Associate Equine Veterinarian

Our practice is looking for an additional equine vet to join our team. We are a mixed animal practice of 6 – 7 vets on any one day, in Deloraine, northern Tasmania. Our varied caseload is facilitated by excellent equipment, and for equine we have a new hospital and theatre which is now Tasmania’s only equine surgical facility. Most of our vets do some equine work, but we are seeking an additional vet who is keen to focus on equine, ideally with a racing bias. Most vets work a four-day week, but work hours are negotiable. Afterhours is shared with an average roster of 1 in 6. An ability to do mixed afterhours would be amazing but not essential. We also take turns vetting at the races, the trots and local ODE’s.

We have a varied equine caseload and receive referrals from all over the state. These include lameness exams, complicated medicine cases requiring extensive workup and / or hospitalisation, varied surgical cases, and complicated dental extractions. The horse industry is thriving in Tasmania, and we provide service across racing, competition and pleasure horses. A large proportion of thoroughbreds from Tasmania are bred in the Meander Valley. If you ride and compete there are clinics or competitions to go to most weekends.

Our lead equine vet is the current EVA representative for Tasmania, has memberships in equine practice and equine surgery, and was a clinical tutor for Melbourne University so loves to teach and mentor.  Surgical specialists Dr Hadley Willsalen or Dr Nick Kannegieter take turns coming down every 3 - 4 weeks to do specialist surgeries, but we do plenty of surgery in between. We are equipped to perform colic surgery, caesareans, arthroscopies, foal intensive care. We have a dental trailer, ligasure, gastroscopy and wonderful ultrasounds for doing echocardiography and abdominal ultrasound.

Our ideal applicant would be an experienced equine vet who wants to get involved in all aspects of ambulatory and hospital practice, but the job can be tailored to particular areas of interest. It would particularly suit a capable ambulatory vet wanting to expand their skill set with advanced diagnostic work ups, anaesthesia, intensive care and reproduction including ET.

Salary $100,000 plus, with generous after-hours remuneration.
