“Wonderful caring staff, excellent customer service. All in all an amazing place to take your pets to.”

"We have recently been visiting vets4pets with our new puppy and we couldn’t be happier with the care we have received. Professional, friendly and more than happy to answer the hundreds of questions I keep thinking of."


Our clients love us and we think you will too!

Vets4Pets Farnborough are looking for a friendly and confident Lead Veterinary Surgeon to join our busy and successful practice. The practice opened in 2011 and over the last 9 years, has built a strong and loyal client base and excellent reputation in the local area. We even have one of our clients bringing us fruit and veg!

As part of this 3-4 Vet practice you will be joining a welcoming and experienced team of 3 RVN’s  and supported by a dedicated team of SVN’s and VCA’s and Receptionists. The practice believes strongly in investing in people, so would be keen to support the right candidate with professional development.

As a purpose built small animal practice, the surgery is equipped with modern surgical and diagnostic equipment including digital x-ray, ultrasound, Idexx catalyst analyser, diathermy, lactate analyser and Cardiopet ECG among other equipment. The practice also recently invested in a refurbishment of their waiting area to improve their patient and client experience.

Farnborough is situated in north east Hampshire near the boundary with Surrey. It is located 34 miles (55 km) south west of London which is easily accessible by car or train and 16 miles (26 km) east of Basingstoke. Farnborough is served by three train stations giving access into London, and to the South including directly to Gatwick Airport for easy access to Europe and further afield. Being situated near to the South Downs National Park with its large rural areas and only an hour from the south coast, makes this an ideal location for those wishing to combine urban convenience with rural and coastal access.

Person Specification

We have a very exciting opportunity within our team for someone who is looking to take the next step in their career as a Lead Vet. Applicants will be confident with all routine surgical and medical cases and special interests will be welcomed and supported.

The practice offers clinical freedom and the opportunity to work with a varied and loyal client base, working up cases to a high standard.

Due to the capabilities within the team and the age of the practice, their caseload is varied with no two days being the same! Their new vets will be confident with all routine surgical and medical cases and enjoy building relationships with patients, clients and the team.

This is a Full Time role with a weekend rota rota of 1 in 3, which will be sole charge.


In return for your hard work, the practice offers:
