This job is no longer accepting applications.

VetEnt Ranfurly is a small, friendly & fun team who enjoy helping each other, laughing and getting the job done. We have a great shared after-hours roster. Our caseload varies with sheep, beef cattle, deer, horses, a handful of dairy farms, lifestyle blocks, and large variety of small animal work, including working dog orthopaedics.

To accommodate our small animal caseload, we have a digital x-ray machine, in-house biochemistry and electrolyte analyser, and the ability to perform Ossability TTA surgery in-house. From a large animal perspective, we are proactive with animal health planning with a wonderful loyal client base and you have the opportunity to work with the Ranfurly vets (David Dodd & Becks Smith) who have 40+ years combined of rural mixed practice experience.

To the job you’ll bring solid experience as a Mixed Animal Veterinarian, with an interest in Small Animals and be comfortable doing all the things you’d expect, such as consultations, clinical diagnosis, farm service work and surgery. You’ll be a team player, but also happy to work independently and will have the opportunity to upskill in areas of your own interest. As well as empathy and a focus on animal wellness, you’ll have a real flair for working with our clients and looking after them as well as their animals.

Our Ranfurly clinic collaborates with the other VetEnt clinics in the Otago region giving you the ability to leverage the collegial networks and support structures from across the national company, meaning you have the benefit of a wider team, while focussing on growing your own part of the business. You’ll also find an array of career advancement opportunities including training support, CPD, clinic exchanges and involvement in our subsidiary operations such as StockCare, VetEnt Research and PureMilk.

VetEnt is one of New Zealand’s largest veterinary groups, and we’re united by our passion for animal care. Based in Ranfurly, in the heart of Central Otago, you’ll be able to make the most of your life off the clock as well. All the scenery and outdoor sports that the South Island is famous for are right outside your door – and you’ll be welcomed into a friendly small-town community with a relaxed lifestyle.
