Dr Michelle Mills

BVSc MVM

Veterinarian
Michelle joined the veterinary team in 2009 following her graduation from Massey University. She is a friendly, thorough, client-focused practitioner. She has proven to be a great asset to the team and has quickly become a firm favourite with many clients and their pets. Michelle recently completed her Masters of Veterinary Medicine and clinically has a particular interest in dermatology, internal medicine and canine behaviour. Outside of work, Michelle enjoys playing the piano, attempting pilates and exploring the beautiful local beaches with her husband Lucas, new daughter and golden retriever, Lily. Following her return from maternity leave, Michelle has taken on the role of clinical lead veterinarian.

Dr Alistair Newbould

BVM&S, MVM MANZCVS (Small Animal Radiology)

Veterinarian
 
Alistair is a graduate of Edinburgh University Veterinary School, emigrating to New Zealand in 1985. He is the practice founder and principal. His clinical interests include imaging (radiography and ultrasound), cardiology and surgery. Outside of work two of his main passions are motorcycling and skiing. It is with very great pleasure we announce that Alistair has successfully passed the required membership examinations (written, oral and practical) to gain membership of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in Small Animal Radiology. He has prepared and studied for these rigorous examinations in addition to his normal long working hours. We are all very proud of his achievements.

Dr Kristin Townsend

Veterinarian

Dr Kristin Townsend holds a Bachelor of Veterinary Science from Massey University, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science from the University of Auckland. Since graduation she has tended predominately companion animals including cats, dogs, pocket pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and mice, and birds and turtles but has seen the odd sheep or horse here and there. She really enjoys getting to know her patients and their families, providing preventative healthcare such as annual visits and dental health care, and also has a strong interest in soft tissue surgery. When not at work she is kept busy parenting two great kids and tending to the collection of other animals she is responsible for. Getting out into nature is a favourite way to unwind, so she is glad to call Otago home and can’t imagine being anywhere else.
