  1. Herefordshire, Kington - 12 vet mixed animal practice, Locum mid August to mid October photos New

KINGTON, HEREFORDSHIRE - MIXED Locum mid August to mid October New Position

Locum vet cover needed - mid August to mid October 2023
Kington, Herefordshire.

Our team would like to welcome an experienced mixed practice locum vet to join them in their rural idyll on the beautiful Herefordshire / Mid Wales Border to help cover extended leave of two of our vets.

Arrowfield Veterinary Practice is proud to be an independent, employee owned, rural mixed practice providing a vital community service.

We can offer a genuine mixed and varied caseload of 60% small animal, 40% farm / Equine.

Our farm work is predominantly suckler and sheep farms with a significant number of pedigree herds and flocks alongside our large and small scale commercial farms and some smallholders. We actively promote preventative health care on our farms but also enjoy the fun and challenges that calving and lambing brings.

Our small animal department has separate cat and dog wards, separate scrub area, a large prep room with two theatres, separate dental and separate imaging room with DR XRay and high spec Ultrasound scanners. We have all the relevant equipment and experience to care for our small animal patients to a very high standard with 15 minute consults to allow plenty of time with each client.

Our equine is predominantly pleasure horses with good ties to our local referral centres as required.

We cover our own OOH supported by our fabulous team of nurses on weekends and bank holidays, reducing the workload significantly for our 2nd call vet. We believe in continuing to provide this all round service to our community. There is significant time off in the working week to reflect the on call commitment.

Pay is negotiable depending on experience and accommodation will be provided and a car available for private use.

Although we need a locum for the full 2 months shorter periods of availability will be considered.

For more information and to apply, please email Paul Buckingham
