RXVET offers vet practices an exclusive range of medicines for the treatment of Companion Animals
RXVET offers veterinarians an exclusive range of products for the treatment of dogs, cats and horses. We work closely with veterinary practices across the country, ensuring they have access to highly effective products with a proven track record. Founded by an experienced veterinarian and a veterinary pharmaceuticals executive who have a real passion for the New Zealand veterinary industry. RXVET's goal is to ensure that you have a partner you can rely on to bring you the very best products and information to support your prescribing decisions. In late 2017 the company became part of the Dechra group, giving the company strong international links which will ensure that RXVET will continue to bring quality products to market. Both founders have remained with RXVET and have strong ties to the industry and its inner workings through Peter Blaikie's role within the NZVA and Nick Gorman as a clinic director.
