SINGAPORE - SMALL ANIMALS New Graduates welcome

Singapore - Small Animal Practice

The practice is seeking the services of a doctor with practical knowledge and skills. What’s needed is someone able to look after the Patients well, and provide a good service to the Clients. The medical standard offered to Clients is high, and less expensive alternatives are provided as options.

Support includes an experienced Team (so flexibility is important), and modern facilities and a high level of equipment.

From the doctors’ viewpoint, if you are able to operate with at least a little independence, the practice provides a fantastic opportunity to develop skills, being equipped well for imaging in radiology, ultrasound, and endoscopy; surgery in soft tissue and orthopaedics; dermatology; ophthalmology; and TCVM; and supports and encourages high level internal medicine. Additionally, it supports continuing education in whatever relevant field you choose, with flexible leave and financial support packages and equipment purchasing. You can potentially grow faster here than at a large referral practice. You do not need to be an expert to begin.

Remuneration is better than competitive, and Singapore is similar in many ways to London or Sydney – a big, fast, air-conditioned, well fed, english-speaking city.

If you believe you may be a candidate and are interested in our position, please contact us ( / +65 9146 5265) and we’ll help you decide.

Our International team consists of 9 International Vets (from the UK, Ireland, Poland, Spain and more!) and 11 Vietnamese & Lao Vets: most of our team came for a year, re-found their love for Veterinary medicine and then stayed for more!

We also offer regular CPD opportunities around the region; fancy brushing up on neurology in Bangkok, orthopaedics in Hong Kong, seminars in Singapore?

Send your CV to Dr Tara at and we'll set up a friendly interview to get to know each other!

Veterinary help needed in Indonesian Borneo

Help improve animal welfare in Indonesia by sharing your skills and experience!

Facility and Program Description:
Kawasan Wisata Pendidikan Lingkungan Hidup (KWPLH) is an environmental education center located in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. The facility’s goal is to increase environmental awareness and animal welfare. In addition to our animal programmes, the facility has several education buildings, picnic areas and playgrounds. To see a full description of the KWPLH’s facilities and goals visit or email us.

KWPLH provides a wonderful accommodation in the form of a forested enclosure for 7 sun bears rescued from the illegal pet trade. Sun bears are the mascot of Balikpapan, and many of our current education programs focus on this species.

Our Domestic Animal Program was created in response to the frequent dumping of kittens/puppies at KWPLH. We have attempted to establish a safe home for abandoned animals and a sterilization and adoption program. We currently have 145+ cats under our care as well as close to 30 dogs, and several other rescued wildlife species whenever brought to the center (macaque, civets, slow loris, birds).

The goals of our Domestic Animal Program are:

Experienced Volunteer Vet Needed
We are in need of experienced veterinarians to assist with training and development of our local animal care team. The primary goal is to train up our team [specifically our local veterinarian] in specialist medical care for our animals, under more or less challenging conditions, and to train our Indonesian animal care-taking staff in mastering necessary skills and knowledge on specialist issues that need frequent treatments.

Other tasks include ideas on improvement of our medical administration and records, enrichment and training programs, and enhancing our adoption programme. There will be work with the sun bears and other wild species, but most time will go to our domestic animals and staff training.

Outlined below is a list of topics that we need help with:

For more details about KWPLH and the veterinary position please email us!
We welcome the help from professional veterinarians in 2021. The position is preferably for 3+ months, but do e-mail us as well if you are available for shorter periods. Free housing is provided at the center, but a small local catering fee is required for meals. A volunteer visa will need to be applied for. Couples are also welcome to apply. Due to the Corona virus, timing of postings will depend on how this situation develops. (No visas are being issued for volunteers at the moment.)

Please send end questions and resumes to Gabriella Fredriksson:

The world has changed and we have to accept what is.  The animals don't know what the coronavirus is and so we won't tell them.  We will just keep trying to help as many as we can.

If you're in Thailand, or once things open up, please contact us.  We need your help.  Thank You!​

About Us:

Long term Vets wanted.

We have realized that we really need to have long term Vet volunteers.  

We are looking for a vet (and spouse if you have) who would appreciate the opportunity to take a sabbatical period, 6, 9 even 12 months off.  

Someone who is looking to sink deep into Thai culture, food, language, and island life.  And who is give back to a population that up until recently had no choice for the care of their animals.

Koh Mak is an incredible place to live that has so much to offer on many different levels.

So to that end we are building a small studio bungalow just across the yard from the clinic.

This self contained "doctor's studio" will have a private bath, small kitchenette, closet, work area, dinette table and front terrace, and designed to give privacy and space for the occupants.

Here is a short movie that shows what we do and who we are looking for.

And here is the full 11 minute film:

Te Are Manu relies on the generosity of incredible volunteers from all over the world to staff our clinic and provide quality veterinary care to the animals of Rarotonga and Aitutaki (and covering the Cook Islands).

We have a beautiful new clinic based in Arorangi and welcome all our volunteers with open arms and a friendly Cook Islands welcome!

We are looking for volunteers who are keen to help our local animals whilst also having the opportunity to enjoy a stay in paradise.

