Ipswich – Small Animal Veterinarian

Location: Ipswich  |  Queensland  |  Australia
Sector: Vets
Consultant: Ashley Nichol
Job Reference: IPS8
Job Status: Maternity Cover / Full Time


A well-rounded and experienced general practitioner is required for full-time maternity cover across two well-equipped practices located in Ipswich (30 minutes west of Brisbane).

We are 100% small animal, ASAV accredited hospital delivering an interesting mix between GP and emergency cases (but no dreaded on-call!) ranging from vaccinations, reproductive health and general surgery, to more complex medical and surgical workups (including orthopaedics).

This full-time position may suit those wanting to test the waters in emergency (as we see a high caseload) providing an opportunity to gain some additional experience in this area. For the more surgically minded we have a travelling specialist with us weekly as well as planned surgical wet practical sessions. There is view for a more permanent role for the right applicant.

We have all the toys – DR digital Xray, modern ultrasound, new dental Xray, in-house IDEXX pathology (Procyte, catalyst and Quickvet coagulation and blood typing), endoscopy, monitoring equipment including capnography, doppler, and Petmap.

Our team of dedicated, experienced & efficient nursing staff are available for support so that you can remain focused to maintain a high level of patient care.

We are looking for a confident and level-headed professional who can work independently under pressure but also thrives in a team environment. An excellent communicator, who can build good client rapport whilst remaining efficient and conscious of time management. We want you to be as passionate about your work and personal development as we are so that you take advantage of our paid study leave and financial incentives.

The successful applicant will receive a generous package including all the usual perks.
