Comments Off on Health Considerations for Overseas Vets working in Australia
Q fever vaccination is recommended for all people who are working in, or intend to work in the veterinary field.
Q fever is caused by Coxiella burnetii, is a serious zoonotic disease in humans with a worldwide distribution. Many species of animals (commonly cattle, sheep, goats but also cats and dogs) are capable of transmitting C. burnetii, and consequently all veterinary staff are potentially at risk. Australia is the only country to have a licensed Q fever vaccine (QVax). Almost all, if not all, Australian veterinary graduates are vaccinated but overseas graduates, veterinary nurses and kennel staff should not be overlooked. The vaccine has been used in Australia for many years however still there are over 600 notifications across Australia annually.

This information includes the views and opinions of Kookaburra Veterinary Employment and is of a general nature only. Factual information is believed to be correct at the time of writing, however, should not be relied upon and any person should confirm details with the relevant authorities and through their own research prior to acting on any of the suggestions in this article.
We decided to include a question on gender in this year’s survey. 594 vets chose to answer either male or female. There was no intent to offend anyone by not including an option for a gender other than male or female; the question was optional and we were interested in whether pay rates vary specifically according to whether someone is male or female. When looking at the data, we excluded practice owners/partners, on the assumption that they wouldn’t show gender bias for or against themselves – although this may not actually be true.
The results show a difference of about $4 an hour in the median hourly rate for full time vets between males and females, which is 10%, and means a difference in the calculated annualised salary of $7,904. This difference persists in most categories of both experience, and number of years since graduation.
Comments Off on Medechat – Veterinary care, anytime, anywhere
The Medechat Telemedicine Platform was developed to help reduce a lot of the pressures encountered as a working vet or clinic owner and increase vet retention and recruitment.
Your vets can work flexibly and talk to clients from home or the surgery, perfect for triage, and general advice. Imagine being able to talk through a pets discharge with the owner at a quiet time during the day, making pick up time fast and stress free.
Payments are taken and invoices and treatment notes are sent automatically at the conclusion of the consultation saving clinic time as well. You can even write your scripts from within Medechat.
It’s not just vets that will love it. Pet owners will love the convenience of having access to professional advice when they need it, from their usual vet, that is stress free for them and their pets.
Take the pressure off your vets in clinic and after hours with VetCheck 24/7 through Medechat.
Even if your clinic is busy, your clients can access veterinary advice from a qualified, board certified VetCheck 24/7 Vet, meaning they don’t have to go to a different clinic. VetCheck 24/7 is like having extra vets on staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Practices can use this service to alleviate busy periods and offer out of hours advice without putting pressure on their own vets. Exam notes are sent back to you and you will be paid $25 for each referred consultation. All follow up work is also referred back to you.
Let your vets take Medechat appointments when it suits them or let your clients book a consult with a VetCheck 24/7 Vet.
