We are delighted to be working with a Mixed Veterinary Practice based in a small town in County Limerick. The practice was set up in 2020 and has been growing ever since!


The percentage large versus small animal workload varies with time of year with typically 60% of the caseload being Large animal based in Spring time, while in the Summertime 60% of the workload is small animal based. However this can be tailored to suit a candidate's preferences.

The small animal work is mainly routine first opinion while the large animal work is 90% dairy based. There is practically no equine work involved in this job. Except for springtime, the out of hours work is generally quiet.

The Team:

At present they have a very young, close knit team. With 1 veterinary nurse and 1 groomer who also does reception duties and the owner is also qualified from UCD and has since done a certificate in Herd health. Most of their clients are quite easy going. 

The position would suit experienced or newly qualified vet as good support can be provided.


  • Ideally this will be a Full Time Role, and there is a 1:3 rota with this job.


  • The salary range would be 45 to 55K depending on experience

  • Paid VDS, Vet Council fees

  • Fuel Card Provided

  • Generous Holiday Entitlement
