GPE practices state of the art surgery, medicine and reproduction. The case load includes a wide variety of horses from Clydesdales to miniature ponies, racing industry, sport and pleasure horses and everything in between. Our facility is one of the largest in Victoria comprising a modern hospital with a stable capacity for 28 horses, isolation and various additional yards and paddocks over 80 acres. Our foaling down facilities are under lights and cameras. We have all the latest equipment you would expect in a first grade equine hospital.

The growing practice is currently performing approximately 30 gas anaesthetics per month (arthroscopies, colics, throat surgery, cryptorchids, fracture repair etc) and at least double that amount of intravenous anaesthetics and standing procedures that are also performed in the hospital (joint flushes, implant removals, stitch ups, geldings, eye surgeries, sequestrums etc). Additionally we perform numerous field anaesthetics. Three surgeons (one on staff and two visiting) with specialty training routinely use the facility, and visiting specialists in other fields (medicine/ophthalmology/reproduction) are welcomed to use the facility.

We have a large reproduction case load that includes artificial insemination (frozen and fresh chilled), embryo-flushes and collection for ET, hysteroscopic procedures, and laparascopic PGE. We service a wide range of studs in the area.  As a consequence of our busy reproductive case load, we also see numerous sick foals, dystocias and associated medicine and surgery cases.

The practice also has a busy ambulatory component and services a large number of clients across South Western Victoria, the Mornington Peninsula and the Central Highlands and Goldfields. The ambulatory work is unique in that the hospital and hospital staff can offer support to vets working in the field. As a result, our clients have become accustom to gold standard service on farm.

We are interested in hiring a passionate equine veterinarian. Our preference would be for someone wanting to move to the area long term and become part of our awesome team. We are very supportive of continuing education, and the practice would be ideal for someone that seeks higher skills within equine practice.
