New Zealand’s Leading Clinical Suppliers

We’re a close-knit team who pride ourselves on providing our customers with excellent, friendly, knowledgeable – and hassle-free – service.

Our buying power and our investment in the best of people and technology means that you can trust SVS to consistently deliver quality products at great-value prices.

SVS is New Zealand’s leading full service supplier to the veterinary industry. We have been great at wholesaling vet supplies for well over 20 years and we are proud to be family run,

New Zealand owned and operated. 100% Kiwi and proud of it!

Basil Elstob founded the business in 1987, and grew from a small Christchurch-based supplier to the highly competitive nation-wide business we see today. Basil’s son John, who now owns the business, has maintained the family values and down-to-earth origins of the business. “We go the extra mile for our customers – and make sure they are delighted with our service, time and time again”. John insists that great relationships with customers, built over time, an in-depth understanding of the industry, and impeccable service are the success factors for SVS.

“We are the good guys for the industry – we look after our clients and ensure we consistently over-deliver to their expectations”.

Our People

SVS have a nation-wide network of sales representatives who are the everyday face of the company for its customers, experts in the business of providing to veterinary needs. Across all requirements – PARs, OTC medicines, consumables, equipment and instruments as well as animal feed – we provide the best products, always at competitive prices. “We get it there, the right products, the right time, the right place – count on it!” states John. “It’s our good name in the business that we stand behind.”

Working together with the New Zealand Centre for Conservation Medicine we are focussed on assessing the way we do business and are taking practical steps to operate more sustainably.

Using the Four R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Redesign & Recycle we hope to minimise our environmental impact and in doing so encourage others to do the same. Consistent with our down to earth culture at SVS we aim to walk the talk and our approach has been to engage our staff to drive our green initiatives from a grass roots level.
