A once in a lifetime opportunity exists to purchase a purpose built small animal veterinary hospital located approximately 12 kilometres NW of Melbourne’s GPO. The practice owner is retiring if, and only if, he can find the right person/s to take over this superb hospital grade facility along with a fair and reasonable price.

The practice comprises a large waiting room/reception/food display area, 2 consultation rooms, a staff-room, lab/pharmacy with binocular microscope and X-Ray film labelling camera, massive treatment room with 2 built in stainless steel peninsula work tables, a 3 phase high frequency CMP200 X-Ray unit with 50kW, 120kVp generator and a central sterile supply with a brand new Melag S23+ autoclave, separate darkroom with a Konika automatic film processor, a separate sterile operating theatre with ceiling mounted Chromophare C-450 operating light and Valleylab SSE2L electrosurgical device, a separate kennel/cattery room with stainless steel cages and a storeroom/isolation room. The practice has extensive instrumentation in near new condition including recently purchase Keller operating loupes. The practice is fully computerised with newly purchased computers (x3) operating with VetWare software on Windows 10. We have 2 hospital grade anaesthetic machines in perfect condition that are regularly serviced each year. The practice is modern, well maintained and looks great!

The practice was established in 1986 and has been run by the same owner for the last 33 years, principally as a solo practice but sometimes as a 2 vet practice. The practice is modern, well equipped and superbly located on a corner location on busy Milleara Road. Milleara Road carries over 20,000 vehicles per day (total in both directions). Along with its prominent signage it offers outstanding visibility. The building is of solid brick construction and has an adjoining car park with 10 visitor carpark spaces/1 private carpark space and landscaped gardens with an automatic sprinkler system. The practice site is a consolidation of 2 blocks giving 1,397m2 of land. We have superb nursing staff of 2 full time nurses and 2 casual vet nurses, equivalent to 2.5 full time vet nurse equivalents.

The practice offers a great opportunity for future growth as the area is having a significant population boom with new apartments being constructed on an ongoing basis. Also, the practice has been run in a relaxed manner over the last 20 years – no after hours, closed for 3 weeks annual leave every year, closed on Sundays/Public Holidays and early weekday closing times around 6:30pm. Thus, there is much opportunity for someone wanting to work this hospital to its full potential and reap the rewards of significant growth.

Please view our website at and view our photos inside and out to fully appreciate this facility. The actual website (above) rather than the google site has the best most informative pictures.

The practice is being sold as an on-going concern and includes all the real-estate (land and building), equipment, office furniture, stock and goodwill. This facility will only be sold as an on-going concern and would involve a significant outlay given it is being sold with a very large land holding. The real-estate cost would be the major outlay here.

Genuinely interested parties should contact Phillip Hartney directly by email only at for more information. I have a professional equipment valuation, estimate of the value of the office equipment, estimate of real-estate value and an asking price for goodwill for negotiation purposes.

Come join our team; we are passionate about what we do and the quality of service that we provide whilst still not forgetting to add fun to the mix. Every day is different, and we are fortunate that we have opportunities to see such a wide and varied array of animals as well as interesting and challenging medical and surgical cases which we will often follow though, referring only minimally.

Our work is mostly (85-90%) small animal with the remainder being an interesting mixture of cattle, horses, sheep, goats, pigs, exotics and wildlife work. We have four clinics within the Riverland Region with a well equipped state of the art hospital in Berri (providing 24 hour emergency care) and three additional clinics located in Renmark, Loxton and Waikerie. We also service a remote Mallee town once a month to assist local communities.

Recreational activities in the area are many and varied including organised sport, visiting wineries, arts, water-skiing, camping and generally enjoying the beautiful country environment. The Riverland is a great place to live and visit. For more information on the area please check out

We have dedicated cat and dog wards (including both cages and runs), separate surgery rooms for clean and sterile surgery and a large and spacious treatment area.

Our ideal candidates would be Experienced Mixed Practice Veterinarians –partnership opportunities can be discussed if desired. You would be experienced professionally, have leadership qualities and a keenness to help mentor and support less experienced team members. Competent recent graduates are welcome to apply also. You must be capable of large animal work.

The role is full time with 4 weeks annual leave and an additional one week conference leave with conferences, travel and accommodation generally also paid for after 12 months of full time employment. Flexible work hours can also be negotiated. After hours on call is currently shared equally between 5 vets, with 2 days off after a weekend on call. Nurses are rostered to be available and take the on-call telephone as extra assistance afterhours. On-call remuneration is generous.

Our clinic looks for personal fulfillment, adventure and to “Save the World”. We have held homeless vaccination and health check drives in our community, provide assistance for victims of domestic violence with their pets during times of emergency and hold community cat desexing programs monthly. Seeking adventure in our role and lives is something that our clinic owner lives and embraces and he has over a number of years sent staff to Nepal, Leh (remote India) and the Cook Islands. We have worked with Beyond Borders and individual clinics to arrange these trips.

Are you considering buying a practice in a regional city but worried about taking the leap?

What if you could work in a practice for a few months while you decide if the practice and the town will suit you, and then after 3 months, commit to buy the practice at any time that suits you in the next 2 years? In the meantime you would take over the management, establish a relationship with the staff and the clientele, and mould the practice to your liking, all the while enjoying a secure income. Any initial decrease in practice income resulting from a change of management would not affect you.

I am ready to sell my practice. My unique circumstances allow me to offer the above arrangement. However I am ready to sell immediately.

The position would require someone with at least 2 years’ experience, interested in practice management. Salary $120,000.00 includes compulsory superannuation and after hours. Four day week, 8.30am to 5.30pm, every 3rd Saturday morning, and one weekend in 6 on call, 1 night a week on call. 1 week study leave and 4 weeks annual leave.

I am confident that with the right motivation and promotion this single vet practice can easily expand rapidly. The practice premises are located right in the centre of Bathurst, NSW.

Bathurst is a lovely city, with great schools and Charles Sturt University. With a population of over 42,000 and growth of around 4% annually, this is a great place for a progressive and enthusiastic veterinary team.

The practice can either be run as a small animal clinic, or mixed. There is fantastic opportunity to expand the large animal component, with abundant cattle and horse work available.

Bathurst has both a galloping and trotting tracks, and horse studs. An equine experienced vet will have the opportunity to expand this component of the clinic very quickly.

Current owner wants lifestyle change but is more than willing to help the new owner settle in and be introduced to the expanding client base.

The business premises can be purchased or leased as part of the sale. The extensive equipment available, can also be purchased, if required.

If after reading this, you are interested, please contact me. I 100% guarantee that after talking to me you will be convinced of the enormous potential you have available.
