​We are looking recent graduates or experienced veteriniarians to join this clinic on the Coastal area of Tasmania.

The clinic is 90% large animal, 10% small animal and you will be working a 9-day fortnight.

The animals are predominantly cattle (dairy 75%, beef 5%) and small animals (20%) with the occasional sheep, goat, horse and wildlife seen as well. The dairy work includes routine farm visits and emergency work, herd health programs, bull fertility testing, consultancy work (mastitis, reproduction and nutrition), lameness as well as manual and ultrasound pregnancy testing.

There is a supportive team consisting of 9 veterinarians and 3 farm technicianswith a range of veterinary experience. They have a good mix of senior, mid-level and newer graduate veterinarians with most of the vets having worked in the clinic for at least 5 years.

On call is 1: 8 - that means only 4 nights a month! They have a Tele-triage service – so you are not getting disturbed for non- emergencies! You also don’t have to start on-call until you are ready – for most new grads this is usually around the 2-month mark. Once you’ve found your feet don’t worry because ALL vets have a designated backup vet on the weekend and for weeknights there is always another vet willing to help if required!

You will be working from a modern, spacious, purpose-built clinic which includes a whole office level upstairs. With some great toys to make the teams lives easier including two mobile tipper crushes, five portable ultrasounds, bull fertility testing equipment and an in-house blood analyser for large and small animals. The clinic has all the usual small animal equipment including vet-tome (dental game changer!) bone plating gear and digital radiography. They pride themselves in being very active in farmer education through the provision of seminars and courses, and also at a higher industry level with Dairy Australia.


  • Salary is generous for new graduates

  • You will receive paid AVA membership, VSB registration fees, VIN, CVE

  • A decent car, mobile phone and relocation assistance are also part of the package

  • Paid volunteer leave and maternity leave and plenty of other perks

  • New graduates benefit from the Graduate Development Program which offers mentorship, small group support and hands-on workshops.
