EMS & Work Experience at Larkmead


Larkmead Vets is a fiercely independent mixed practice based in South Oxfordshire with excellent links to the M4 and M40 and fast-track trains to London Paddington on our doorstep. We have 5 small animal practices and 2 large animal, providing an excellent 24 hour service to our clients. Our full hospital facilities allow for career development in a wide range of disciplines.

We can offer you a 2 week placement in either Small Animal EMS at our Cholsey or Didcot branches or Large Animal EMS at our Cholsey branch. Shared accommodation is sometimes available close to the Didcot branch (subject to availability). 

Our busy practices can offer the opportunity to work alongside experienced and knowledgable vets covering a wide variety of cases and species.  We will work with you to help achieve your learning objectives and offer feedback on your time with us.  We are a friendly and welcoming team and look forward to meeting you!
