Award Winning Practice in South Australia Requires a Fulltime Veterinarian
Pet Universe is a progressive, high quality, small animal veterinary practice located 10 minutes from Adelaide's CBD. With many years of veterinary experience, we have become an employer and practice of choice and Telstra Small Business Awards SA 2013 & 2015 Finalists. We were the recipients of the Australian Veterinary Associations coveted Small Animal Practice of Excellence in 2015.
Do You Have A Special Interest in Feline Medicine, Surgery or Radiology?
We are keen to talk to veterinarians with a special interest in feline medicine, surgery, canine rehabilitation and radiology as well as all-rounders. Opportunities exist for further training and study in these areas. We are an ISFM Gold Cat Accredited Hospital at Pet Universe Broadview.
Dr Oberle's thoughts on the main benefits of working at Pet Universe:
"I would stress that our nurses are highly qualified as I feel this is a huge benefit to us as vets. I would also mention that the environment is very supportive and although every vet will have primary case responsibility, there is always another doctor around to confer with, if needed. I feel this is one of the best aspects of Pet Universe and one of the most valuable both for us as vets and for our clients. Even now after 9 years with PU, the supportive work environment is still extremely important and my job satisfaction depends on it. Most of the staff members get along so well that we will plan social events with each other which creates more of a friendly and "family" atmosphere" Dr. Kat Oberle, D.V.M.
What Does Pet Universe Stand For?
We believe in offering the very best healthcare in an innovative, professional, caring, enjoyable, consistent and value-for-money way. That's why all our wellness procedures are designed to be affordable without compromising our standards so all routine procedures include pre-G.A.s and I.V. fluids capnography and blood pressure monitoring as standard. In addition, our standard consults are 20 minutes long or 30 minutes for new clients. That's why we have a large number of qualified veterinary nurses and dedicated Client Relations team members. We were the first Practice in Adelaide to offer Kitten Kindy, one of the few to offer acupuncture and the first hospital to offer Medivet's™ Stem Cell Therapy. We have performed over 50stem cell treatments on cats and dogs in the last 18 months and the results are outstanding. Lastly, we have some really great clients who want to do the best for their pets and say "Yes" to our treatment recommendations.
So How Do We All Stay In Touch?
Dr Chris Lee runs fortnightly vet meetings where both clinical and non-clinical issues are discussed in an informal setting. All the team get together once a month for a three-hour Practice Meeting on a Wednesday afternoon from 1- 4 p.m. to receive Practice updates, clinical updates and training sessions on a number of different topics. Socially, there always seems to be something going on with many of the team catching up outside of work to play squash, go scuba diving, fishing or relaxing at the pub.
