WestVETS Animal Hospitals, Anstead and Marburg, Queensland

WestVETS Equine Hospital is offering an internship starting in June/July/August 2024; the internship can either be a 6 or 12 month in length. This is a rotating internship focusing on developing recent graduates into well-rounded equine clinicians with the ability to retain and build upon small animal skills. This is a unique internship that is hard to match, the intern will gain a broad range of clinical skills to prepare them for whichever road they choose to take as a veterinarian. Our practice emphasizes a team approach to cases and interns will have strong mentorship from all of the veterinarians in the practice.

WestVETS Animal Hospitals are ideally located in South East Queensland. We are 30 minutes to downtown Brisbane, 1 hour to the Gold Coast and 1.5 hours to the Sunshine Coast.

The Equine Hospital caseload has a good variety of cases; colics (both surgical and medical), ophthalmology (ulcers, conjunctival grafts, stromal abscesses), neonates (septic and dummy foals), orthopaedic (arthroscopy, fracture repair, arthrodesis), soft tissue surgery (laparoscopy, upper airway) wounds and medical cases (liver disease, weight loss, diarrhea etc). The clinicians also see a high number of lameness cases (fully equipped with a lameness locator) and prepurchase exams. We also have a very high caseload of routine calls such as dentals including dental extractions and run a very busy routine and emergency ambulatory service. The Equine Reproduction Centre is located at Marburg, interns are able to gain some exposure to the assisted reproduction such as artificial insemination, embryo transfer and stallion collection. Interns have exposure to a wide variety of patients including racehorses to companion ponies to Olympic calibre athletes. There is also a moderate caseload of camelids, small ruminants and cattle that are seen both in the hospital and on the road. Graduate veterinarians will be confident to walk into any equine or mixed practice with a solid start to their careers.

The intern will have exposure to first opinion small animal consults such as vaccinations, snake bites/rat bait/tick cases, desexing, wounds and general medicine cases. Both the Equine Hospital and Reproduction Unit have a small animal clinic associated with it; the amount of small animal exposure can be tailored to each individual intern.

Yulong Stud has a position within the veterinary team of our business. Working alongside our four resident vets, you will cover all aspects of a 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 seven resident stallions and 700 broodmares with over 350 foals to yearlings. Consigning yearlings at all major sales throughout Australia, and a racing team of 200 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 veterinary nurses and stud support staff. 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, mid-trimester placental scans, 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 will 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 100 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.
