We are searching for a vet to join our lovely team on the beautiful island of Guernsey.

Our 98% companion animal practice provides all the necessary equipment and facilities, including CT and hydrotherapy, to look after the large numbers of animals owned by our discerning clientele.

There is the advantage of 4.5 day week, a 1 in 8 on call rota and support by all team members including Certificate holders in surgery and equine subjects. We also have Vet GDP advisers.

Vets can work and develop in the area where they have most interest but also have the support of colleagues in areas where there is less experience. There is the opportunity to work up your own cases, to have days to operate, consult and do visits, something we feel is essential for personal development.
