We have a team of four vets with three vets working each day and a large nursing team who provide great support, including assisting in the consult rooms so that vet recommendations are followed through, as well as helping with animal holding, updating records and billing during the consult.

The Opportunity

We have a position available for a vet to join our team, on a full-time or part-time basis. This opportunity is open to experienced vets or recent graduates.
