Adrian De WaalAdrian De Waal
Mixed Animal Veterinarian

I am a recently graduated vet from South Africa. As a student, I mostly enjoyed working with companion animals and in the two years since graduating I have discovered a passion for mixed animal practice. I started trout fishing from a very early age but studied and worked far away from any trout fishing areas, so I am very excited being able to take up this hobby again. I also enjoy jogging and being outdoors, which I hope will be more enjoyable in Pahiatua than in the 30-degree heat of Mafikeng. 




Alex BowesAlex Bowes BVSc
Production Animal Veterinarian

Alex hails from England as has vetted in many countries.  Alex's passion for dairy farming took her to Vietnam with Totally Vets which was an experience and adventure.  Enjoying being part of the TVG team, Alex joined us at Pahiatua in 2016 and has been a hit with farmers and our staff as she shares her focus on infectious disease prevention.  It creates a very interesting conversation.

I graduated from Massey in 2015 and began working in Wanganui for two years. I then moved to Pahiatua in 2017 where I began work as a mixed animal veterinarian. I enjoy meeting new people and their pets and getting out and about on farm and I love the variety that being a mixed animal vet offers.

Klara HussieKlara Hussie
Mixed Animal Veterinarian

Living in Townsville, Australia, the focus of my degree was tropical veterinary practice. However, during my degree I developed a special interest in dairy medicine. There aren’t a lot of dairy medicine jobs going in the dry tropics of Australia, so I’ve come to Pahiatua to learn all about how the Kiwis do dairy. I look forward to meeting you and the Pahiatua community (and trying not to freeze).

A prior Aucklander and 2016 graduate, I worked my first year in the sunny Hawke's Bay as a small animal clinician. Now working as a mixed vet in the mighty Tararua; Eketahuna and Nireha locals will see the shiny TVS Rav going by (always happy to stop in, or drop things off)! I have interest in all species; from cows to cats and everything in between.

Mixed Animal Veterinarian

I graduated in 2017 and have been working with my husband Adrian in Mafikeng, a rural area of South Africa, as a community service mixed practice vet. I love my work and along with Adrian will be based in Pahiatua.  I enjoy being outdoors and am looking forward to exploring New Zealand. I love to bake, read and do crafts. I grew up with a love for animals and I am passionate about working with all types; I can watch a dairy cow for hours and have a soft spot for sheep and goats.

Vet Nurse

I qualified in 2016 with my Diploma in Vet Nursing and started working at Tararua Vets Pahiatua early 2017. I work in the small animal department and have a love for medical nursing. This means I am generally with all of the animals that are admitted into the hospital, medicating, petting them and helping them feel 100% again.
