Animal Referral Centre Cat Clinic

The best care for your best mate

A feline friendly veterinary specialist and emergency hospital


Animal Referral Centre (ARC) is a 24/7 specialist and emergency veterinary hospital designed in accordance with International Feline Medicine Society (IFMS) standards. We have separate reception areas, waiting rooms, consultation rooms and hospitalisation wards for cats and dogs, ensuring minimal stress for our feline patients.


ARC is an accredited Cat Friendly Clinic and is one of the few veterinary hospitals in New Zealand to be awarded gold status by the IFMS.


Our specialists in Internal Medicine, Surgery, Cardiology, Oncology and Diagnostic Imaging and our emergency veterinarians work closely with your regular veterinarian to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your cat.


ARC does not provide any routine veterinary services such as desexing, vaccination and dentistry. To book an appointment with a specialist your cat will need a referral from your usual veterinary clinic. Emergency after hours care can be accessed without a referral.
