About the Veterinary Hospital Group Vets


images-2-150x150The founder of Veterinary Hospital Group is Grant McCullough. After qualifying as a veterinary surgeon in 1986, he spent time working as a newly graduated vet in sunny Hikurangi before embarking on a period of overseas travel. After settling down with a young family in Coatesville, Grant began to focus on small animal veterinary practice.

In 1991, Grant took over sole ownership of Albany Veterinary Hospital and Pet Centre. The success of Albany and the establishment of Silverdale Veterinary Hospital @ Animates in 2004 led the way for Veterinary Hospital Group to be formed.

Vets at the Veterinary Group Hospital Massey Heights Veterinary Hospital became part of the group in late 2007, Parkhill Veterinary Hospital and Boarding Cattery joined in mid-2010, and Hobsonville Vets in August 2013. Recent additions to Veterinary Hospital Group are Hibiscus Coast Veterinary Hospital, Remuera, Peninsula Bay and Dairy Flat

Grant now focuses mainly on the management side of the business but still lends a hand with the more hands-on veterinary work when things get busy.
