snowy river logo

Small, affordable mixed practice in brilliant lifestyle location.

Snowy River Vet Clinic is a 2 – 3 vet practice based in the small town of Orbost in eastern Victoria, just 15 km from the coast.
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.

This diversity has made for a financially resilient practice, which has weathered economic downturns, drought and changing farming practices to remain a thriving business. The gross income has grown over the past 12 years, reach $1 million over the past 12 month period.


Snowy River Vet Clinic is extremely highly regarded in the local community, and in spite of being a small rural practice is equipped and operates to the highest level of care. Equipment includes....


The practice operates from premises one block from the main street of town, with a large carpark. 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 building has undergone an extensive  upgrades and re-fitout in the past three years making it an efficient, streamlined workplace with:

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.

The owner is prioritising a lifestyle transition, and has realistic expectations in relation to negotiating the sale price.

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 $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.

Permanent Mixed Vet Equine Focus - Tasmania

Senior associate with equine interest required for mixed practice in central north of Tasmania. This position would be well suited to someone who has done at least an internship, and better still a residency, in equine, and is progressing well in their professional development since then. Ideally, the successful applicant would be mentored into becoming the team leader in our equine department. As this is a genuine mixed practice, a desire to maintain basic competency across all species would be an advantage but not essential. For the right person this could be an equine only role. The equine component of our practice includes extensive dental work, and serves as a referral practice for complicated workups including lameness, endoscopy, dental and sinus surgery to name a few. Full lameness work ups are enabled by high quality DR radiography and top of the range diagnostic ultrasound. Trigger point analysis and intra-articular injections are an important part of our lameness evaluations and treatment. The successful applicant will also be comfortable doing pre-purchase examinations. There is also a reproductive component to our caseload, involvement in which would be optional.

This role will be both ambulatory (including Portasafe Stocks and power float dental gear) and from our hospital facilities. There is also potential for active input into the possible establishment of an equine surgical theatre, which would then facilitate becoming the only surgical facility in Tasmania that accepts colic surgery utilizing in house staff.

We have a spacious hospital, and are very well equipped for a semi-rural practice, including comprehensive orthopaedic gear, arthroscope (including equine size instrumentation), Idexx blood, ophthalmic operating microscope, flexible and rigid endoscopy, CR and DR X-ray. Clientele are generally very good and appreciative of quality service provided. Nursing staff are some of the best in Tassie, giving competent support including after-hours availability. Veterinarians are encouraged to pursue their own cases through to completion or the limit of their ability, with back up or bail out provided as needed! Teamwork is a priority for us, with all staff contributing to a happy work environment, while providing quality care. Due to the number of veterinary staff (four to five vets on any one day), there is real potential to pursue particular areas of professional interest.

The town itself is well equipped with sporting facilities, schools, etc (even pubs). We have a long history of satisfied graduates usually staying in excess of 2 years, and a more recent history of long term (5 years plus) associates still with us.  After hours roster and salary negotiable depending on the skill and experience level of the successful applicant.

For the right person there will be definite opportunity for ownership participation through a private company structure. So if you love horse work, and are looking for somewhere to really settle down and enjoy life (drought free!), this could be the one for you.

Interested? Please send a resume with cover letter to our practice owner Dr Roger Blackwell,, or call (03) 6362 2108 business hours or 0417 322108 A/H
