Cath Picard

Companion Animal Veterinarian

Cath graduated from Massey University in 2000 and started her vet career in a mixed practice in Putaruru. After 3 years she decided that her main area of interest was small animal medicine and surgery, and headed to Auckland for 8 months to work as a locum before moving down south to Christchurch for a short time. In 2004 Cath started in Thames and she has worked with us ever since, doing solely small animal work. Cath loves the varied workload we see in our small animal clinic. Cath and her husband Ross live in Thames with their blue tabby Birman cat Ari. In her spare time Cath enjoys spin classes at the gym, road cycling, wake boarding, church activities and indulging in good coffee.
