A team of vets will soon be on its way to help animals injured in Tuesday's earthquake.

Massey University's new veterinary emergency response team, which has been on standby since Tuesday, is set to travel to Christchurch on Sunday.

Team leader Hayley Squance says there are no major animal emergencies there but the team expects to go door-to-door checking for animals that need help.
