Wanted: Small Animal Veterinarian

Do you like wine? and snow? and Taco Bell? Then this job could be the one for you!

We’ve researched all the buzz words for hiring someone and these are the ones we require from you.

Dedicated, friendly, motivated, friendly, skilled, friendly, enthusiastic, friendly, good communicator, friendly, easy-going, friendly, organised, friendly.

Our BuildingWe’d love someone who is driven to build rapport with clients and staff. Who can apply the knowledge and skill they have, and is open to learning what they have not yet learnt.

We also require someone who eagerly participates in Secret Santa. This is not negotiable. At all.

What we have to offer.

We’re kinda unique in that we are open 7 days a week (Sat and Sun being our emergency only days). The rest of the week being a melting pot of routine surgeries/consults, vaccinations and the occasional ex lap because a Labrador inhaled a tampon.

Our facility.

Situated on the main throughfare in Orange, in a leafy street (there’s a tree outside), our practice is a converted federation building with three spacious consult rooms, hugeDog Exam staffroom, large reception area, admin office, lab, separate cat and dog wards, x-ray room, dental room, surgery room, large treatment room and a toilet with a door that mostly works.

We have most of the mod cons and some cons that were once mod. We have a lab kitted out with the fanciest of diagnostic machines for your blood analysing pleasure. The latest and greatest in x-ray/US technology and endoscopic technology, im3 unit plus radiography and a label printer that tries its best and means well.
