About Us
The Wild Vet is an exotics and small animal hospital based in Glebe, just across the road from the beautiful Blackwattle Bay foreshore walk.

You will be joining our team as a casual veterinary nurse working 3-5 days per week with the option for progression to a full-time role after a probationary period.
