Here at Lloyd & Cowan we are delighted to be working with a practice who are seeking for a dedicated Veterinary Surgeon to join their busy team!


The candidate will be responsible for ensuring that every patient is offered excellent health care and advice, alongside gold standard client care.

You will be responsible for ensuring excellent communication, both within the team and with pet owners, and for completing day to day clinical admin, such as repeat prescriptions.

Saturdays are consultations only, except for emergency surgery and they do not book any routine appointments so that you have plenty of time to offer a weekend service to the patients that need it most.

You will be supported by a nurse, a receptionist, and an animal care assistant during these shifts.

They are looking for two, full-time veterinary surgeons, working 40 hours across 3.5 days per week, however, they are considering part-time applicants and are happy to discuss the best working pattern for you! There are no out of hours duties, and only 1 in 4 Saturday mornings.

The salary for this role is up to £55,000 depending on experience.


The practice play a huge part in their community, so much so that they are expanding their veterinary surgeon team to ensure that they can continue to offer excellent patient care, as well as an excellent work-life balance for their team. Their fantastic practice has had a significant upgrade in equipment, including brand new drip pumps, syringe drivers, multi-parameter monitors, doppler blood pressure machines, a Tonovet Plus and a brand-new ultrasound machine. They are also investing in dental radiography later in the year, to ensure that they can provide gold standard dental care to their patients at both branches. Their other facilities include digital radiography, IDEXX blood machines and microscopy at both branches also.


This practice is a two-branch, first-opinion, small animal practice, with a well-established client base in Holywell and Prestatyn. They are based just a 30-minute drive to Chester, with excellent train links to Liverpool, Manchester, London and North Wales. Prestatyn is only 15 minutes down the road from our Holywell branch, in a beautiful seaside town. There is so much to do locally, from watersports on beautiful lakes, shopping at Cheshire Oaks or climbing Snowdon at the weekend.

What they require from the candidate:

Their ideal candidate will have experience working within a first opinion practice and be confident in working in sole charge. A certificate or an interest in completing a certificate is desired, but not essential.  You will have excellent written and spoken communication skills, and a motivation to provide high standards of care.
