A rapidly growing clinic in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges is seeking a part-time vet to work Monday and Friday (8 am to 6 pm), and every third Saturday (9 am to 1 pm).

In addition, the practice has a visiting medical specialist and ultrasonographer. They are well-equipped with in-house Idexx blood machines, the latest wireless Radincon x-ray, GE ultrasound and IM3 dental facilities, along with ezyvet software that is accessible from home.

There are separate canine and feline hospitalisation rooms and waiting areas to reduce stress for patients and clients. The team prides themselves on providing the best care for every pet.

Perks of the role include:

– No after hours or on call work

– Lunch breaks are enforced

– Long appointment times (Work ups aren’t rushed if the team can help it!)
