The Practice: 
The practice has been established since the early 90's. They pride themselves on providing high-quality veterinary care for pets, utilising the latest advances in veterinary knowledge alongside a wide array of specialist equipment including high specification in-house laboratory machines. Currently they have an operating theatre, x-ray, in-house laboratory, biochemistry, haematology, electrolyte, an isolation unit, hospital ward, dentistry, blood pressure monitor, ultrasound, orthopaedics and exotic pet services.
The surgery operates a 24/365 in-house emergency service for registered clients, ensuring the most recent clinical history is available to the vet treating your pet, at the location where your pet is normally seen.

The Role:
