Job Details


Anton Vets is a thriving and proudly independent practice with an outstanding reputation for excellence in our community here in Andover.  Our success has been built on an ethos of treating each client and pet as an individual and with the same care and respect that we would treat our own pets. This can be harder work than fitting each case into a protocol, but we believe (and our clients seem to value), that this is the best approach.

We have a busy and varied caseload, which means we work hard giving our clients and patients our very best, and that includes providing our own OOH care. However we love the job satisfaction derived from doing things well and building long lasting relationships.

At Anton Vets you’ll find a large experienced core team of 10 vets and 16 RVNs, and we provide training for SVNs and new graduate vets as we have skills that are worth passing on.

Our newly expanded clinic features a large operating theatre, CT scanner, ultrasound, radiography, endoscopy, microsurgery, radio surgery as well as separate cat, dog, small animal and exotic wards.

Andover offers a beautiful rural location to work and live as well as having easy access to the M3 motorway which means we are just an hour from London, and the beautiful South Coast beaches are within easy reach too.

We offer all that’s best about independent practices and are unique in our community, so you’ll be involved in exciting work. Each and every month we’re improving our services which make a real difference in our ability to offer the very best in pet healthcare.

We are looking for a veterinary surgeon who mirrors the exceptionally high standards that we currently set for ourselves. To be seriously considered for this role you will have the following in regard to:

•    Experience: At least 2 years experience in a similar role
•    Skills:  Confident with routine procedures and surgeries and able to take on more complex cases with support
•    Characteristics: You should be self-sufficient and self-motivated with a positive attitude, a willingness to learn and become a key part of our core team sharing our practice values
You will work a 4½ day week, with a rotation of early Friday finishes. We operate a 1:4 OOH rota, mainly supporting our on-site interns.

At Anton Vets we ask a lot of our colleagues, which is why we give you so much in return. In addition to your excellent salary, we encourage CPD and further study and don’t set a limit on this. We happily fund BSAVA, RCVS and VDS memberships.

We look after our colleagues and as such we have a high retention of staff with some of our key team members having worked for us for many years.
