Animals Fiji

Clinical work in Nadi with outreach campaigns to remote locations

Animals Fiji headquarters is based in Nadi. They have 4 veterinary clinics (Nadi, Savusavu, Lautoka and Labasa) and also operate frequent outreach campaigns covering the Northern and Western regions of the Fiji Islands.

Outreach campaigns are vital in providing primary veterinary care and desexing services to remote communities/islands who do not have access to veterinary services for their pets.

Volunteers veterinarians will be required to travel to Suva to register to practice as a veterinarian in Fiji. Our partner will assist with the arrangements.

  • Assistance with in-country veterinary registration
