Becks Smith
Veterinarian
Becks joined the Central Vets team in late 2009 as a new graduate veterinarian.  Having spent her childhood in the North Island, Papua New Guinea and Dunedin she is quick to embrace new communities.  This has definitely been the case in Ranfurly where she has taken all opportunities to partake in rural life.  In her spare time Becks enjoys a wide range of sporting activities (especially skiing), socializing with friends, Young Farmers Club and training any working pups that come her way!!  Becks lives with her partner Jason and has Colin the cat and Mint the Dog keeping her busy when not at work or sporting.

David Dodd
David Dodd
Veterinarian
Dave is our senior vet and apart from an initial 18 months in Hokitika has spent all his working life in Ranfurly. Dave lives with Kate on a 150 acre lifestyle block that occupies his time.  Being the sole vet for most for most of this time, spare time has been precious, but he is obsessive about quail hunting with his G.W.P’s.  When quail are not allowed, ducks, geese and trout are the targets.

Ellen Eyre
Ellen-Eyre
Veterinarian

Ellen joined the VetEnt Otorohanga team at the end of 2014 after graduating with a BVSc from The University of Queensland. After growing up in Australia, she has decided that New Zealand is a pretty fantastic place to call home, and lives on a Dairy Farm in Te Awamutu with her husband Brad and daughter Harriet. Ellen currently works part time, and has decided to transition into predominately large animals. With a passion for the outdoors, Ellen loves being out on farm and relishes the opportunity to add value to our clients business. Outside of work, Ellen is acclimatising to life as a mum and can often be found helping out around the farm in between trips across the Tasman to visit family and friends.
