Albany Veterinary Hospital

416 Albany Highway, Albany, Auckland

The hub from which our group's reputation has grown.

The Albany Veterinary Hospital is the hub of the Veterinary Hospital Group.  It was first started in Library Lane in Albany Village and moved to its current location at 416 Albany Highway in 1994. Dr Grant McCullough has owned the clinic for the whole of its life.

Grant is no longer seen in the clinic doing vet work, but he is seen around the place mowing lawns and doing renovations for all of our group clinics.

Albany has recently undergone some exciting renovations, adding a new consult room, redesigning our reception area and sprucing up our surgery and prep areas.  The staff are very happy with their new shiny clinic and we hope you will enjoy it too.

Albany is very pleased to be able to offer many services to our clients, including Neil’s orthopaedic surgery skills that he shares with the group.

Conveniently located on Albany Highway with ample parking, Albany Veterinary Hospital is a small animal practice ready to cater for any of your animal needs. The team of Vets includes Daniel Lamont, Dr Neil Warnock, Dr Genna Ackroyd and Dr Devon Russell. The nursing and support staff are Karen Huddleston, Sarah Read, Jayde Da Silva, Echo Tan, Jade Haurua, Marion Moneda and Stacey McCarthy.
