Mixed / Equine Vets…new position vacant at Gippsland Veterinary Hospital and Gippsland Equine Hospital.

Your new team…

The Gippsland Veterinary Hospital is a busy mixed practice with 14 vets (some are production animal vets, some mixed, some small animal only) and 30 support staff based in the heart of the always green and productive Macalister irrigation district in Maffra, south east Gippsland.

Our long-established practice includes our main hospital in Maffra as well as the Sale Vet Centre and purpose-built Gippsland Equine Hospital. We have a great client base of progressive dairy and beef farmers and an ever-expanding population of dedicated equine and small animal owners that trust us with the care of their animals.

We provide a high standard of service and can diagnose and treat most things in-house due to the quality equipment and extensive experience amongst our vets.  We refer very little.

Your new career…

We can tailor the mix of work to suit your interest. 

Ideally, we would like an experienced vet with an equine focus to do 70% equine work and 30% either large or small or both!

If you are a recent graduate and would like to further develop your equine skills your mix could be 60-70% equine and 30% small animals.

This position will also suit a new grad who, in order to establish your skills across all species, would initially expect to do 60-70% small animal and 30% large animal work.
