The successful applicant will undertake their routine consults at one of the branches, which gives true local care and allows their vets to develop strong relationships with their clients and their pets, and enable them to follow up their own surgical cases at the hospital to ensure continuity of care. They offer all routine and advanced orthopaedic surgery (e.g. TTA) and have their own dedicated lab with specialist lab technicians to ensure they can start treatment as quickly as possible.
