Fleas, ticks and your working dog – stop the uncomfortable itch

“Good sort farmers – on the whole the farmers we work with are really nice people and are often keen to give most of the treatments you suggest a go.”

“The ability to develop and grow trust and strong relationships with the farmers has been one of the most fulfilling things about working for Anexa. I feel part of this is personal, but I feel the farmers generally have been very easy to get onside from the get-go.”

“Attached lab and Cognosco!!! Think it’s one of the key qualities that sets Anexa apart from other businesses – allows for the use of best practise and up to date information to guide our clinical decisions. Ali and Yvette our Lab Technicians, are more than happy to talk to you about results or help teach which is really cool.”

“Mighty Waikato – anything you could want within an hour drive, if not less.”

“Progression of new grad skill set – constantly acquiring new skills and gaining clinical confidence. Good balance of getting help but also being pushed out of our comfort zone.”

“Support – big team with varied and lots of experience. We have enjoyed working out of the ‘hub’ clinic – feel very connected and really advantageous for learning small animal stuff. Also Friday afternoon catch ups is a nice way to lead into the weekend – chance to debrief and you get to chat to some of the team you might not normally have a lot to do with.”

“On call is something I don’t mind doing, I grew to resent it in my old job for a few reasons: The phone was directly through to me, the rota was a lot more frequent, and it was incorporated into the salary so felt like it was not worth anything”

“Having a large pool of vets is good in the sense that there is so many years of experience to draw on absolutely anything you come across so a great support network.”

“Dedicated CEO and leadership team that send out daily emails 😊  – feel as though everyone is approachable.”
