Melina Grin, Sydney, NSW (posted 22nd May) Trainee Vet Nurse

Is your clinic based in Sydney?

Are you considering expanding your practice in the next 6-12months to include Canine & Feline physical therapy and rehabilitation?

Most small animal patients require physical therapy will have had orthopaedic or neurological surgery. In some cases, a reasonable technical outcome of surgery doesn't always equate to a good functional recovery. Inadequate treatment, specifically during the early stages of recovery, may result in a slow or incomplete return to function, muscle atrophy, joint stiffness and joint dysfunction. 

As a Vet Nurse student specialising in Physical Therapy modalities including Canine Myofunctional Therapy, I am very passionate about rehabilitation and keen to offer my services on casual basis. 

If you are looking for your next extraordinary rehabilitation nurse or would like to add-value to your clinic, please consider my qualifications and make me an integral part of your clinic's treatment plan!

Happy to supply my resume at any time, thank you and look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Natalie, Perth NOR, WA (posted 31st March) Experienced & Qualified Vet Nurse, Part Time

Seasoned Vet Nurse Available!]

Qualified Cert IV Vet Nurse working in small animal practices for the last 10 years, seeking part time work north of the river in Perth. Currently registered with the VSB WA.

Animal welfare is my passion and I strive to ensure every patient gets the best of care. This naturally extends to clients that deserve to know their pets are in safe hands.

I am experienced in surgical and general nursing and all the duties that these roles include such as, blood taking, running IDEXX bloods, catheterising, surgical patient prep, anesthetic monitoring, dental scale and polish, discharging patients, patient handling and much more! I also pride myself on wonderful customer service in the receptionist role.

I am trained on RX Works however will learn another software system quickly. I feel continuing education is very important to keep skills current and attend educational events as often as I can.

I have a special interest in feline health and behaviour which is what has led to my extensive involvement in cat rescue in Perth.

I would love to hear from you if you are looking for an experienced team worker to join your vet practice.

Chad Mauger, Adelaide Metro, SA (posted 31st March) Trainee Vet Nurse

I would like to express my interest in finding employment, preferably in the Adelaide metro area, as a junior or trainee veterinary nurse. 

Two years ago I made the decision to change my current career path in the information technology field to the veterinary field.  To that end, I have completed a Certificate III in Animal Studies (Veterinary Nursing) through the Australian College of Veterinary Nursing (ACVN) and my qualification is issued through Queensland Agricultural Training Colleges.  As a result of these studies, I am also partially qualified for Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and I plan to enrol in and complete Certificate IV once I have found employment within the veterinary industry.

Customer service roles have been a large part of my career to date and I bring with me over ten years experience in serving customers.  I have developed strong verbal and written communication skills with a customer-centred attitude.  I also bring a bachelors’ degree in medical and pharmaceutical biotechnology and laboratory skills that are transferable to the veterinary environment. Your organisation can benefit from my demonstrated ability to think on my feet and adapt to difficult situations along with my attention to detail and commitment to completing accurate documentation.

I won’t tell you how much I love animals because it should be a prerequisite for working in the veterinary industry but I will tell you that my family has kept pets since I was young and that I understand the importance of veterinary care.  I can be relied upon to deliver a high standard of work as I strive for excellence and cannot settle for “good enough”.  

Please feel free to contact me (P: 0419 490 019; E: if you have any questions or would like to see a copy of my resume and references. I look forward to hearing from you.
