Veterinary Surgeon – Full or Part Time
About the practice:
They are a 3.5 vet practice with 3 RVN’s, 1 SVN’s, and 2 ANA’s (with one set to become an SVN in September), 5 reception staff and a Practice Manager (RVN). The clinic sees a varied caseload with a high proportion of insured clients. We are exclusively small animals comprising approximately 45% dogs, 40% cats, 10% rabbits, 5% other small furries.
The days are scheduled with 15 minute consults with a catch up/break scheduled every 4-5 consults. Leaving on time is prioritised. The last appointment time is 6:45pm. The clinic closes and phones are switched over at 7pm with 30mins of protected time after for calls/notes. There is also 15-30mins (depending on shift length) of time given in the middle of the day for calls, usually immediately post lunch which is a 1 hour break.
Passionate about high quality care, they have all the usual toys plus dental x-ray, laparoscopy, endoscopy, Kyon TPLO equipment, harmonic scalpel and K-laser. Both JVP’s are highly experienced surgeons. One is a certificate holder, the other is in the final stages of completion. They aim to keep the majority of the caseload in house, but are within 45 minutes of a quality referral hospital if needed. They would be keen to develop a candidate's own interests with certificates encouraged and funded.
