The Animal Medical Centre is looking for a veterinarian to join our team of 11 full and part time vets in our very busy practice. We are probably the largest companion animal practice in Tasmania, and are proud of the reputation we have throughout the state.

We have great clients who love their animals and in many cases are prepared to do whatever it takes to get their pets back to health.

Our reputation and care for our patients has resulted in our practice growing at a steady rate each year, and we are constantly on the lookout for great people to join our practice. PLEASE READ OUR OTHER ADVERTISEMENT IN KOOKABURRA WHICH LISTS OUR FACILITIES, EQUIPMENT AND THE WONDERFUL TOWN OF LAUNCESTON.

Although our other advertisement is for an experienced surgeon, we are also looking for a general practitioner who has great people skills and is keen to improve their medical and surgical skills. As you will be working with a team of very experienced vets you will have a lot of support and encouragement for you to try new things.

Canberra Veterinary Emergency Service

Do you love the thrill of the crash? Do you love the chance to save lives each shift? Then it is time to cross over to the dark side!

Canberra Veterinary Emergency Service is looking for Casual or Part Time Experienced Veterinarians to join our team of experienced Emergency Veterinarians.

We have a fun, compassionate and motivated team who prioritises the best care for patients and their humans in what can be an emotionally charged atmosphere. We are looking for individuals who can remain calm under pressure and think fast when situations change, including both patients and their owners! The workload can be demanding and there are no set meal (or coffee!) breaks but the thrill of saving lives and truly making a difference is addictive and the rewards of seeing your patient go home make it all worth while.

So if you are the type of person who runs towards a crashing patient rather than away from them, Emergency and Critical Care may be your calling!

Previous experience in emergency and critical care is an advantage but your diagnostic approach, attitude and professionalism is of paramount importance to us. If you do not have experience in emergency and critical care, internal and external continuing education and training will be provided as well as emotional support from a compassionate and experienced team of emergency vets and nurses.

You must be able to multitask and prioritise workflow without becoming stressed. Any shift can contain a combination of consulting, surgery, monitoring and care of hospital and critical care cases.

The ideal candidate will have:

Please only apply if you are happy and able to work overnights, weekends and public holidays on a shared and rotating roster.

Associate Veterinarian

Reference: 4598312

Over the last 10 years we have operated an extensive network of general small animal (and exotics) practices across the country with the total wellbeing of our community's pets firmly in mind. Our successful Complete Care™ and award - winning Health & Wellness range are a couple of our many initiatives demonstrating our passion for preventative medicine benefits and have pets live long, healthy lives with their families.

As we continue to embark on our journey of growth, we have an unwavering commitment to stay true to our values and ethos that have distinguished Our Vet over the years. We now also have an opportunity for a talented Associate Vet to join our warm and engaging team at Tuggeranong.

Each day will bring something new.
Whether a recent graduate or vet with some years' of experience this clinic will offer you invaluable insights and experience in the fundamentals of small animal GP practice, with additional opportunity to treat local exotics (including birds, aquatics, reptiles and "pocket pets"). With each day you will hone your skill in managing consultations, diagnosing conditions and formulating suitable treatment plans, conducting regular procedures and checks (from standard dentals to extractions, vaccinations and microchipping) through to diverse surgeries, all whilst providing suitable options in the interest of preventative medicine.

Across a diverse caseload, within this clinical setting, you will rely on your knowledge and resources to diagnose the condition and consider the best option available. You will consult pet parents, listening and empathising with their unique circumstances and collaboratively deciding on appropriate treatment plans. In a surgical capacity, you will begin with base surgeries and procedures as you skilfully evolve them to intricate cruciate and soft tissue surgeries. You will feel a sense of fulfillment as you witness the difference you are making in the welfare of these pets and the impact on their devoted families, the clinical challenges you resolve and seeing yourself progress to a vet who's repeatedly asked for by name.

Recognised for our structured and comprehensive training programs you will benefit from an comprehensive induction program (teaching you all the essentials in clinic protocols and procedures), an extensive library of certified online training modules (with credits available to meet CE requirements) and personalised development, detailed clinical resources on any subject of interest, invitations to industry events and conferences, and national network of vets across our 27 clinics locations nationwide. Should you be interested, we will extend your accountability and provide specific training to assist your career progression into leadership.

Based in the Best Friends stores, outside your clinic doors is "one of the largest waiting rooms in Australia". You and your clients have immediate access to products, services and the knowledge of our retail and grooming teams ready to help you with information about nutrition, health & well - being range, the latest in pet care products, pre - puppy school and animal behaviour, grooming and skin/coat care. This allows you to focus on your role and rely on the Best Friends team to support you the rest of the way.

Committed to offering work - life balance, you will be rostered ordinary hours, with no on-call or extended hours required. Weekends are rotated across the veterinary team and sole charge days are rostered when you are ready.

The time is now to join a team with an impeccable reputation in veterinary care.
