Job Title: Small Animal Vet

The Company:

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

The practice is a single site in a busy town in Worcestershire, within 1hr of Stratford-upon-Avon, Birmingham, Worcester and the Cotswolds.  

The main case load consists of dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs, but my clients also see a huge variety of exotic mammals, reptiles and birds.

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.

15 minute consults allow them to spend more time with their clients, focusing on quality rather than quantity.  

They encourage their vets to work cases up to a high standard, allowing clinical and professional freedom.

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

They have a range of diagnostic equipment, Digital x-ray, ultrasound, endoscopes, fully equipped laboratory, blood pressure monitor and various other smaller pieces of equipment. They have infusion pumps to support their hospitalised animals and two fully equipped dental machines.

Have separate cat, dog and exotics wards. There are two spacious theatres for operating and three good sized consulting rooms.

They have an amazing long-serving, hardworking team of nurses and receptionist who are friendly, helpful and well accomplished. There is always a friendly face or a spare hand to help out. They also have a regular visiting ophthalmologist.
