Western Equine Veterinary Services are seeking a part time and/or full time veterinarian to join our team in the western suburbs of Melbourne.

Part time applicants are desired to work 2 days per week and are welcome to start as soon as available.  Full time applicants would ideally start by spring, however we are happy to wait longer for the right candidate.   

We are a predominantly equine ambulatory practice servicing Melbourne’s west for over 50 years. We have a varied case load including racetrack practice, polo, pleasure and performance horse care, reproduction and occasional hobby farm and small animal care.  Our primary base is within a small animal clinic in Werribee (Hoppers Crossing).  From here we service an approximate 50km radius W/NW/SW of us– limited to areas we can realistically care for without burning out.  We also have a purpose built facility on 3 acres in Werribee South, near the Werribee Park Equestrian Centre, where we offer limited in patient facilities and reproductive services.

Please click here to see photos! photos

We have all the necessary equipment for elite level ambulatory equine practice – including wireless digital xray, K-Laser PMBT, ultrasound, endoscope, power dental floats, etc.  We also use modern, user friendly, cloud based practice management software - ezyvet.  If specialised diagnostics and/or treatment is required we work very closely with the University of Melbourne Equine Centre, located just 2km from our office.  We also receive referrals back from the hospital to our Werribee South facilities for post surgical rehab and on going case management of elite and much loved horses. 

We offer a rare lifestyle balance – unique in many ways.  Being located just 25 minutes drive from the Melbourne cbd we have the advantage of being able to live in the city’s inner suburbs (and reap all the cultural/lifestyle benefits of this) whilst escaping the city to do our work.  We pride ourselves on managing client expectations and selecting the work we do carefully to not put unachievable/unsustainable expectations on our staff.  We also offer regular rdo’s, or a set 4 day work week, to ensure our staff have plenty of down time.

Ideal applicants should have a strong background with large animals (not necessarily just equine).  We favour vibrant personalities and exceptional communication skills over impressive academic credentials.  Applicants should be eligible for registration by the Victorian Veterinary Practitioners Registration Board and be a current Australian resident/visa holder. 

Further information can be found on our web site www.wevs.com.au

If interested please forward your CV to Dr Nicholas Robson at info@wevs.com.au or phone 0418 385 223.

Golden Plains Equine (GPE) located in Lethbridge Victoria is a 5 veterinary equine practice. We are looking for a 6th equine veterinarian due to substantial business growth.

GPE practices state of the art surgery, medicine and reproduction. The case load includes a wide variety of horses from Clydesdales to miniature ponies, racing industry, sport and pleasure horses and everything in between. Our facility is one of the largest in Victoria comprising a modern hospital with a stable capacity for 28 horses, isolation and various additional yards and paddocks over 80 acres. Our foaling down facilities are under lights and cameras. We have all the latest equipment you would expect in a first grade equine hospital.

The growing practice is currently performing approximately 30 gas anaesthetics per month (arthroscopies, colics, throat surgery, cryptorchids, fracture repair etc) and at least double that amount of intravenous anaesthetics and standing procedures that are also performed in the hospital (joint flushes, implant removals, stitch ups, geldings, eye surgeries, sequestrums etc). Additionally we perform numerous field anaesthetics. Three surgeons (one on staff and two visiting) with specialty training routinely use the facility, and visiting specialists in other fields (medicine/ophthalmology/reproduction) are welcomed to use the facility.

We have a large reproduction case load that includes artificial insemination (frozen and fresh chilled), embryo-flushes and collection for ET, hysteroscopic procedures, and laparascopic PGE. We service a wide range of studs in the area.  As a consequence of our busy reproductive case load, we also see numerous sick foals, dystocias and associated medicine and surgery cases.

The practice also has a busy ambulatory component and services a large number of clients across South Western Victoria, the Mornington Peninsula and the Central Highlands and Goldfields. The ambulatory work is unique in that the hospital and hospital staff can offer support to vets working in the field. As a result, our clients have become accustom to gold standard service on farm.

We are interested in hiring a passionate equine veterinarian. Our preference would be for someone wanting to move to the area long term and become part of our awesome team. We are very supportive of continuing education, and the practice would be ideal for someone that seeks higher skills within equine practice. Areas that may be of interest include: sport’s medicine including lameness, surgery, medicine, reproduction, anaesthesia, imaging etc.

If you are interested in this position with us, we would very much like to hear from you so that we can discuss the details further. Please contact Dr Stuart Brown on 0474 340 666 or drstuartbrown@me.com
