A position has become available in New Zealand for an Equine Veterinarian with a strong interest and passion for track practice and performance horse medicine. Experience in lameness diagnosis, performance and sports medicine would be a strong advantage
Marks Ewen Equine Veterinary Hospital was established in 1961 and has been offering quality equine veterinary services in the Waikato ever since. At present it has developed to a fully equipped equine referral hospital and first opinion practice located on 5 acres on the outskirts of Matamata. It is a growing practice with 8 veterinarians, 7 support staff including qualified nurses and experienced administration staff. The practice has an internship program with interns rotating through the hospital and ambulatory services. The client base is almost exclusively thoroughbred stud, racing stables and sales work client base but there is also a significant and growing sport horse sector.
The hospital offers full surgical services and seasonal neonatal intensive care services using state of art diagnostic equipment that include in and out house laboratory services, digital radiography, ultrasound, video and dynamic endoscopy, arthroscopy and shared gamma scintigraphy.
Matamata is centrally located in the heart of the Waikato on the North Island of New Zealand. It is the picturesque thoroughbred and dairy centre of New Zealand. Matamata is an extremely pleasant town with all amenities. However Mountain skiing, Lake Taupo, Rotorua and East Coast beaches are only a short drive away and close to larger urban centres such as Tauranga, Hamilton and Auckland.
