Opportunities at Donview


An excellent opportunity and an ideal position for the right candidate.


"Donview is a true mixed practice, allowing you to utilise the knowledge gained at University; everyone does everything!  We have high clinical standards with a full array of diagnostics. We are given excellent rota and work life balance. We get great back up and support from the directors."

Nial O'Rourke MRCVS

"Donview has been an incredible practice to work in! I couldn't have asked for more support from the directors and from the rest of my colleagues - we have a really young, friendly, fun and supportive team.
For a mixed practice I think we perform a really high standard of small and large animal medicine, with support from referral practices down the road, but enough cases are kept in  to work up complex cases and hone surgical skills."

Jen Rowland MRCVS

"We have a great Rota; allowing for a good work life balance. There is a Friendly, relaxed and supportive atmosphere at Donview and it is truly a mixed practice - the rota is for all 3 elements allowing a fair split. However, we are also given opportunities to expand in a particular area if we want."
Katie James MRCVS

Mixed practice at a high level

Many mixed practices in the UK are traditional country vets, perhaps struggling to keep up the ever changing worlds of farm, small animal and equine practice.

However at Donview we approach mixed practice as a specialism in its own right. We are forwarding our practice in each of these three disciplines rather than leaving one of two of them behind.

This results in excellent animal care for all species and an excellent opportunity for new graduates to gain the experience they deserve.

For example we are working with some of the large UK pig companies and have made some major advances in the care of pigs in the North East of Scotland whilst continuing to supply a service of excellence for cattle and sheep.

On the equine side we have an equine specialist, Mike Burrell with many years of high level equine experience to continue to the care for horses to the level of excellence we aspire to.

The small animals are receiving excellent care at the level of high end small animal practices in a mixed practice environment – we have taken on a number of specialists including an eye specialist and a physiotherapist. We have a highly qualified support staff team. In a profession in which a large proportion of the nursing care is undertaken by student nurses we have one of the most qualified nursing teams in Scotland. We have therefore managed to maintain the ethos of mixed practice but we are continuously improving in each field offering excellence of animal care for all species.
