The practice has a very diverse caseload including pets, dairy, beef and a smattering of equine, wildlife and everything else on the Noah’s Ark spectrum. A wide range of small animal surgeries are undertaken for clients who decline referral to a specialist, while bovine work includes outreach trips into the Victorian High Country.  If you want a chance to put into practice ALL your vet skills, and are always ready for something new, you will thrive in this practice.

The premises are owned by the current practice owner  who can provide a long term lease, or alternatively premises can be sold with the practice.

The Location

Orbost is on the National Highway 1, 4.5 hours east of Melbourne and 4 hours south of Canberra. It is on the Snowy River Floodplain, a virtual island of superfertile farming land, surrounded by forest to the west, north and east, and the ocean to the south. The small coastal town of Marlo is 10 minutes drive away. For anyone who loves an outdoor lifestyle, it is an incredible place to live with an extraordinary range of landscapes close by.

Orbost is a welcoming community with an increasingly diverse population as this largely unknown gem is gradually discovered by tree – and sea changers. The town has it’s own hospital, high school and several primary schools; it is well connected to Melbourne by coach / train services and has many sporting clubs and associations. The current ‘undiscovered’ status of the area means house and land real estate is very competitively priced.

The owner

The current owner is looking to semi retire while staying in the area, after living here for the past 20 years and raising a family. He is open to negotiation to remaining as a part -time or casual employee if desired to enable the lifestyle enhancer of a 3rd vet available to the practice without needing to employ 3 vets full time.

Is practicing veterinary medicine just a part of your life? 
Tired of the urban rat-race?
Want an outdoor lifestyle? 
Ever considered emigrating to Canada?

The location: 

The practice is located on an acreage on the west shore of Kootenay Lake, nine km north of the village of Kaslo, nestled in the mountain ranges of southeastern British Columbia, Canada.  The geography is dominated by the large, pristine lake and 2000-3000m heavily forested mountains.  The area is relatively sparsely populated, and is becoming a haven for urban refugees. 

The village of Kaslo has a health centre with 4 physicians, a K-12 school, an ice arena, tennis courts and baseball diamond.  A vibrant arts community thrives, with a renowned summer jazz festival on a floating stage.

The real estate:

The practice is located in the bottom floor of a 3 storey, 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom  3600 sq ft home built in 1994.  A covered breezeway containing a hot tub and storage adjoins the house to an 800 sq ft shop with a kennel building underneath. A 1000 sq ft barn with hayloft is situated in the adjacent fenced pasture land.  The buildings are located on a 3-4 hectare parcel of land overlooking a  secluded beach on Kootenay Lake.

The practice: 

Established for 26 years, the practice serves the north end of Kootenay Lake, with the next closest practice 75 km to the south.  The practice is 95% small animal with some potential for expanded equine work in the area.  The clinic has separate bathroom, reception, exam, kennel, treatment, and surgery rooms.  Gas anaesthesia, monitors, new CBC and chemistry analyzers,and an older X-ray unit are in use.  Grooming and boarding facilities are present.  The clientele is loyal and appreciative.  Cases requiring referral can be sent to Washington State University vet teaching hospital across the border.  Two part-time assistants and a family member are currently employed.  Annual gross revenue is in the $600,000 range with a high net due to low overhead costs.

The opportunity: 

The home-based practice provides flexibility in time management, allowing a great work/life balance.  It would enable the prospective new owner to continue working while raising a family and allow the veterinary practice to be a family affair.  The area offers unparalleled and unrestricted access to outdoor recreation, with hiking, mountain biking, ATV’ing, swimming and boating in the summer and skiing, skating and snowmobiling in the winter. The current owner is planning to retire in the area and is willing to assist in the transition. The priority is to ensure that the community has continued access to veterinary services, so sale of the practice with inventory and equipment without the real estate would also be considered.

Full or Part Time
Preferably mixed animal vet but small animal vet considered

Clarence Valley Vet Clinic is looking for a 3rd vet to join our team. We will even consider taking on 2 new graduates if a suitable experienced vet can't be found, so you could potentially bring a friend from uni and start your careers together.

We are located in Grafton in the sunny Northern Rivers of NSW. Grafton is on the banks of the mighty Clarence River, which is ideal for kayaking, water-skiing, sailing etc (we can supply kayaks and a ski boat if you are keen to hit the water). There are numerous beaches from Yamba to Coffs Harbour within an hour's drive, and picturesque mountain National Parks and white-water rivers within an hour's drive to the west.

Ideally, we are seeking a vet who will be happy with a mainly small animal workload, but willing to undertake some large animal work when required. A small animal only vet would be considered.

After hours would be 1 weekend in 3 (Clinic open Saturday mornings only on weekends), and one weeknight per week. Rostered days off after a weekend worked will be possible, days worked per week can be flexible anywhere from 3 to 5 days per week.

some of the challenges of business management for the corresponding financial reward.
