Paralowie Veterinary Surgery – Full Time or Part Time Veterinarian
Paralowie Veterinary Surgery is a progressive, rapidly expanding clinic located north of the Adelaide CBD. We operate as a single site clinic dealing exclusively with small animals with exotics attended to by a colleague with a special interest in these species.
We have an amazing, highly skilled, and experienced team of Veterinarians and Support staff ready to help you and welcome you into their family. There is ample opportunity for the right candidate to show their expertise in the treatment and care for domestic animals and to continue to develop surgical and medical skills.
We are extremely well equipped for both surgical and medical diagnostic procedures with equipment of a very high standard and calibre. The caseload is varied with less than a third of our cases being elective and preventative healthcare-based cases. Investigational procedures are performed on a very high proportion of our cases, which makes for an interesting and challenging environment.
There is a complement of highly qualified and experienced nursing staff to assist with an above average nurse to vet ratio. We pride ourselves on the level of interaction and co-involvement of all vets and nurses during case investigation and progress discussions.
Consulting starts at 9am and finishes at 7:30pm Monday to Friday with a Saturday morning session beginning at 9am and finishing at 12pm. Shifts for vets are no longer than 8 hours on any given day. There are no out of hours or emergency call-outs with clients directed to available emergency centres. There is a requirement to work 1-2 evenings per week and one in 3-4 Saturdays. We aim to be accommodating and consistent with the roster allowing you to plan your life.
