Their dynamic team consists of 5 vets, 7 RVNs, and 7 support staff. The practice has state-of-the-art equipment including cassette radiography, ultrasound machine including Doppler, and in-house lab machines (haematology, biochemistry, EPOC, Vcheck for in-house cortisol, CPLI, etc.) The successful applicant can expect to see a variety of cases with approximately 80% dogs and cats, but with a growing exotics caseload, with a large number of their clients being insured.
