Welcome to Veterinary House Hospital

Welcome to the Veterinary House Hospital. We are proud to acknowledge that we are one of the oldest Veterinary Hospitals in the beautiful midlands of Kwa-Zulu Natal.

Developed by the late Dr Ashton Tarr in the 1960’s, Veterinary House Hospital has attracted and employed a host of talented Veterinarians over the years, to service the burgeoning population of Pietermaritzburg and the surrounding farming community.

Our objective is, and always has been, to render exemplary Veterinary service to all animals. Our strength, therefore lies in our technical ability, our service ethic and our diversity of expertise, namely: Small Animals, Birds, Exotics, Production Animals, Equines, Wildlife, Welfare, Public Health and Research & Development.

To this end, our team currently comprises 6 experienced Veterinarians, 3 qualified veterinary nurses and a host of dedicated support staff, all operating from our Hospital at 339 Prince Alfred St and our two clinics, one at 459 Townbush Rd, Cascades and the other at 102 Shepstone Rd, Richmond, KZN.

We make a strong point of being available for our clients at all times. Our vets consult throughout the day and we have vets covering afterhours for 365 days of the year. We will always be able to help in an emergency. Your animal deserves the nothing but the best.

Our practice is focused on service and care. We hope to offer the highest standard of service to our clients and for your beloved pets…the highest quality care.

Yours Sincerely

The Vet House Team
