Nicollet Veterinary Clinic (NVC) is seeking a full-time veterinarian to join our team. The ideal candidate would be a team player who is passionate about caring for our patients, clients, and fellow team members. This is an energetic self-starter whose medicine and surgical skills and knowledge are complimented with the desire to improve the human/animal bond.
NVC is a full-service small animal veterinary clinic, serving southcentral Minnesota for over 60 years. Providing premium animal healthcare supports our mission to bolster the special bond between our clients and their pets. NVC provides top notch veterinary care by utilizing state-of-the art diagnostic and treatment tools including Heska’s in-house analyzers (CBC, chems, T4, cortisol, etc), therapeutic laser, VetPro dental drill, and digital dental x-ray.
NVC is currently staffed by four DVM’s. We are hiring to replace a retiring doctor. Whether a new graduate or experienced vet, you would be joining a team of doctors eager to mentor you. All doctors rotate between surgery and appointments. Further, doctors are encouraged to pursue their own special interests which has led to significant growth of the service offerings listed below.
Our doctors are supported by eight experienced Certified Veterinary Technicians that are the "life blood" of our clinic and will ensure an easy transition for any new veterinarian if you let them "be your guide". CVT's perform many tech-only appointments, freeing doctors of basic need visits.
NVC is a close-knit team of coworkers who enjoy their jobs, interacting with patients and each other! While providing quality care is our top priority, at NVC we strive for empathy and enjoy getting to know pet owners in an informal, personal setting. We hope to offer help and guidance to make every pet home a forever home.
