The standard full-time vet rota consists of a 45-hour week, working 1 weekend in 4 with a long weekend off in lieu the following week. There is an OOH requirement to work 1 night per week on call, in the winter months and 1 night per week on call every fortnight, in summer months.

Two of their branches have a farm animal crush and pen and they have all the usual equipment in the main branch for both farm and small animal practice including easy scan/small animal ultrasound, laparoscope for farm, IDEXX lab station, microscope, x-ray, endoscope, ECG, kennelling/stabling facilities, small ruminant operating table, and a horse stock.

These 4 Veterinary Surgeons have been with them  for 10 years. They also have a new 2022 graduate lined up to start on their Graduate Academy. They have an enormously dedicated Veterinary Nursing team made up of 3 Registered Veterinary Nurses and 2 Student Veterinary Nurses.

 Applicant Requirements

Their ideal candidate will be a Farm Veterinary Surgeon with some experience (Calving, C-sections, uterine twist, etc) and happy to do some horse work (1st opinion, no PPE, but reproduction knowledge would be beneficial).
