An experienced companion animal veterinarian is required to join our country mixed practice at Kyabram to lead our small animal team.

This mixed practice services an extensive dairy community as well as a growing equine client base.  We have a solid loyal and growing base of small animal clients and our vets strive to deliver a very high standard of care whilst building and sharing skills in a positive and enjoyable work environment.  The practice is well equipped with all the expected gear to deliver quality care to small animals including full Idexx laboratory, digital radiography, ultrasound, and more.  We can refer cases for CT and specialist procedures to our flagship small animal practice Fur Life Vet in Bendigo.

You will be part of our local management team, joining the Large Animal Team Leader, Clinic Coordinator and Clinical Lead Veterinarian, with the support of our Regional Lead.

We will support your continuing education to develop this interest.  Your ability to lead a small team with your excellent communication and ability to build rapport with your clients and colleagues will be highly regarded.

Practice opening hours are: Monday to Friday, 8am to 5.30pm and Saturday, 8:30am to 12:00pm. The role will involve 1 in 4 weekends. You will work a 9-day fortnight and we can offer flexible working arrangements for the right person.

The practice is in Kyabram, a large rural Centre in the Goulburn Valley region and offers a wide range of sporting and social activities. The Murray River and all its tourist attractions are just a short drive away. Melbourne is an easy two hour drive away.
