Veterinary Equine Services for several years now, which is a huge advantage for trainers in Taranaki. Hamilton Vets are excellent to deal with and have state of the art imaging equipment. They give reliable diagnostic solutions all with good humour. I am just hoping the Naki join the Chiefs and that would complete the team effort!!"

"Brighthill Farm has used Hamilton Veterinary Services for all our veterinary needs since the farm started in 1996. The service we receive from them is of the highest quality and rates as good as any vet practice I have experienced around the world. Hamilton Vets has been a real asset for Brighthill Farm and the growth and development of our business.
One notable quality of the practice that is a big help to us as clients is the depth of veterinary staff in the practice meaning the quality of service you receive is always very high no matter which of the vets arrives at the property.
The specializing of vets in crucial areas such as reproductive,radiography, surgery and lameness is also a big part to their success as a practice."
