Tern Vets was established over 100 years ago as a mixed practice in Market Drayton. Today we have our original site in this busy market town and a sister practice in the neighbouring town of Newport, Shropshire. Both buildings are purpose built and house a friendly team with a family feel. WE have well equipped consulting rooms, 2 operating theatres at each site, imaging suite with xray ultrasound and endoscopy, laparoscopic bitch spay equipment, Tonopen and dental facilities. North Shropshire has the advantage of being rural and beautiful, perfect for dog walking, horse riding, wild water swimming, mountain biking etc., whilst being within easy access of Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool, for night life, shopping, concerts and airports. The larger city of Chester and town of Shrewsbury are also an easy commute.
Be part of something exceptional
We have a full time equivalent of 6 vets, made up of full and part time team members and 7 RVNs plus excellent student nurses from Harper Keele University. Vets and nurses are supported by an experienced and amazing reception team. Our veterinary team holds certificates in Feline Medicine, Small Animal Medicine, Surgery, Nutrition and Cardiology currently in progress. The successful candidate will be welcomed, well supported where necessary but also given clinical freedom. We are a current, progressive and collaborative practice who strive to keep looking forward with high standards and a client focus. We are cat friendly and work hard to ensure that our patients feel as comfortable as possible, even if that means consulting in the carpark or waiting room. Many of our clients are long standing and we work hard to foster great relationships with them.
