JOB DESCRIPTION

Western Equine Veterinary Services are seeking a veterinarian (full time, part time, or casual) to join our team in the western suburbs of Melbourne.

We are a predominantly equine practice servicing Melbourne’s west for over 50 years. We have a varied caseload including standardbred and some thoroughbred racetrack practice, polo, pleasure/performance horse care, reproduction, and a small amount of hobby farm / small animal care. Our primary base/office is within a small animal clinic in Werribee from which we service an approximate 50km radius W/NW/SW of us. We also have a purpose built facility on 3 acres in Werribee South, near the Werribee Park Equestrian Centre, where we offer some in patient and reproductive services.

We have all the necessary equipment for elite level mobile equine practice – including cordless digital xray, ultrasound, endoscope, power dental floats, etc. We use modern mobile cloud based practice management software - ezyvet. If specialised diagnostics and/or treatment is required we work very closely with the University of Melbourne Equine Centre, located just 2km from our office. We also receive referrals back from the hospital to our Werribee South facilities for post surgical rehab and on going case management.

Our location offers a great lifestyle balance. Being just 25 minutes drive from the Melbourne cbd we have the advantage of being able to live in the city’s inner suburbs (and reap all the cultural/lifestyle benefits of this) whilst escaping the city to do our work. We pride ourselves on managing client expectations and select the work we do carefully to not put unachievable/unsustainable workloads on our staff. We also limit our service to a small radius so we are not driving excessive distances.

The position available is for an ambulatory veterinarian. Duties include diagnostic workup and treatment of health conditions, treatment of injuries, lameness/poor performance assessment and treatment, reproductive ultrasound and AI, dentistry and other preventative health care services. Our vets are only expected to perform routine duties during sociable business hours – 8.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. We do not expect vets to work at race meets, or other events outside of business hours. Applicants are required to be available on call, on weekends and out of hours for emergencies only, on a 1 in 4 rotation.

Applicants with at least 12 months post graduate equine veterinary experience are preferred, however those with a strong background with large animals, not necessarily equine, will also be considered. Applicants should be eligible for registration by the Victorian Veterinary Practitioners Registration Board and be a current Australian resident or visa holder.

Salary package is in the range of $90,000 – $130,000 commensurate with experience (inclusive of base wage, overtime payments, superannuation, on call retainers + afterhours commission, cpd/conference registration, +/- 4wd vehicle for private use). This is pro-rate for permanent part time, and 25% loading applies for casual. Full time applicants have the option to accrue rdo’s, or even work a set 4 day (35 hour) week, if they’d prefer to take time off as an alternative in lieu of overtime and/or on call retainer.
