Why choose this job

Located on the beautiful Central Coast of NSW – plenty of beaches and bush walks to enjoy. Only a short drive from Sydney and also close to Newcastle. Tuggerah Veterinary Clinic has been caring for pets, wildlife and (occasionally) livestock on the NSW Central Coast since 1999. Our team is committed to providing a friendly, caring and professional veterinary service. The majority of our patient load consists of companion animals – dogs and cats. We also treat a variety of exotic pets (including birds, ferrets, guinea pigs, rats, mice and rabbits). Our client base is varied, but includes a significant breeder clientele, plus we have expertise in feline medicine and ferrets. Our services include general consultation and examinations, vaccinations, tumour and cancer, soft tissue, ophthalmic and orthopaedic surgeries, dentistry, anaesthesia and microchipping. We have an extensive range of modern medical equipment such as an x-ray machine & digital processor, dental unit, ultrasound, multi-parameter monitoring and a full surgery.
