Veterinarians are always very welcome visitors, to give some support to PACS’ nurses, especially regarding the care of the In Patients. Vets opinions on cases are always valued, but we would like to advise our visiting vets that there are particular quirks in this environment, and PACS has several protocols in place regarding treatment of particular conditions. You will be amazed at the speed with which these animals can heal from conditions that you would be shocked to see at home. 

Surgical help is always appreciated, especially for neutering, but sometimes for amputations or enucleations. Vets must, however, be registered to work in Thailand, which is why we are calling all Thai vets to try something new: have a world class holiday whilst using your skills to help the many stray animals that call this tropical paradise “home”. 

The number of government-planned culls on the island has decreased dramatically in the years since PACS’ opening {LINK TO ‘HISTORY’} and – with your help – we hope to eliminate them completely.  The more animals we neuter, the closer we can get to that goal! 

Volunteering as a vet at PACS requires at least 5 years of small animal clinical experience and you must be a confident, competent, experienced surgeon. This is not an appropriate placement for inexperienced veterinarians – if you have less than 5 years of experience, please apply for the Volunteer Nurse {LINK TO ‘VOLUNTEER NURSE’} position. If you are a veterinary student looking for work experience, please apply for the Clinic Assistant {LINK TO ‘Clinic Assistant’} position. 

There is a huge variety of beautiful places to stay, from a cliff-face balcony 10 minutes from the main party beach, to a secluded sunset view over the gulf of Thailand. There are excellent water sports, stunning beaches, beautiful hikes and amazing food and culture to enjoy. 

If you would like to visit PACS, please submit an application form {LINK TO ‘VOLUNTEER’} and a copy of your Resume.
