Job Details

The Role

We are looking for an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon with confidence in general surgery and medicine to join our single site practice. You will enjoy consulting and working up cases, and also value developing good client relationships. We have a great reputation locally for providing excellent care and treating our patients as if they were our own pets and we are looking for somebody with a similar approach to join our team. We offer a four day (10 hours per day) working week with a full day off each week and a 1 in 4 Saturday morning surgery. Saturday mornings finish at 1.30pm but there will be occasions where patients admitted during the morning need extra care which will mean staying later. There is no OOH. Part-time hours could be considered for the right candidate.
