Our Veterinary Partners



Director & Veterinarian

Vaughan joined the practice in 1997 and became a partner in 1999.
He works solely on farm with dairy cows and enjoys the travel to service our Whakamaru clients. Vaughan is also an In Calf Advisor and is Condition Scoring Accredited


De Weerd

Director & Veterinarian

Eddy came to New Zealand from the Netherlands in 1999 and has not looked back since. Initially covering both small and large animals, Eddy has since focussed his time on that which he loves most – dairy cows. He became a partner in the business in 2006



Veterinarian & Practice Partner

Rochelle has worked at the clinic since graduating in 2009, splitting her time between large animal calls and working with cats and dogs in the clinic. Her heart may lie in small animal medicine and surgery, her favourite time of year is definitely the calving period
