Is practicing veterinary medicine just a part of your life? 
Tired of the urban rat-race?
Want an outdoor lifestyle? 
Ever considered emigrating to Canada?

The location: 

The practice is located on an acreage on the west shore of Kootenay Lake, nine km north of the village of Kaslo, nestled in the mountain ranges of southeastern British Columbia, Canada.  The geography is dominated by the large, pristine lake and 2000-3000m heavily forested mountains.  The area is relatively sparsely populated, and is becoming a haven for urban refugees. 

The village of Kaslo has a health centre with 4 physicians, a K-12 school, an ice arena, tennis courts and baseball diamond.  A vibrant arts community thrives, with a renowned summer jazz festival on a floating stage.

The real estate:

The practice is located in the bottom floor of a 3 storey, 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom  3600 sq ft home built in 1994.  A covered breezeway containing a hot tub and storage adjoins the house to an 800 sq ft shop with a kennel building underneath. A 1000 sq ft barn with hayloft is situated in the adjacent fenced pasture land.  The buildings are located on a 3-4 hectare parcel of land overlooking a  secluded beach on Kootenay Lake.

Please click here to see photos! photos

The practice: 

Established for 26 years, the practice serves the north end of Kootenay Lake, with the next closest practice 75 km to the south.  The practice is 95% small animal with some potential for expanded equine work in the area.  The clinic has separate bathroom, reception, exam, kennel, treatment, and surgery rooms.  Gas anaesthesia, monitors, new CBC and chemistry analyzers,and an older X-ray unit are in use.  Grooming and boarding facilities are present.  The clientele is loyal and appreciative.  Cases requiring referral can be sent to Washington State University vet teaching hospital across the border.  Two part-time assistants and a family member are currently employed.  Annual gross revenue is in the $600,000 range with a high net due to low overhead costs.

The opportunity: 

The home-based practice provides flexibility in time management, allowing a great work/life balance.  It would enable the prospective new owner to continue working while raising a family and allow the veterinary practice to be a family affair.  The area offers unparalleled and unrestricted access to outdoor recreation, with hiking, mountain biking, ATV’ing, swimming and boating in the summer and skiing, skating and snowmobiling in the winter. The current owner is planning to retire in the area and is willing to assist in the transition. The priority is to ensure that the community has continued access to veterinary services, so sale of the practice with inventory and equipment without the real estate would also be considered.

Rare Opportunity - Mixed Vet - Tasmania - Partnership Potential

We are looking for the next additional vet to join our mixed practice in the central north of Tasmania. This is a genuine mixed practice with the case load evenly spread between cattle (mostly dairy), horses, and small animals. We currently have 7 vets on any one day, but with the boss wanting to make himself redundant, we are looking to add another. We are seeking someone who either is, or has the potential to become, an elite mixed practice veterinarian. Given the number of vets, and the species mix, you will be able to fully pursue your professional development. This should result in good functional capability across all areas of mixed practice, whilst facilitating development in your chosen field of expertise. Due to the lack of resident specialists in Tasmania, we function as a referral centre for many of our colleagues across Tasmania, performing work that would typically be done in a specialist hospital. Our newly completed equine surgical suite further adds to that capability.

Please click here to see photos! photos

Clientele are generally very good and appreciative of quality service provided. Nursing staff are some of the best in Tassie, giving competent support including after-hours availability. Veterinarians are encouraged to pursue their own cases through to completion or the limit of their ability, with back up or bail out provided as needed! Teamwork is a priority for us, with all staff contributing to a happy work environment, while providing quality care. Due to the number of veterinary staff, there is real potential to pursue particular areas of professional interest, whilst maintaining competency across all species.

We pride ourselves on providing cost effective high quality care, and have equipment to facilitate that performance well in excess of what you may expect for a semi-rural practice. By being able to provide high quality care without having to refer all the interesting and challenging cases, the job satisfaction is very high, and we have a history of long term staff that are happy and fulfilled in their work. After hours shared evenly between the more junior staff, with senior staff being available as back up 24/7. Salary range according to experience, and new or recent graduates are very welcome to apply.

