The Directors and Staff of Tropical Vet Services


Tropical Vet Services are seeking several experienced Vets. 

Come and work in the Northern Tropics of Queensland. Escape the southern states where you can enjoy the sun, rainforest, Great Barrier Reef, and much, much more, without COVID-19 lockdowns and other restrictions!

Experienced Vets are being sought for vacancies at several of our clinics for those that are wanting to relocate to our beautiful part of the world.   

Tropical Vet Services is a privately owned group of clinics based on the North Queensland tropical coast between Babinda (to the North) and Ayr (to the South).  We have five full-service clinics and three, smaller satellite clinics.

All of our clinics are mixed animal clinics and our five main clinics are set up with full in-house blood machines, digital xray, ultrasounds (small and large animal), endoscopes etc.

Our group of practices currently employ 19 Veterinarians across our clinics.  

Their interests include 

- Small Animal orthopaedics (including cruciates and fracture repairs)

- Bovine Reproduction (including ET, FTAI and BBSE’s), nutrition and production

- Equine reproduction (including AI’s), dentals and medicine

- Small animal behaviour

- Wildlife work (including Crocodiles and Cassowaries)

- Remote Indigenous Community work on Cape York

Tropical Vets are also seeking new graduates wanting to start out in a job where they will be supported via our ‘New Graduate Program’. Our new graduate program includes monthly zoom hook ups within Tropical Vet Services to discuss cases or particular topics, tutorials with visiting specialists and when time allows days out on farm doing routine horse or cattle procedures.

We do have specialists that work with us so we can offer internal referrals for those cases that need it and North Queensland is blessed with travelling specialists in Dermatology, Cardiology, Ophthalmology and Surgery that visit the region for those extra tricky cases.

Salary will be well above award and is negotiable. Afterhours on call work is part of the job but you will be well compensated for it (including working a 4-day week each week). We will also assist with relocation costs to make your move North more affordable.

For further information, or to apply please send a covering letter and your resume to or phone 0491 202 898. 





For best health, animals in the Tropical North need to be vaccinated...

Do you sometimes wonder if there’s an easier way to remember the timing of your pet’s vaccinations, worming treatment and tick / flea prevention?

Free up your mind for more exciting things by being in the Tropical Vet Services database!
We’ll send out reminders for your upcoming appointments and all of their ongoing health care needs, in the way that you prefer… text? Easy! Email? No worries! 

Have a chat with us at your next appointment, or call us today, to make sure your animal and contact details are current... and that they are fully vaccination-protected for their age and situation.



...An important message about COVID-19...


Your local vet, Tropical Vet Services, has always taken the health of our clients (and naturally, their animals!), employees, visitors and community seriously.

We understand this is a very difficult and stressful time for everybody but for Tropical Vet Services to continue our care for your animals; for their regular or emergency surgery, to be available after-hours as well as our professional care day to day at each clinic, we need to take care of our veterinarian and nurse staff, too!

The risk: if a staff member is diagnosed with COVID-19 then our clinic would be put into quarantine and this would prevent us from providing any care to our patients from this clinic.


In the interest of public health, we ask that you please do not enter our clinic if:

  • You have returned from an interstate hotspot or overseas within the last 14 days.
  • You have knowingly been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with Coronavirus (COVID-19) or has returned from an interstate hotspot or overseas within the last 14 days; or
  • You have a fever or flu-like symptoms.

If you are feeling unwell, or to better protect your health, do not wish to enter our clinic, PLEASE let us know over the phone as you make your appointment, so we can make arrangements to meet you at your car / in the car park.

We still want to see, treat and care for your pet; it just means we need to take some extra precautions.

We can also discuss consultation options for any existing clients that have been quarantined or are high risk.

By all working together we WILL be able to continue to offer you the top quality care you are accustomed to from our family-run business.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
