Small Animal Vet

Are you keen to escape the pressures of corporate practice? Would you like to drive to work where the worst traffic delays are haywagons or cattle crossing? Would you like to work somewhere that put clients and patients first?

We have just won the “Best Place to Work” business award in the beautiful Blackmore Vale in Dorset, and we’re looking for a small animal vet to join us due to upcoming retirement and expansion. The position would be ideal for an experienced vet, however we would consider a confident and enthusiastic new graduate.

Our mixed practice has served the local community for the past 60 years and we have a lovely and loyal clientele. Our 3 sites locations in North Dorset ensure a mixture of pampered pets to working farm and gun dogs providing a varied, diverse and challenging caseload.

The out of hours rota is shared equally among 5.5 vets and we pride ourselves on being a supportive, cohesive group of vets, nurses and support staff where everyone is important in the successful running of our practice. As an independent XLVets practice we encourage clinical freedom and promote high standards with CPD and certificate study generously funded.

For more information please contact Justine Turnbull, Practice Manager or Andrew Hooker, Director on 01258 472314 or email

The level of support, knowledge and understanding goes above and beyond, from all [the Friars Moor team].