Socially, Deloraine is a town of about 2,500 within 35 minutes of provincial cities of Devonport & Launceston. Ski fields, bush walking, lake & ocean fishing all within one hour. The town itself is well equipped with sporting facilities, schools, etc (even pubs). Partnership prospects for the right person.  After hours shared evenly one in four. Salary range according to experience, and new or recent graduates are very welcome to apply.

Interested? Please send a resume with cover letter to Roger Blackwell, or call 0417 322 108 to discuss this position.

Small, affordable mixed practice in brilliant lifestyle location.

Snowy River Vet Clinic is a 2 – 3 vet practice based in the small town of Orbost in eastern Victoria, just 15 km from the coast.

The practice has a very diverse caseload including pets, dairy, beef and a smattering of equine, wildlife and everything else on the Noah’s Ark spectrum. A wide range of small animal surgeries are undertaken for clients who decline referral to a specialist, while bovine work includes outreach trips into the Victorian High Country. If you want a chance to put into practice ALL your vet skills, and are always ready for something new, you will thrive in this practice.

The Location
Orbost is on the National Highway 1, 4.5 hours east of Melbourne and 4 hours south of Canberra. It is on the Snowy River Floodplain, a virtual island of superfertile farming land, surrounded by forest to the west, north and east, and the ocean to the south. The small coastal town of Marlo is 10 minutes drive away. For anyone who loves an outdoor lifestyle, it is an incredible place to live with an extraordinary range of landscapes close by.

Orbost is a welcoming community with an increasingly diverse population as this largely unknown gem is gradually discovered by tree – and sea changers. The town has it’s own hospital, high school and several primary schools; it is well connected to Melbourne by coach / train services and has many sporting clubs and associations. The current ‘undiscovered’ status of the area means house and land real estate is very competitively priced.

The owner
The current owner is looking to semi retire while staying in the area, after living here for the past 20 years and raising a family. He is open to negotiation to remaining as a part -time or casual employee if desired to enable the lifestyle enhancer of a 3rd vet available to the practice without needing to employ 3 vets full time.

The practice was established in 1986 and has been run by the same owner for the last 35 years, principally as a solo practice but sometimes as a 2-vet practice. The practice is modern, well equipped, and superbly located on a corner location on busy Milleara Road. Milleara Road carries over 20,000 vehicles per day (total in both directions). Along with its prominent signage it offers outstanding visibility.

Also, the practice has been run in a relaxed manner over the last 20 years – no after hours, closed for 1-3 weeks annual leave every year, closed on Sundays/Public Holidays and early weekday closing times around 6:30pm.

Well Established Mixed Animal Practice - Profit Sharing Base Senior Vet/Partnership Opportunity/For Sale

A very well established and profitable mixed veterinary business servicing a large region of Central/South-Western Queensland is available for purchase. The business annual income has grown at a constant rate for the previous 4 financial years. The business is only for sale due to changes in owner’s personal direction and required relocation.

This business is a 2.5-3 vet practice, but the scope for expansion is definitely possible. The clinic currently has a very solid and loyal client base across a 5-600km region, and the continued expansion of satellite clinics on a weekly basis to several surrounding towns is growing the caseload on a rapid path. The business has one 3 vet clinic established as the base and operates out of 3 leased satellite clinics and supplies station/property services around these outlying towns on a regular basis.

The caseload is of a true rural mixed practice; all small companion animal medical and surgical work, station and pleasure equine work, and production animal (extensive beef cattle and sheep) are in high demand. Two clinic vehicles would be available to service the out-of-town clients.

The clinic has been recently renovated to include two consultation rooms, a dedicated surgery, hospital ward, wet prep room, and staff office facilities along with a large storage space. There is a two-bedroom flat adjoining the clinic which is suitable for new staff or locum accommodation. There is digital X-ray, a new IDEXX diagnostic suite, BCF ultrasound (2 x Easi-scan machines), VBBSE equipment, 2 x equine/small animal ultrasounds, a portable horse crush on solid trailer for outside dental/repro work and a large amount of both small and large animal surgical equipment available.

