Type: Small Animal

Location: Liskeard, Cornwall

Practice Type: Part of a group

Facilities: They have an extensive range of modern equipment including digital and dental x-ray, endoscopy/bronchoscopy, ultrasound, tonometer, slit lamp, diathermy, cutting-edge anaesthetic monitors, plus orthopaedic kit, and they are always open to requests for new equipment to ensure you can follow your interests. They are in the process of upgrading their ultrasound as 2 of their vets share a passion for cardiology

During your on-call week, you are also not required to work in the practice during the day and as we have a dedicated Wednesday night vet, you’ll also have the whole of Wednesday off.

The second week you will consult on Saturday morning, then be on-call until 6 am Sunday, plus you’ll get the following Wednesday off.
