Services > Zone Visits Vets
Each area has a standard cheaper 'zone visit' charge for particular areas on certain days. This is to enable affordable visits for elective work as we can combine several visits in the same area. Generally we will make a time window for visits (eg 11-12) and we will do our best to ring you if we are running late so please let us know how we can reach you on the day of your visit! We will come out to your property any other day but mileage is calculated at $1.40 per km from the Masterton Clinic.
You are most welcome to combine horses at the same yard and you will only be charged the one visit fee.
The zone visit areas are as follows (all prices quoted include GST):
- North of Masterton to the Tararua district, including Pahiatua, Woodville and Eketahuna on Tuesdays. Alfredton $85, Eketahuna $65
- South Wairarapa inc Greytown, Featherston, Martinborough areas on Mondays. Greytown, Featherston and Martinborough $45, South of Martinborough ie Pirinoa $90
