Large Animal Vets Wanted

Northern Rivers Equine Veterinary Clinic is based in Kyabram, Northern Victoria. We are centrally located only 30 mins from the Murray river, Echuca and Shepparton, a short hour drive to Bendigo or two hours to Melbourne and the snow fields. Kyabram is a busy small town with a strong sporting community.

We are a first opinion equine and dairy clinic offering more advanced equine performance and reproductive procedures. The clinic began as primarily an equine clinic in 2009. Over time the facilities and clientele have grown substantially. We have also recently expanded our clientele to the dairy industry and service approximately 6000 head of cattle in the region (extending into NSW) with the opportunity to do more for the right candidate.

Please click here to see photos! photos

Currently 95% of our work is equine based, from high level performance and racehorses to pony club, pleasure horses and retirees.

As a result we have a broad and varied case load. The clinic is based on a 500 acre standardbred stud farm (owned by our own Dr Kath McIntosh), which is run as ‘Llowalong Farms’. We have over 150 mares on farm and 6 standardbred stallions standing during 2021 season, including 3 shuttle stallions from North America. We also run a recipient mare herd to service the embryo transfer program for our own clients and those of other clinics.

Our facilities are purpose built and modern, they include an 18 horse stable, 8 horse monorail walker, 15 day yards, stallion quarantine facilities, collection area and lab as well as a clinic which houses an intensive hospital box, two padded knock down boxes and 8 horse crushes.

We have all the gear to match our varied caseload, including power float dental equipment, portable endoscope, three ultrasounds, DR radiography and a shockwave machine. We also have full in house pathology, including haematology, biochemistry and progesterone machines.

We have strong existing relationships with specialists throughout Victoria and the ability to refer where required for various orthopaedic procedures.

Currently our cattle work accounts for 5% of the caseload, however there is room to grow this if the successful candidate is interested. We perform routine ambulatory sick cow consultations, calvings, surgeries and lameness examinations.

We have been operating as a 3 veterinarian clinic for about 9 years now and are wanting to expand to four. One of our vets is moving on so we have two positions now available. Ability to do some equine work is desirable, however cattle only vets will also be considered.

We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic and wants to work with a progressive team of people and practise high quality veterinary work and grow the practice into the future.

Our on-call work is mainly based at the clinic during stud season and is minimal outside this time. We share the on-call commitments in a 1 in 3 roster, we anticipate to make this 1 in 4 with two RDOs following your weekend on call.

The salary package is commensurate with experience and includes a phone allowance, vehicle, 4 weeks annual leave, after hours remuneration, 1 week study leave, AVA, EVA and CVA registration.

Experienced as well as keen new and recent graduates are encouraged to apply.

Please contact Kath on 0427 497 429 or email kath@nrequine.com.au

Yulong Stud has a position for an Equine Veterinarian within the veterinary team of our business. Working alongside our two resident Vets, you will cover all aspects of a large commercial thoroughbred stud.

Yulong is a growing thoroughbred stud based in Nagambie, Victoria. Spread over 3,000 acres and across four adjoining properties, Yulong currently has five resident stallions, 300 broodmares and over 200 foals to yearlings. Consigning yearlings at all major sales throughout Australia, and a racing team of eighty plus horses gives the Veterinarians great job variety and exposure to all aspects of the business.

The successful candidate will be a highly motivated and organised person who wishes to be part of a close-knit Veterinary team as well as learning the structure and management of a thoroughbred stud. As we are currently in the development phase of two of the additional stud properties, you would be involved with input into set up and design of vet working areas within these properties.

The chosen candidate would be joining an established veterinary practice with two highly competent Veterinary nurses and two Veterinarians. Dr. Patino has completed a theriogenology residency in the USA and Dr. Meyer has 10 years of experience in both clinical and stud medicine between the American and Australian thoroughbred industries. The veterinary team is a very friendly group with a strong passion to provide excellent patient care while still pursuing a good work life balance. With support from the other resident Vets, you will share the on-call roster with the option of having four-day weeks in the months of May, June and July.

Yulong’s veterinary facilities include a full lab comprised of hematology, chemistry and blood gas machines along with the ability to do cultures and sensitivities. We also have portable ultrasound, digital radiograph and video endoscope machines. Additionally, our practice has strong relationships with nearby equine referral hospitals and therefore referral and additional support from internal medicine specialist, surgeons and theriogenologists is also available.

Reproduction would be the main focus during the breeding season and being proficient with scanning mares pre and post service, pregnancy testing and twin ablation is essential. The ideal candidate will also have prior experience with emergency stud work, foal medicine, yearling endoscopy, and radiography as well as racehorse lameness. However, a Veterinarian with less experience in the latter areas will still be considered as mentorship from the senior stud Veterinarians will be available. We would encourage you to attend seminars and clinics to further your education in all fields of veterinary work and the company would be happy to provide financial support for this.

You would have the opportunity to attend yearling sales to oversee the veterinary care of our yearling draft whilst on the sale complex. As well as assisting management with yearling inspections and completing thorough pre purchase clinical examinations, reading pre-sale x-rays and evaluating pre-sale upper airway endoscopy videos.

We currently have a staff of 65 and the ability to effectively communicate as well as assist with ongoing education of the stud staff is vitally important to the growth of the business.

The breeding side of the operation is located the beautiful wine region of the lower Goulburn Valley. We are located a quick 1.5-hour drive or train ride into central Melbourne. A fifth property, Yulong Park, serves as the spelling farm for our racehorses and is located on the opposite side of Melbourne and is only a short drive away from the Mornington Peninsula.

If you are ambitious and wish to advance your career further, then this would be the ideal position for you.
