VETERINARY NURSE - Adelaide - Small Animals

Magill Village Vet – NEW HOSPITAL

Demolition is about to begin and then we will actually see our new hospital emerge from the rubble.

The original Magill Police Station is being renovated and extended and will transform into the new and exciting Magill Village Vet.

With separate spaces for Cat World (which includes 3 consulting rooms, a hospital ward and a treatment room) and Dog World (4 consulting rooms), we are taking caring for cats to the next level.

Some of the cool features we have incorporated into the new hospital:

The hospital will meet ASAV Hospital Standards and ISFM Gold Cat Friendly Standards.

We are recruiting additional team members who would like to join us now in anticipation of moving into the new hospital - full time or part time.

If you love working with cats – this is the place for you. Dr Jenni Trewren will be leading the team of feline fanatics. We have big plans for the old police cells which will improve the care that we can provide for cats.

Sumo has requested that any new team members treat her as the queen that she is – she is actually in charge! Our two clinic cats, Sumo and her offsider Freckle, are very important members of our team. They are looking forward to moving into the new hospital and checking out all the cat friendly features which have been incorporated into the design.

Be warned - Sumo and Freckle will be on the interview panel so you will need to pass the “cat scan” to be considered for this position.

There is no point in writing an essay (or a novel!) - if you would like to find out more, please email Kerin Aspinall –

Keep an eye open for our new website - will be launched soon and give regular building updates.
