Dr Martin Reid has run this clinic since 1985; originally graduating Massey with Distinction in 1983, Martin developed a keen interest in the medicine and surgery of cats and dogs. He had already developed a desire for animal health and welfare whilst completing an Honours Degree in Animal Physiology and Biochemistry at Canterbury University prior to attending vet school at Massey.
Continuing education is always a must in this profession and since those early days, Martin has also attained a membership of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists; this membership can only be gained by examination and is open to veterinary surgeons determined to lift their standards of professional practice.
In 2003 Martin attended the Slocum course of orthopedics in the USA to train for TPLO surgeries for which this clinic is now known.
Martin has 2 Burmese cats and a Hunterway dog.
