A typical working week comprises of 5 working days with variable 7 hour shifts between 7am and 7.30pm, some weekday sleeping duty shifts are included within this and accommodation is provided (additional OOH retainer fees are paid on top of agreed upon salary).

They have staff kennels so you are able to bring your dog to work. Not only does it mean that you do not have to worry about your dog being at home alone on those busy days, but you can also get out of the building at lunch time. Stretch your legs in the scenic countryside!

At the main branch they have excellent facilities with x-ray, dental x-ray, ultrasound, and a well-equipped laboratory. We have cat, dog, and exotic kennels, as well as separate isolation kennels. They also have fenced paddock areas for inpatient exercise.
The branch surgery is much smaller, but also busy with a strong client base, and a more family feel.
They are also a training practice with the College of Animal Welfare (CAW) and take both degree and diploma students.
