Type: Small Animal

Team: Their practice thrives on the dedication and expertise of team members, who form the very heart of their operation. Their team includes 5 highly skilled veterinary surgeons, 5 experienced registered veterinary nurses, 1 student veterinary nurse, 1 nursing assistant, and 3 welcoming receptionists. Whether it's providing critical assistance during emergencies or offering unwavering support in daily tasks, we support each other. They are a 4 Veterinary Surgeon practice with a very supportive team of 7 Registered Veterinary Nurses, an Animal Nursing Assistant, and a Receptionist. 

Facilities: Both practices are equipped with digital radiography, ultrasounds, and in-house blood testing equipment. They also have good-sized theatres and consult rooms for their varied first opinion cases.

However, it's important to note that this role does not involve sole charge responsibility.
