Our Team:

Dr Victoria Common
Head Veterinarian

Victoria graduated from Massey University, Palmerston North in 2003. She previously worked in the King Country and Hawkes Bay in mixed practice. Joining the Carevets team in 2019, Victoria has a special interest in Small Animal Medicine and Healthcare. Victoria enjoys the pleasures of living on a lifestyle block fondly referred to as the “hobby farm” with her 2 children and Harold the cat who rules the roost. This means outside hours are spent enjoying homelife with her family, reading, walks and keeping active as well as the “odd Gin” at sunset.

Dr June Muyao Li

June graduated from China in 2015 with a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and four years later, finished her Masters Degree of Veterinary Medicine in Taiwan. She came to New Zealand in March 2022 and has worked as a Veterinary Nurse while exploring our beautiful country. Luckily, she joined the CareVets team and finally started her Veterinary career – hooray! June has a Formosan dog that she adopted from Taiwan and together they have conquered many tramping trails and the list is growing.

Dr Kate Holland
BSc BVSc (dist) MACVSc

Kate qualified as a Veterinarian in 1996. She has a passion for all cat and dog medicine and soft tissue surgery, with a strong leaning toward preventative veterinary care. Kate enjoys the fun team atmosphere at CareVets Napier and working in her most organised clinic to date! She lives rurally with her beef farmer husband, 2 daughters and a menagerie of animals. When not in the clinic, Kate can be found around Hawkes Bay with her daughters equestrian pursuits, or at home with a good book. She loves spending special extended family time in Queen Charlotte Sound, Marlborough.

Clinic Coordinator
Retail / Receptionist

Annie joined the CareVets team in 2020 taking on the role for Reception and Retail. More recently she has started her studies to become a Veterinary Nurse. Any spare hours she has are enjoyed spending time with her horse Hugo, going to Crossfit and exploring the beautiful Hawkes Bay with friends.
