The hospital occupies a Victorian-style converted residential building in an affluent part of the city, with highly visible signage and manicured gardens.

This practice has been operated by the current owner since 1989 and has Class A veterinary hospital certification. It is fitted out with two examination rooms, an operating theatre, treatment room, isolation ward, laboratory, staff room, offices, imaging room, storage room, cages and reception and waiting area, with a merchandising section.

The veterinarians have vehicles for ambulatory attendance of large animals - mobile digital X-rays, ultrasound and surgical equipment enables them to perform many procedures in the field. There is also a Porta Safe Stocks trailer for dental, reproductive and surgical treatment of horses.

The clinic is situated a few streets back from the main road and commercial district of the town.

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

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.

Our dynamic small animal practice is looking for an enthusiastic Full or Part time Vet to join and (hopefully) buy our team. We are currently a 1.5 vet practice but have been turning potential clients away as we just don’t have enough time to give them the high quality care we give all our clients and pets…especially since one of us has just had a baby and is having important time off to help her grow!

It is important that we have the time to work cases up properly whilst being able to maintain a work/life balance so we don’t go insane and leave the profession.

Does this sound familiar? Have you worked somewhere where it’s “go, go, go” with no thought for you or your client and patient’s welfare? 5-10min consults, towing the company line and pushing products you don’t believe in? That’s just SO not us. We are an independent practice whose vets, experienced, qualified vet nurses and Practice Manager “Minnie” (she’s a tortoiseshell with a positive attitude) really get on and enjoy our jobs.

The ideal applicant will have 5-10+ years’ experience and is dreaming about owning our practice. They will be passionate about managing cases, continuing education and communicating well with patients, co-workers and clients.

Being a couple of hours from Melbourne, we are generally able to work up interesting cases ourselves (which is very satisfying!) although we can refer if required.

The vet clinic is a purpose-renovated, heritage-listed building with a great feel. We have quite a few fun “toys” including in-house biochemistry, microscopy, blood pressure monitoring, pulse oximetry, capnography, ultrasound, IV infusion pumps and BAIR Hugger.

Please click here to see photos! 

We pride ourselves on having happy patients who don’t dread coming to the vet – “bribery and corruption” of pets with treats is standard and someone with an interest in behaviour would be preferred. A love of cats is a must – “Minnie” is very discerning!

Located on the mighty Murray River, top class restaurants, paddlesteamers, wineries, horse riding and waterskiing make Echuca a fabulous place to live. We have a great clientele with minimal after hours calls (our clients really are considerate!).

So if you love being a vet – especially if you’re wanting to own your own practice, and need to keep learning and improving like us, please contact:
