Heath Equine Veterinary Practice is an independently owned ambulatory equine practice that opened at the end of 2020. Our clientele is focused around Cheshire, Shropshire, North Wales and the Wirral. Most of our larger clients, and therefore our routine work is based between Chester and Market Drayton. Our aim is to provide outstanding veterinary care to all of our patients. Since opening almost a year ago, we have received an overwhelmingly positive response, and are now in need of a 6th experienced vet.

The routine work encompasses multiple large racing yards (Flat and National Hunt) where orthopaedic examinations, respiratory endoscopy and poor performance investigations feature heavily as well as routine yard management. In addition, we have multiple smaller show- jumping, event and hunting yards which will also provide an array of interesting cases. This job would be well-suited to someone who has or is working towards a further qualification in orthopaedics and basic surgery.

We have portable digital radiography (Quattro Slate), ultrasound (Logic E Scanner), Endoscopy (MedVeiw Upper airway endoscope and gastroscope), Neovet shockwave and battery-operated dental gear plus nurse/vet tech support to provide services on yard. We are looking for vets who are 'people people' with solid communication skills and a real passion for patient and client care. Our practice strives to be friendly and approachable, with a strong teamwork ethic, so we are looking for a like-minded person.
