We are committed to the continued development of the facility and its instrumentation, to ensure that contemporary and newly developed techniques and practices are available for our patients.
Our Emergency/ICU department enjoys a busy and varied load, encompassing a broad range of emergency and critical care cases. The ICU Veterinarian position involves primary responsibility for the care and treatment of referred and primary accession cases arriving through the Emergency department, as well as assistance in the care of hospitalised patients from our specialist departments.
