Searching for a practice that feels like home? You’ve found it at Samford Valley Vet Hospital.

You will not find a better team anywhere.  

We support each other.  We work hard.  We collaborate.  We always hold the patients’ needs first and foremost.  We have vets with many decades of experience to assist you.  We problem solve together.

We challenge you to find a more adaptive and efficient small animal team in Australia!

Samford Valley is 25km from Brisbane city, 1.5hrs to Gold & Sunshine Coasts

Ideally we need a full time vet.  We can also accommodate your preference for part time or casual.

You will have everything at your fingertips to diagnose & work-up your cases in our fully equipped small animal hospital. Digital xrays inc dental, ultrasound, surgical theatre, intensive care, in-house lab, bair huggers…the list goes on!

We have been in our beautiful Samford Valley for over 40 years.  We are ingrained in our community and their animals – and we simply wouldn’t have it any other way. Positions in our practice are tightly held, and our team really do make a difference in the lives of our loving, close-knit family community.  Our clients are dedicated & willingly follow your patient care plan.

Canine (85%) Feline (10%) Wildlife / Avian (<5 %)

The caseload is broad and varied – we really do see it all here! From the simple to the complex – medical and surgical.

We see the normal mix of household pet problems through the consult door, as well as plenty of emergencies common to country living (ticks, snake bites, heat stress, hit by car etc)

Full or Part Time Position – You’ll need a solid base in both medicine & surgery (we already have orthopaedic surgeons so you don’t need to be able to do that).  Your roster will include both surgery and consulting shifts. Prefer just consulting and no surgery? No problems.

Casual Positions – we require primarily consulting shift cover (medicine, no surgery). We have shifts every day available at present – and can accommodate around your pre-existing schedule.

We have members of our team who are skilled at ultrasound and surgery – and are always at the ready to assist. We work together on cases where required.  We also have visiting specialists available to come to us for those complex cases. Support is always available.

Samford feels like a small country town, but is really on the outskirts of Brisbane – only 25km from the city.  We are halfway between the Sunshine and Gold Coasts. We are home to some of the very best restaurants and coffee houses in Australia.  So many families have their own little piece of paradise on a couple of acres with a cat, a couple of dogs, a horse, and perhaps an alpaca or two.

We of course provide annual leave, personal leave, superannuation and all the usual perks.

Things we do a little differently are:

  • We believe in investing in your future – and provide a very generous  annual CPD allocation.
  • We are a family friendly practice – and have lots of parents within our team.  We are flexible and understanding around your personal commitments.  Paid parental leave is one of our many benefits.
  • We believe in people – and very regularly have team lunches, celebrations and create ‘feel good’ opportunities within our busy days.

We would love to meet you, in the meantime you can meet us here:
