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. We are very supportive of each other and are very proud of the capabilities of our support staff utilising their skills and interests to improve work fulfilment and better assist our Veterinarians.

We are a mixed country practice, based in the Riverland along the River Murray in South Australia (2.5 hours’ drive from Adelaide). We currently employ 5 full-time and 2 part-time vets and are looking to increase this number. 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

Our hospital facilities include digital xray, a Toshiba ultrasound machine, electrosurgery unit, IDEXX haematology and biochemistry, clotting time readers, PT/aPTT, feline blood typing, excellent anaesthetic monitoring equipment (inc. ECG, PetMap, BP), IV fluid warmers, ventilator, a range of orthopaedic equipment (inc. pins, plates, TTA, ext fix, bone grafts, string of pearl plating system), fluid pumps, Icare Tonovet, IM3 dental machine & Vet-Tome. We have recently added laser therapy with our machine capable of therapeutic ultrasound and tens also. 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. Salary range is $55 to $90k, depending on experience.

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.

We seek to constantly improve; having worked in the past with a Veterinary Practice Coach, and running programs for interested team members doing personal development with Lincoln Institute Emerging Leaders.

St Arnaud Vet Clinic – Urgent Sale

This practice offers bargain-priced entry to profitable business ownership in a centrally located picturesque town with all amenities.

The Practice:

The workload is generally easy paced, with little after hours.

The practice has run as a 1 to 1.5 vet operation over the past few years, open only from 9am to 5pm on weekdays, but this could be easily expanded if desired, as clients have had to be turned away at times, and with other practices in the region reducing their large animal exposure, an increasing potential exists for horse, sheep and (some) cattle work.

The small animal component could also be readily expanded.

Please click here to see photos! photos

The Real Estate:

The premises occupy a large block (1340 sq m) located on a main road only 1km from the post office with plenty of customer parking and undercover staff parking.

The attached flat is currently being partly used for clinic storage and lab work, but still provides comfortable accommodation when required.

The clinic area has new floor coverings and the block has been re-fenced with new Colourbond fencing.

The Location:

St Arnaud is a centrally located historic gold town, population approximately 2,500, in a cropping and sheep grazing zone. One of the most striking features is the undulating and picturesque bush surrounding the town which has an extensive network of well-maintained tracks, ideal for off road cycling or motorcycling.

The area is also home to over half of the state’s species of native birds, along with kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, goannas and even the odd koala. A large variety of native flora including some rare orchids can also be seen growing here.

The moderate climate is conducive to outdoor activities such as walking and cycling.

Sporting facilities include grass tennis courts and an indoor sports stadium with squash courts, as well as a harness racing track and racecourse.

The town also boasts an 18-hole golf course and two bowls clubs.

A sealed airstrip is located 7km west of the town centre.

St Arnaud is close to the Grampians National Park and various recreational lakes, which provide the opportunity for fishing, sailing and power boating.

The town sits on the northern edge of the popular Pyrenees wine region and the major centres of Bendigo, Ballarat and Horsham are all only an hour or so away by road.

Melbourne is only 2½ hours away and recently established air flights can have you in Sydney in less than two hours from Bendigo.

This successful practice has been operating in the area since 1960 and in its current location since 1985. It has grossed well over $1.3 million for more than the past three years and the vendor is now looking to move into retirement.


The practice is located in a brick veneer and tiled roof single storey purpose built but based on a residential footprint, situated on a main road. The property is a fully subdivided entity with established trees and lawns and an enclosure for large animals. The practice was built in three phases: firstly in 1985 with a small facility (approximately 120 square metres), which included a single consulting room and satisfied all the requirements of a Class A Veterinary Hospital at the time. In 1987 an isolation room and storeroom were added and in 2003 a large extension was added to give a larger waiting room, a second consulting room and a nurses’ office, as well as a general refurbishment and reorganisation of the building. The practice is highly visible with large signage placed in numerous vantage points around the property. There is vehicular access at the rear of the premises and plenty of shaded parking available, (eight onsite and numerous other spaces).

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.

Please click here to see photos! photos

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 $400,000 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.
