Do you look forward to the next vaccination? Scared of a GDV? Freak out when you get a blocked cat with K+>10? Enjoy being another cog in the machine? If so, this is possibly not the job for you!! On the other hand if you get a little thrill when thinking about the next interesting tough case you will see. If you like handing your cases over to the specialist who will manage them during the day and having a chat. You want to enjoy coming to work. If you understand that pets come with owners AND regular vets and on occasion we need to talk to them!. Well then, we might have something that will interest you!
The growing team at Eastside Veterinary Emergency & Specialists are looking for some more friends! We started out as an Emergency and Critical Care after hours centre and have recently expanded into offering internal medicine and surgical specialist referral services to the local area.

The area is lovely with clients that are motivated and able to allow us to provide a high level of care to their pets. The feedback with get from our clients is outstanding and we would like to keep it that way!

Our ideal is a clinician with emergency experience or a strong interest in medicine, though we are able to provide back-up for a smart and motivated vet with a solid clinical background and a winning smile. We are looking for someone to take some pressure off the practice manager so he can have time to write more ads like these and the odd protocol instead of typing them between a consult and an ultrasound. Hours wise you would be able to do an evening a week and at least 1 weekend a month.
