Their bright, air-conditioned surgery is purpose built to industry leading standards and has state of the art equipment including digital x-ray, ECG, Idexx in-house laboratory, ultrasound, dentistry facilities and I-phone/I-pad heart monitor and they are the only practice in Kings Lynn to use Sevoflurane.

What they are looking for:

You'll need strong general medical experience with demonstrable surgical skills and confidence in communicating with owners and their pets. One vet there has a particular interest in exotics so if you want to gain more exposure to exotic cases or have a specialism you're keen to develop, this could be a great opportunity for you!

They are looking for a vet who enjoys being a vet, values a good salary, is interested in engaging in all aspects of veterinary care and enjoys clinical discussions and mentoring all members of the team. An interest in studying for a certificate would be encouraged and funded.
