Working as an emergency Vet Surgeon will expose you to an interesting range of cases that you simply won’t see in general practice. As a Vet Surgeon at Vets Now Portsmouth you will benefit from the ongoing mentorship and there is a strong support network.

Working out-of-hours doesn’t mean working all hours
