There are two designated operating theatres, a purpose built large prep/dental and non sterile operating theatre, separate dog and cat waiting rooms and wards.

You will be a good communicator, having empathy with clients and their pets and a passion to practice excellent veterinary medicine and surgery alongside our client’s like minded team.
