PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA - SMALL ANIMALS

Embark on an adventure with Animal Doctors International!

We all embark on our Veterinary career expecting it to be a rewarding, dream job. The reality can often be different and lead to frustration, disillusionment and even burnout.

At Animal Doctors International we are acutely aware of the dream vs reality. We endeavour to create an untouchable work-life balance to ensure you can do your best work with the animals we care for.

How?
4 day work week. Yes it includes emergency cover but we understand that this needs to be compensated. While overtime is rare, when it does happen – days in lieu are applied.

Facilities. Our “oldest” hospital is just 3 years old! They are all kitted out with digital x-ray, ultrasound, dental x-ray, cloud based software (paper free!), label printers, immunofluorescence, microscopy, fluid & syringe pumps, BP machines, gas anaesthesia, monitoring equipment, electrocautery, isolation wards, capnograph, ventilator, endoscopy, laser machine, separate cat and dog facility – we are ISFM accredited! See: https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=Eqjq32Z1uLA

Support. This is a hospital run by vets. We understand the pressures and demands of the job. We put patient care first. This means that we allocate up to 40 minutes per consult, ensuring clear communication with clients which helps develop trust between vet and client. This enables our vets to work up cases fully and create the best treatment plans. Our reception and junior vets are fully trained to ensure the day runs as efficiently and smoothly as possible. We have a team of 12 international vets and 20 junior vets with interests and certificates in different areas. This means that our vets always have a huge depth of experience and knowledge to draw on. With our cloud based clinical software and internal messaging system, our team can access cases and give advice and guidance no matter where we are based. We believe that the best patient care happens when our vets feel confident with the team around them. Our clinical director is always available and ready to step in when needed.

Outreach. Being based in a developing country, means that animal welfare is not always a priority. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to change that. We work with both local charities and international NGOs. Our vets regularly take part in TNR campaigns and also disappear into the jungle to take care of elephants when needed!

Fun. We have lots of fun. It's the only way to get through the day sometimes! Our team has a terrific sense of humour, especially when it comes to the hilarious miscommunications that naturally happen in a multicultural environment! After work drinks are compulsory and are always great craic!

As for the life part… that takes care of itself! We are spoiled living in South East Asia. All our hospitals are located in vibrant, chaotic cities with a profound history and unique culture. When we need a break from city life, a short flight can take you to mountain trekking in Sapa or a white, sandy beach in Phuket. Our team is young and dynamic and loves to help our new arrivals settle in and experience the culture as a local should!

Perks:

Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our Vet’s have to say:
My journey with Animal Doctors International started with a phone call from Dr Tara during my travels through South East Asia. Shortly after, I met members of the team and participated in their desexing project in Laos, which sparked my interest in working in this unexpected new environment.

After a while of working in Laos, I relocated to work in their new clinic in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Apart from the daily tasks and challenges as a (newly graduated) vet, I also saw myself confronted with the language barrier and cultural differences. Being a sole charge veterinarian for sure tested my abilities in many ways and created a certain performance pressure, however, I never truly felt alone, thanks to a supportive team of international vets within ADI just a phone call or message away.

All of this forced me to work more creatively, and independently and helped me gain a better understanding of people and myself. I strongly believe it was a great opportunity for steep professional as well as personal development and growth that I wouldn’t have gone through in a regular Western working environment. On top of all that, I got to live, experience and explore this beautiful country in my time off! Living and working abroad was one of the best decisions for me, and I would highly recommend it to anyone – Dr Cynthia

We have attempted to establish a safe home for abandoned animals and a sterilization and adoption program. We currently have 110+ 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).

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:

We welcome the help from professional veterinarians in 2024-2025. The position is preferably for 3+ months, but do e-mail us as well if you are available for shorter periods.

FOR SALE - VET PRACTICE IN THE KOOTENAY ROCKIES

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.
