We would like someone who is willing to see/treat large animals and horses.  They only comprise about 10% of our patient base but as an ethical and moral consideration, we feel that if a patient is compromised, we have a duty to provide assistance. 

We do, however, have a strict Hendra vaccination policy pertaining to horses – you don’t have to vaccinate, we don’t have to treat!
