Steve Alderson BVSc - Director/Veterinary Surgeon


Hi I’m Steve Alderson and I am a director/veterinarian at Bayfair & Papamoa Vets.  I am mostly based at Bayfair Vets but sometimes help out at Papamoa Vets.

I graduated from Massey University in 1984 and I have been involved with small animal practice ever since.  I started out in a practice in South Auckland but eventually saw the light and headed to the wonderful Bay Of Plenty.

I enjoy all aspects of veterinary practice but I find it especially rewarding helping our patients with challenging medical or eye problems.

I am also passionate about the continuing education and professional development of our vets and nursing staff.  Highly trained, enthusiastic, vets and nurses at Bayfair & Papamoa Vets will provide your precious pets with the best possible up to date care.  

My fur family includes a very handsome Bearded Collie called Barry and three cool cats called Sunney, Leo and Doctor.

Barry's main hobbies include playing in the surf, eating dead fish and fetching his frisbee. The cats enjoy lazing about and finding the most comfortable sunny spot in the house.

Outside of work I am a keen tramper.  I also enjoy photography, music and fishing.