Your volunteer experience will see you have time to gain experience and exposure to varied caseload. Previous volunteers have said Te Are Manu is a wonderful place for clinical professional development.

Our services include seeing patients for skin conditions, nail clips, road traffic accidents, dog bite and other wounds, fish poisoning and a high volume of spey and neuter surgeries.

You will also get to explore the beautiful place that we call home.

Please click here to see photos! photos

Ideally we would like volunteers who can stay for 4-6 months or longer, but please contact us if you can only stay for a shorter period and we willl see if we can accommodate that. At the moment we are trying to source vets from June 2021 onwards.
There is no maximum stay with us. Come for a year if you like! For longer periods we can offer a stipend to help cover living costs.

We arrange all visa requirements for entry into the Cook Islands. The Cook Islands is free from coronavirus but at the moment our borders are closed. Vets from New Zealand are still allowed to enter.

We greet volunteers at the airport and make sure they get settled in to our beautiful volunteer house just a few minutes away from the clinic and on a stunning beach - great for swimming, snorkeling and relaxing.

However there is a possibility that in the near future an ‘international bubble’ between Australia, New Zealand and the Cook Islands will be formed when both Australia and New Zealand have eliminated or contained the virus. This would allow passenger flights to start again. When that happens vets and vet nurses from those two countries will be able to reach Rarotonga. We hope this will happen in a month or two. In the meantime please contact Te Are Manu if you are interested in volunteering even though you won’t be able to specify a date at the moment.

ALBERTA - GRAND PRAIRIE - SMALL ANIMALSnew grads welcomeimmigration assistance

Come to Canada, and celebrate inclusiveness, affordability, equity, and universal healthcare. Immerse yourself in our friendly culture, and beautiful scenery. The opportunity for Adventure and the experience of a lifetime is calling… from Canada!

Animals First Clinic – Not only our name, but our PHILOSOPHY! Our experienced, friendly and progressive team is seeking a full-time licensed Veterinarian to join our growing clinic in the city of Grande Prairie, Alberta.  

Our trio of experienced Veterinarians is supported by 12 awesome RVTs & support staff, and we are looking to nurture the establishment of an additional full-time Veterinarian. We celebrate best practices, and support one another. We work collaboratively, and have regular doctor’s meetings to ensure consistency and open communication. Together, we run a busy clinic, and it is this togetherness and commitment to each other that has led to success and such a loyal client base. In support of your medicine, you will have an in-house lab coupled with Cornerstone, digital x-ray, dental x-ray, laser therapy, and ultrasound.

You will be scheduled for 40 hours over 5 days, and while we do require on-call shifts, the service is shared with another veterinary clinic.

Experienced Veterinarians are welcome, and we will most definitely consider a new graduate as our team is highly skilled and passionate about mentoring. The opportunities for professional growth in this modern small animal practice are limited only by your imagination! For example, Dr. Barth is available for, and excited to provide orthopedic mentorship to those interested (although interest in Orthopedic Surgery is not required for this role). Without specialists in our immediate area, you truly get to practice the art of veterinary medicine.  You will be able to independently provide clients with a comprehensive plan from start to finish.

Grand Prairie is a vibrant and growing northern community of over 63,000. Our city offers all the amenities, with the added bonus of a Great Canadian Outdoor playground on your doorstep. Grand Prairie is the hub of the Alberta and BC Peace Region, and provides quick access for outdoor enthusiasts to world-renowned hiking, fishing, kayaking, skiing, snowshoeing, and river boating. Snowmobilers enjoy the supreme winter-wonderland trails that become increasingly secluded as one travels west into the Rocky Mountains, and between the months of May and October these trails transform into superb ATV and mountain-biking paths. Explore Big Mountain Creek Provincial Park or Crystal Lake nearby, or escape for an adventurous weekend to the mountain town of Grande Cache, or Willmore Wilderness Park, or Jasper National Park.

Grand Prairie boasts incredible value. Property and housing are readily available, and particularly affordable in comparison with the other 5 largest cities in Alberta. Grand Prairie is the type of place that allows you to live on an acreage and still be at work in 10 minutes! Residents of Grand Prairie can even claim 50% of the Northern living allowance on their taxes, and a healthy employment market makes the city attractive for family members too. A regional College, Hospital, Art Gallery, and the Eastlink Centre multi-sport facility are just a few amenities frequented by locals, with the Bear Creek Folk Festival and Grand Prairie Stampede drawing many from out-of-province.

Affordability, adventure, and all the amenities, without the traffic, pollution, or commute. Grand Prairie is calling…. to all licensed Veterinarians interested in joining Animals First Clinic.
Moving from Australia to Canada has the appeal of travel and adventure, without the drawbacks of language barriers or disorienting culture shock. We’re commonwealth cousins… Australians say “G’day,” whereas Canadians say “Eh.” Canada is a peaceful country and, Grand Prairie is a perfect mix of city amenities and outdoor adventure opportunities. Canada celebrates diversity, culture, equity, the arts, sports, adventure, and inclusion. You will be free to authentically be yourself and feel welcomed into our community with open arms and hearts.

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.

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.
