We are seeking an Equine Veterinarian with predominantly stud based clinical experience. The ideal candidate will have well established skills in the area of reproduction and foal medicine. An interest in yearling sales work (both preparation & on site sales services) and sport medicine would be considered favourably.
Gundy Veterinary Services provides resident based veterinary care for Arrowfield Stud, Scone in the Upper Hunter Valley of New South Wales, Australia. Arrowfield Stud is one of Australia’s leading thoroughbred breeding operations, with 11 stallions and 270-300 mares foaling per year. The stud is one of the largest consignors of yearlings in the country with large drafts at most major sales. The state of the art Arrowfield Training Centre, adjacent to the stud is home to Paul Messara Racing where a string of Thoroughbreds are broken and trained including pre-training for some of Sydney and Melbourne’s leading trainers.
The position involves sole responsibility for the reproductive medicine of approximately half of the broodmare band and general veterinary care of their offspring year round. Veterinary care of yearlings during sales preparation, as well as a limited amount of sport medicine at the racing stables provides for a varied and year-round work load. The onsite veterinary practice is well equipped with laboratory facilities, digital radiology, ultrasonography, video-endoscopy, and a Shock wave machine. Onsite medical management of mid-level ICU is catered for. An experienced veterinary nurse forms an integral part of our small team.
Gundy Veterinary Clinic works closely with two of Australia’s major equine referral practices for second opinion, surgical referral services, and mentoring.
The Hunter Valley offers a pleasant country lifestyle with several options for junior and senior school, a good range of sporting and recreational facilities. We are 3 hours from Sydney.
A generous remuneration package commensurate with experience is on offer. A car, phone and accommodation are routinely offered with the package.
Interested veterinarians should email their applications including a letter of intent, curriculum vitae and the names of two referees to Dr Wendy Perriam at: Wendy@arrowfield.com.au or PO Box 397 Scone, NSW, 2337 Australia. All applications will be in confidence.
