“I worked at Mount Hutton Veterinary Clinic as a locum vet earlier this year.  The clinic was busy with a varied case load and was an awesome learning experience.  All the staff were incredibly helpful and supportive – all I had to do was ask and somebody would gladly help me find an answer regardless of the question. All the vets were incredibly knowledgeable and were willing to share this knowledge amongst each other if a difficult case came in.  I can highly recommend Mount Hutton Pet Hospital as a workplace and would gladly take a job here if I was looking at permanent work in the Newcastle area.”  Kylie Thurlow, May 2019
