The employer ensures that vets have a strict finishing time, and a complete 1-hour lunch break is guaranteed, with a quiet area upstairs for some chill time, separate from the clinic so staff can enjoy lunch on the balcony.

– Separate dental area with adjustable height specialised dental table, x-ray and comprehensive dental instruments.

Comments from a vet who has been working at this practice since November 2018:

There is a very happy, positive team atmosphere in the clinic. Everyone helps each other out. There are a lot of long-term, loyal staff here. The practice owner is very generous, kind and caring. It is a busy clinic, but we have a good work-life balance. We don’t do any Sundays or on-call, and our employer really looks after the staff. I have worked in a lot of different practices, and I find this one to be exceptional.

We do 20-minute consults and have consulting nurses, which really takes the pressure off the vets. The practice is well-equipped. We have a new digital x-ray machine, IM3 dental and an ultrasound.

The practice is located in a lovely small city. It is very easy to get around. There is a nice culture. The weather is great. We find it to be a great, easy-going lifestyle. There are fantastic beaches, great for boating and swimming. There are lots of nice places to walk dogs.
