All the usual facilities are available, also including dental radiography, ultrasound (being upgraded to include cardiac probes), rigid/flexible endoscope, and laboratory and laser facilities. We even have a qualified Animal Physiotherapist on staff. We aim to provide a caring service to our clients and their pets, while offering the best in care and the newest treatments.

Applicant Requirements
This role is ideally suited to a vet with some post graduate experience who is confident with routine surgery and 1st opinion medicine, however a good support network is provided by our senior vets for a strong recent graduate.
