New Zealand vet erases ‘parenting’ comment

A New Zealand veterinarian looking for an internal medicine resident edited a help-wanted advertisement that stated the position would not suit “someone who plans to take long periods of time off for parenting.” Clinic owner Mark Robson, BVSc, DACVIM, deleted the offending line on the New Zealand Veterinary Association jobs web page. Left in place was the statement that “strong preference will be given to applicants who are intending to stay in Auckland long-term.”
