March 27, 2014

Nigel is a graduate of Massey University and has been in clinical practice since 1980. He began his career with a varied role in mixed practice in Kaitaia. Following a variety of international roles, Nigel moved to Matamata Veterinary Services in 1988 to focus on building the level of small animal service and care the practice offered. Nigel became a Director of MVS in 1991. He has been a board member of Vetlearn and the NZVA Companion Animal Society. His clinical interests are directed towards internal medicine, imaging and dermatology. He is constantly striving for excellence in client service and patient care at MVS Small Animals and is justifiably proud of the clinics achievements.


After 26 years at Matamata Veterinary Services Nigel Kittow is packing his bags and heading abroad for some new adventures over the seas.

Nigel started with MVS in 1988, coming to Matamata with his wife Dorte.  They have brought up their 3 children in Matamata and have given immensely to the community.

While he has always been involved in small animal practice Nigel has been involved in dairy, equine, deer, and goat sectors.  His focus became small animal veterinary work and he has developed the small animal team to what we now know, including 4 vets and 4 nurses.

Nigel has a huge personality and has formed many relationships that are bound to follow him in his travels. We are all very sad to see him go but also understand that this is a natural progression for Nigel with his enthusiasm for life and a passion for adventure.