The clinic also provides equine work out of a dedicated stable facility detached from the clinic building, with 8 undercover stables, 10 large day yards, room with power, water, air-conditioning and an undercover horse crush facility.

The clinic building/land/stable facilities would be available for separate purchase or lease arrangement if desired.

The current owner would be happy to discuss with interested parties to stay on in some employment capacity to allow a smooth transition if required.

The current owner is also happy to discuss the method of purchase, i.e., outright purchase of business +/- buildings and land, a partnership opportunity or a profit-share based senior vet position that can lead into handover. 

The business price is negotiable and will be very reasonably priced to allow a smoother transition and more inviting business prospect for a potential purchaser.  The owner is also willing to discuss some vendor finance, or vendor guarantor for purchase.

Please direct inquiries/further information requests through to

Main Street Veterinary Clinic

We are growing, and are looking for a full or part time, experienced or new graduate veterinarian to join our team. We are a busy well-established, privately owned 10 vet mixed animal practice in a purpose-built clinic. We are predominantly a small animal clinic with the full range of routine and emergency cases. We also service a large area for cattle, equine and other farm animals extending into the Victorian High Country. A mixed animal vet is preferred but small animal only vets are welcome to apply.

Why choose Main Street

  1. Our team. We have a great team of vets and nurses. Our 10 vets have varied special interests, and many have a vast clinical experience they are happy to share. We have 15 dedicated and professional nurses and 2 office managers to ensure smooth operation of the clinic. We have a diverse and fun team who support one another.
  2. Work life balance. Our full-time vets are rostered for shifts between 9am-5pm or 10am-6pm with an hour lunch break. They enjoy a set half day off each week, are rostered on for 32 hours per week but paid 38. A monthly rostered day off, half days after being on call, and a long weekend following a weekend on call are provided.
  3. The region. We live in a beautiful part of Victoria, and you need time to enjoy it. A well serviced town close to the mountains, lakes and ocean allows our team to enjoy the outdoors. We have team members participating in skiing, hiking, dragon boating, sailing, horse riding, camp drafting, netball, football, soccer, farming, kayaking, and the list goes on. Bairnsdale is located in East Gippsland, approximately 3 hours’ drive from Melbourne on the picturesque Gippsland Lakes. It is the commercial capital of the region with a large and growing population. Bairnsdale is a friendly prosperous town, with a good community feel and has excellent services including hospitals, schools and shopping. Bairnsdale has a mild climate, and has rivers, lakes, and beaches nearby, as well as stunning national parks and snowfields.


  4. The clinic. We are a privately owned, purpose-built hospital with great equipment. These include;
    • 4 consultation rooms, including a cat only waiting area and consultation room
    • Feline, canine, isolation, recovery and outdoor kennels

    • Digital xray machine, IM3 dental xray, IM3 Elite dental machine with ultra LED scaler, endoscopes, a state-of-the-art ultrasound machine and a large animal pregnancy ultrasound
  1. Remuneration. Negotiable based on experience, but well above award. We value the work our vets do and compensate the work they do very well. We have a very low staff turnover and we do what we can to retain our vets and show our appreciation for the sometimes demanding work they do. AVA, VSB, radiation licence, and CPD are covered (as is at least one coffee a week from the visiting barista!) Shared after hours are very well compensated and the support of a second vet and nurse is always available.

Our practice is located in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne (City of Knox). Housed in a converted commercial building, there are two consulting rooms, an admin office and a recently upgraded vet office. Our kennel room can house ten pets and we have also added a separate cat hospital room.

The practice started 28 years ago and has grown to 3.2 FTE vets (two full time, five part time). We don’t work late evenings and we recently stopped doing weekend work so there is scope for expansion of the business if desired, especially as we are currently turning work away many days.

We have a happy, smoothly functioning team of support staff and a large client base that are loyal to the practice.

Equipment of note: new anaesthetic machine, computed radiography, in-house blood testing, new autoclave, computer software readily adaptable to your program of choice.
