What We Do
100% New Zealand owned, Pacificvet are market leaders in the supply of vaccines and veterinary immunology products to the poultry industries in New Zealand and the South Pacific. Our primary objective is to provide advice, technical support and education in the use of immunological veterinary products.
We supply a wide range of sophisticated biological products, from basic programmes of immunisation that are custom-designed for New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, to diagnostic tools for epidemiological studies and quality control programmes.
Since 1993, Pacificvet has maintained a Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) approved Containment and Transitional Facility to import and stock biological material for the diverse epidemiological needs of the Pacific Islands. The compliance in this strict government-assisted system protects the New Zealand environment (which is free of diseases such as Newcastle Disease and Infectious Bursal Disease) and ensures that products exported to the Pacific Islands originate from a biologically safe environment.
Pacificvet supports research into New Zealand specific immunological solutions at Lincoln University, Massey University and collaborates with local laboratories and other research groups. We are backed by a strong international team of leading animal health companies, such as Zoetis, Lohmann Animal Health and Ceva Animal Health.
Pacificvet maintains an education programme on the principles of vaccination as a key element of good stockmanship. As a science-based company with constant emphasis on product stewardship, we keep clients, veterinarians and users informed on the responsible use of vaccines and interpretation of diagnostics. Understanding the rationale behind the use of vaccines is critical to ensure that future decisions on vaccination techniques and programmes are sustainable.
As part of our commitment to wildlife health as a non-profit activity, we have assisted with unique immunisation programmes that help preserve some of New Zealand most precious species. We provide expertise and products to support the Wellington Zoo, Wildbase at Massey University, West Coast Wildlife Centre Franz Josef Glacier, and to the Department of Conservation’s endangered species recovery programmes for the Kiwi, Kakapo, Takahe and Campbell Island Teal.
