Two Feet Four Paws is looking for an experienced veterinarian to join our expanding team in Dubai, UAE.

Dubai is a growing, liberal city in the Middle East. It is centrally positioned with equal travel times to Asia and Europe and a great hub for globetrotting. It has the shopping, nightlife and restaurants of any international city but also the benefit of beaches, desert camping and the climate for an outdoor lifestyle. It almost never rains!
Two Feet Four Paws has two branches (Dubai Land and Palm Jumeirah) that deal with small animal and exotic pets.

We are a close team of 5 vets, 7 nurses (qualified and assistant) and 6 support staff with a cooperative goal of high-quality medicine / surgery and customer care.  The Hospital is well equipped with all the usual toys, including everything needed to perform high quality medicine and surgery on exotics.

The position would suit a veterinarian with at least 5 years’ combined experience in exotics/small animal / zoological work. A postgraduate qualification in Zoological Medicine such as a Certificate or MSc (WAH) would be favorable.
Base salary is 30,000AED per month (tax free) with production based bonus. There is a 5 day working week with some weekend work.  One month Annual leave with return flights and 5 days CPD leave with allowance provided.
