We at Lloyd & Cowan are pleased to be working closely with a practice who are looking for a full-time permanent Veterinary Surgeon (though they would consider part-time) who is keen to work up cases with good case continuity and support as required, provides excellent client care, and has good communication skills. ​


4 days of work for full-time (9am-6.30pm) plus a share in Saturday rota (currently 1 in 4) and a share in the weekend and evening in-patient rota.

The salary for this role is up to £60,000 dependent on experience + up to £5,000 relocation bonus + benefits including Private Medical Insurance.


This practice is a 100% small animal veterinary surgery. They have a varied workload that ranges from the standard (e.g. vaccinations, microchipping, neutering, dentals, in-house laboratory, X-ray interpretation pet passports, pregnancy diagnosis with ultrasound, hip and elbow scoring, PAT dog assessments), to more specialist services and treatments, such as chemotherapy, echocardiograms, ECG, video endoscope and bronchoscope for non-invasive investigations and advanced surgeries.

They consider CPD an essential part of a veterinary surgeon's role and have an extensive library of books and journals within a quiet spacious office. They are located in beautiful Anglesey just 5 minutes from the beach and a 45 minute’ drive from the Snowdonia Mountains.

They are looking for a veterinary surgeon who is in good standing with the RCVS and comfortable with routine consults and routine neutering and dental surgery.

The candidate should have excellent communication skills, should be able to write clear and concise clinical notes, should be computer literate, committed to collegiality and should have good time management skills.

The individual should be proactive in their learning and keen to develop their knowledge and practical and intellectual skills through CPD.

Given their location near the beach and in short driving distance to the Snowdonia Mountain range, this position might be particularly interesting to candidates with an interest in water sports, rock climbing, hiking, riding, etc.
