Veterinarian- Fur Life Vet Yarrawonga

Are you tired of the busy city work slog?


Are you tired of large animals and on call?


We have an exciting opportunity for you to join our small animal practice with no after hours, in a clinic that is lovely to work at with an actual work/life balance!

Fur Life Vet Yarrawonga operates out of our new clinic on the shores of the Murray River in northern Victoria.

Our beautiful, purpose-built clinic has 5 consult rooms, dedicated surgical theatre, prep area with 2 stations, diagnostic imaging room, dedicated dog and cat wards, dental room + IM3 equipment, laboratory with IDEXX equipment, and is fully equipped with all the expected bells and whistles. 

Our small team prides itself on having a happy and supportive atmosphere in which to practise medicine. Everyone genuinely enjoys coming to work and we have a lovely client base.

Yarrawonga is on the south bank of the Murray River in northern Victoria with Mulwala on the NSW side. It is situated on the iconic Lake Mulwala, therefore, if you enjoy water sports, fishing, river cruising, then this is your inland aquatic paradise!

Thanks to being a tourist destination, there is plenty to keep foodies happy – wineries, lakeside dining and local producers. It is surrounded by small boutique towns so therefore you will never be short of weekend activities. Not to mention it’s close to the ski fields in winter for those who enjoy the snow.  It is a welcoming small community and only a short drive to regional centres such as Albury, Wangaratta and Shepparton.

  • We are looking for another experienced part time vet to join our growing clinic
  • 100% companion animals
  • No after hours
  • Fantastic work life balance and close-knit friendly team

You are a veterinarian looking for a lifestyle change or coming back in to the workforce but looking for a great work/life balance. You want to work in a friendly environment, in a purpose-built clinic and then live the regional life in beautiful Yarrawonga in your time off. You will be experienced in routine GP medicine and surgery and enjoy chatting to clients and building strong relationships. You will be confident with some sole charge when required and are looking forward to making a difference in a clinic team that cares about you too.
