What would it be like to work with us?
Our Preston clinic is equipped with in-house pathology, up to date surgery and dental equipment, 2 consult rooms, sterile surgery, digital x-ray room and designated cat and dog wards. Our Coburg clinic has dental x-rays and a doppler blood pressure in addition to all the above. Both benefit from internal medicine and surgical consulting specialists.

We are a close and fun team of 4 nurses and 4 vets working across both clinics. We are extremely driven and hardworking; we believe a can-do attitude goes a long way and make sure we are always supporting one another in every way we can. We pride ourselves on our focus on communication and as a result we host regular team and vet meetings as well as regular casual on-on-one sessions. We also firmly believe a good laugh can do wonders and consequently coffee runs as well as take-away lunches, pizza and trivia nights are regular occurrences.
