Veterinary Surgeon required at McMurtry & Harding, Ashbourne, Derbyshire
For our small animal vets the day is split between consultations and surgery time. We strongly believe that client care is foremost and for this reason we offer 15 minute appointments affording our vets the time to connect with our clients. Orthopaedic and laparoscopy surgery is com-mon within the practice and anyone wanting to specialise in specific disciplines would be fully supported.
Our practice is a large purpose built facility located on the edge of the historical town of Ashbourne, the gateway to the Peak District. We have
3 consult rooms, 2 fully equipped operating theatres, a digital x-ray room and separate dog, cat & isolation wards. Our in-house laboratory is fully kitted with modern Ideex equipment enabling us to do our own bioche-mistry, haematology and endocrinology testing.
We are proud to offer our own out of hours service which enables us to provide the best possible animal care and continuity of service.
We have ample parking and being in a rural area you'll never get caught up in the rush hour traffic. Having the Peak District on our doorstep means you can spend your evenings unwinding in the beautiful country-side or running, cycling and training for triathlons as some of our more energetic staff seem to do.
