With many years of veterinary experience, we have become an employer and practice of choice and Telstra Small Business Awards SA 2013 & 2015 Finalists. We were the recipients of the Australian Veterinary Associations coveted Small Animal Practice of Excellence in 2015.

Are You:

A – A New or Recent Graduate?

Our new /recent graduate induction plan will help you practice with confidence and settle in to practice life smoothly. We have some very experienced veterinarians that will provide mentorship and support for your early years as a vet. For further information please email us at


B – An Experienced All-rounder?

If you don’t have any special interest areas that’s fine. If you are keen to join an innovative practice that is about to launch another suite of services that will greatly enhance small animal recovery and quality of life then we may be the practice for you.

Do You Have A Special Interest in Feline Medicine, Surgery, Canine Rehabilitation or Radiology?

We are keen to talk to veterinarians with a special interest in feline medicine, surgery, canine rehabilitation and radiology as well as all-rounders.

We are currently offering a 4-Year Working Scholarship in Diagnostic Radiology. For further details visit

Opportunities exist for further training and study in these areas as we develop special interest areas within the practice. We are an ISFM Gold Cat Accredited Hospital at Pet Universe Broadview.

Dr Oberle’s thoughts on the main benefits of working at Pet Universe:

“I would stress that our nurses are highly qualified as I feel this is a huge benefit to us as vets. I would also mention that the environment is very supportive and although every vet will have primary case responsibility, there is always another doctor around to confer with, if needed. I feel this is one of the best aspects of Pet Universe and one of the most valuable both for us as vets and for our clients. Even now after 9 years with PU, the supportive work environment is still extremely important and my job satisfaction depends on it. Most of the staff members get along so well that we will plan social events with each other which creates more of a friendly and “family” atmosphere.”

Dr. Kat Oberle, D.V.M.

What Does Pet Universe Stand For?

We believe in offering the very best healthcare in an innovative, professional, caring, enjoyable, consistent and value-for-money way. That’s why all our wellness procedures are designed to be affordable without compromising our standards so all routine procedures include pre-G.A.s and I.V. fluids capnography and blood pressure monitoring as standard. In addition, our standard consults are 20 minutes long or 30 minutes for new clients. This enables us to promote our unique features including Fear Free techniques for all our patients which falls in line with our Cat Friendly Gold Accreditation. We have a large number of qualified veterinary nurses and dedicated Client Relations team members. We were the first Practice in Adelaide to offer Kitten Kindy, one of the few to offer acupuncture and the first hospital to offer Medivets’ Stem Cell Therapy. We have performed over 50 stem cell treatments on cats and dogs and the results are outstanding. Lastly, we have some really great clients who want to do the best for their pets and say “Yes” to our treatment recommendations.

So How Do We All Stay In Touch?

Dr Chris Lee runs fortnightly vet meetings where both clinical and non-clinical issues are discussed in an informal setting. All the team get together once a month for a three-hour Practice Meeting on a Wednesday afternoon from 1- 4 p.m. to receive Practice updates, clinical updates and training sessions on a number of different topics. Socially, there always seems to be something going on with many of the team catching up outside of work to play squash, go scuba diving, fishing or relaxing at the pub.
