They require enthusiastic first opinion veterinary surgeons to join the 17 other vets across the team each having different areas of special interest.

There is the large hospital and 4 branch surgeries all fully equipped with technology including Ultrasound, Digital X-Ray, dental X- Ray and shared radiology units.
