PAUL E. MENNICK DVM
After some extraordinary experiences in Australia and New Zealand the past few years, Dr. Mennick is now back in California full time. He has now worked for three of the four largest Standardbred breeding operations in the southern Hemisphere (all handling over 1000 mares annually), Widden Stud (1276 mares), and for Clive Palmer's private racing and breeding operation in Queensland.
In addition to fertility work at his facility, he is now also consulting for Crossroads Veterinary Hospital in Anderson (equine) and the new Valley Oak Veterinary Center in Chico (canine). We recommend email over the telephone, as the phone company was unwilling to replace aging landlines from the highway, cell service is spotty, and our microwave/internet system has its difficulties most afternoons.
Any colleague considering a veterinary position in Australia or New Zealand is welcome to contact me for a lot of helpful advice, tips, and suggestions with everything from airfares, luggage and Customs tips, obtaining visas and veterinary licenses, to employment contracts and pitfalls, recommended (and not so recommended) positions, job search resources, differences in medication, racetrack rules, costs of living, and all the subtle nuances of living and practicing in another country. Spanning 25 years, I have 6 seasons� experience in the two countries; some on short-stay, business visas, some on long-term, employment-sponsored visas, some as resident veterinarians for large breeding farms, some as associates in a practice. All discussions are in strict professional confidence, and I will ask you to prove your professional identity. My past experience should be immensely helpful, and I am currently working full time in Australia. Visitors welcome! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
