Hello there! Thanks for clicking on us!

Are you tired of your old job and getting stale due to the repetitive caseloads? Are you looking to bring your skillset and knowledge to the next level? Do you feel underpaid at your current job and is looking for a more competitive package? Or are you just getting out of vet school and looking to embark on your exciting vet journey?

At Advanced Vetcare, we do understand all the challenges of being a vet here in our sunny island. We do believe in change, and we always strive to improve in our quality of care for the patients while achieving good work-life balance and fair remuneration for our staff. Currently, we are looking to hire vets at our centrally located Balestier branch. This is our newly opened branch, and we are looking to expand our Balestier vet team. Our main branch is located in Bedok which is a 24h emergency practice.

So what is it like working at AVC Balestier?

At this branch we have a good first opinion caseloads and general health checks which is the best place to build up good rapport with clients. At the Balestier branch, despite having a higher caseload for first opinion patients, we do occasionally get referral cases. Also, we see a variety of species which can range from dogs and cats to small furries and birds as well. On a monthly basis, we do organize clinical rounds to benefit both vets and nurses to continue brushing up our knowledge and to grow as a clinic to provide high standards of care.

Benefits of working at AVC Balestier?

Aside from the interesting caseloads, our friendly boss and surgeon Dr Nick has a Membership in Small Animal Surgery. He has a high surgical caseload that covers most soft tissue, oncology and orthopaedic cases. This is the perfect opportunity to impart some of his skills as he loves inspiring young minds. On top of that, internal referral to our 24h branch is fairly straightforward, and you will be able to easily track the progress of your patient between the branch. Also, this can be a good opportunity to progress towards the emergency branch if you would like to challenge yourself further (subjected to approval). We are a firm believer that continual education is fundamental, and we do financially provide for CE programs that you have chosen to participate in. Lastly, we are introducing an induction program for new vets joining our team, to allow your transition into working with us as smooth and comfortable as possible.

Opportunity to live and work in paradise

An established mobile veterinary practice is available in the capital city Suva. This practice is expat owned and was started four years ago. The business has gradually increased in capabilities and clientele over the years without advertising. It has been profitable every year while allowing for a comfortable living standard for the vet.

This is currently a single vet practice that allows for travel around the Fiji Islands with most of the work within Suva. This is a perfect practice for someone who enjoys working in a relaxed environment that allows for a good amount of time to work with clients and patients. Vet couples would do well. The lack of resources in the area can be challenging, so experience in such circumstances would be advantageous. The practice is completely mobile with a small home office used for mostly administrative and storage purposes. There is plenty of potential for expansion and increased workload/revenue if desired.

The practice is complete with capabilities for cytology, ultrasound, dental machine, blood gas (EPOC machine) and portable gas anaesthesia with basic monitoring equipment. The vehicle is a new H1 Hyundai Van that was purchased less than a year ago and well maintained. Radiographs and complicated surgeries, or hospitalization can be organized with other clinics. Laboratory facilities are limited, but options do exist. The business has a website and good veterinary software that are easy to work with.

This is a great opportunity for an experienced veterinarian who enjoys adventure and living on a tropical island. The current owner is planning to leave due to a change in personal circumstances and is willing to help the perspective owner transition into the position and provide support as needed to ensure a successful transition. The practice is being offered for $175k FJD.

Veterinary help needed in Indonesian Borneo

Help improve animal welfare in Indonesia by sharing your skills and experience!

Facility and Program Description:
Kawasan Wisata Pendidikan Lingkungan Hidup (KWPLH) is an environmental education center located in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. The facility’s goal is to increase environmental awareness and animal welfare. In addition to our animal programmes, the facility has several education buildings, picnic areas and playgrounds. To see a full description of the KWPLH’s facilities and goals visit or email us.

KWPLH provides a wonderful accommodation in the form of a forested enclosure for 6 sun bears rescued from the illegal pet trade. Sun bears are the mascot of Balikpapan, and many of our current education programs focus on this species.

Our Domestic Animal Program was created in response to the frequent dumping of kittens/puppies at KWPLH. We have attempted to establish a safe home for abandoned animals and a sterilization and adoption program. We currently have 125+ cats under our care as well as close to 30 dogs, and occasionally take care of other rescued wildlife species whenever brought to the center (macaque, civets, slow loris, birds).

The goals of our Domestic Animal Program are:

Experienced Volunteer Vet Needed
We are in need of experienced veterinarian to assist with training and development of our local animal care team. The primary goal is to further train up our team [specifically our local veterinarian] in specialist medical care for our animals, under more or less challenging conditions, and to train our Indonesian animal care-taking staff in mastering necessary skills and knowledge on specialist issues that need frequent treatments.

Other tasks include ideas on improvement of our medical administration and records, enrichment and training programs, and enhancing our adoption programme. There will be work with the sun bears and other wild species, but most time will go to our domestic animals and staff training.

Outlined below is a list of topics that we need help with:

For more details about KWPLH and the veterinary position please email us!

We welcome the help from professional veterinarian in 2022-2023. The position is preferably for 3+ months, but do e-mail us as well if you are available for shorter periods. Free housing is provided at the center, but a small local catering fee is required for meals. A volunteer visa will need to be applied for at a small cost. Couples are also welcome to apply.

Please send end questions and resumes to Gabriella Fredriksson:

Join a wonderful team in a small private practice in Siem Reap Cambodia as a volunteer for whatever period suits you. 

This is an amazing opportunity for an adaptable vet to really make a difference, while experiencing a new culture and amazing tropical climate.  Our case-load is mainly cats and dogs with occasional wildlife treatment.  Surgical competence is a huge advantage as we currently have an experienced veterinary nurse seeing the consultations, but is unable to provide surgery. This position will require seeing consultations as well as surgery. No previous exotic disease experience is necessary, we can teach you how to recognise these diseases and how to treat them.

Our practice is involved in education, rabies eradication (  and other issues that impact human health and animal health/welfare.  Help us grow our practice so we can help more patients and contribute more to this beautiful community.

We are currently open Monday-Friday, 9-5, with a lunch break and no on call hours at this time. Enjoy evenings (and lunchtimes)  in one of Cambodia’s many hotel swimming pools.

Siem Reap is a vibrant and fascinating town with a low cost of living. Cambodia is open to travellers with all of the population vaccinated against COVID. Come and see for yourself, we'd all love to meet you! Photo credit for the stunning Angkor Wat temple image:

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.
