Our client is a large, friendly, long-established practice, close to the beautiful Ayrshire coast with convenient road and rail links to Glasgow and central Scotland. They are now looking for a Full Time Registered Veterinary Nurse to join them.

The client has 3 branches in the local area, with dedicated teams providing small animal, equine, and farm veterinary services. The area provides an excellent base for those enjoying outdoor pursuits including equine sports, water sports, cycling, hill-walking, and golf.

The practice has all the usual gadgets including digital and dental radiography, multiparameter anaesthetic monitoring machines, ultrasonography including colour doppler, endoscopy, ECG and electrocautery. Additionally, they run a comprehensive in-house laboratory that includes: FNA cytology, full haematology and biochemistry, as well as Idexx Catalyst for in-house cortisol, CRP, fructosamine and progesterone. They also carry out in-house urinalysis which includes dipstick, specific gravity, microscopy and urine protein:creatinine ratio. All of this is facilitated by a daily dedicated lab nurse allowing efficient and rapid work-up of cases in-house.

There is a team of 14 full and part-time Veterinary Surgeons, including Cardiology, Surgery and Medicine certificate holders, as well as plenty of proud general practitioners.  There are 12 full and part-time Registered Veterinary Nurses, 4 Animal Nursing Assistants, and 9 Reception team members working within the dedicated Small Animal Team. They have a friendly and welcoming team who will support you at every turn and care deeply about the quality of care and welfare of their patients. They are also a VetsNow OOH host practice, meaning that patients requiring 24-hour hospitalisation can be kept in-house without the need for organising transportation of potentially sick animals or those still recovering from anaesthetic.

They are seeking a dedicated, caring, and motivated Registered Veterinary Nurse to join the team, and in return they offer great support, exciting career development and a healthy work-life balance. The client is open to either full-time or part-time applicants. Opening hours are 8:30am-7:00pm Monday-Friday, and 8:30am -1:00pm Saturday. They are a Vets Now host practice, so there are no out-of-hours requirements for the role.

There is no such thing as a typical day, no two days are the same with a varied and interesting caseload. They encourage their Nurses to be fully involved in all aspects of nursing and to fully utilise their skills. The Nurse shifts include consultations, assisting the operating Veterinary Surgeon, lab work, and dispensing prescriptions.
