My clients are a busy, long established, RCVS-accredited, independent small animal veterinary practice.

The practice is has two sites in a lovely idyllic town in Lincolnshire, within 30mins of Peterborough, and 1hr from Cambridge and Nottingham.

The town itself is regularly a finalist in The Times best place to live in Britain survey.

My clients main case load consists of Companion Animals, such as dogs and cats - but occasionally they do get the odd rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, small furries and exotics.

Knowledge and experience of exotic pets is welcomed but not essential. There is plenty of opportunity for support and training to provide ongoing development.

My clients ethos is to provide a high standard of supportive and compassionate care to their clients and their pets.

They have a 24hr hospital unit, so are animals can always be seen by a member of the team.

15 minute consults allow them to spend more time with their clients, focusing on quality rather than quantity.  These can be increased to 30minutes for more serious cases.

They support each other clinically and case discussions are positively encouraged as part of a culture of support and collaboration.

There is always a friendly face or a spare hand to help out.
