PET DOCTORS HOWICK

The Pet Doctors Howick team speak Mandarin, Cantonese, Russian, Dutch and English, much to the delight of their clients. The clinic has had a refresh including their reception area and signage, leaving the clinic looking fantastic.


The clinic recently had a bird, Lexi, brought in by two locals who found her in the community. Lexi is a 5 year old Eclectus Parrot. After a little detective work the clinic found out that her owners had let her go back into the environment before they moved to another country. Lexi has a gentle personality, and loves taking treats from the team’s hands, and is now a great clinic attraction. She must feel comfortable, as she has started to talk almost every day, clean language thank-goodness, but the team love hearing her new phrases. The team are glad that Lexi made her way to the clinic, and she was fortunate to find her forever home with Shalee, who brings her into the clinic each day. As well as Lexi, the Eclectus Parrot, the clinic has also once had a penguin brought into the clinic, who was found on a local beach. The penguin was taken to Pet Doctors Exotics clinic to be cared for but it was a great experience for the team to be able to get up and close and personal with the little guy.


We cater to the Howick, Highland Park, Bucklands Beach, Pakuranga, Whitford and Beachlands areas.

Rebecca

Rebecca

Veterinary Nurse - Howick

Before studying for her Certificate in Veterinary Nursing, Rebecca was a qualified chef for 5 years but decided she wasn't fulfilled enough in her career and didn't want to spend her life in a job that she didn't love. She has always wanted to work with animals and vet nursing has become a career she is extremely passionate about and loving.

Rebecca is most excited for her career with Pet Doctors Howick, especially having the chance to learn and gather knowledge from such a supportive team.

Rebecca has two cats; Ebola (blame her stepdad for the name!) and Niko who's as spoilt as anything. In her free time, she enjoys DIY restoration projects such as old chairs & tables, and going for long walks.
