Small animal practice established in 1996, privately owned and community loved
The hospital is located in a beautiful semi-rural area that offers abundant outdoor recreation, cultural events and entertainment, and affordable housing and land.
Brand new beautiful free-standing hospital with lots of natural light throughout and spacious work areas
Compensation 90-120k, including generous PTO, all professional licenses and dues, uniform allowance, medical insurance, CE allowance plus additional paid-time-off to attend, matched funding for retirement fund, discounted goods & services for doctor-owned pets, and production bonuses
Congenial, communicative, and supportive environment among the entire staff
Patient-driven approach to medicine with no "one size fits all" mandate
Wide-ranging medical and surgical caseload, with specialists close enough for referral when needed, but plenty of opportunity to manage more complex cases in house
Overall philosophy of helpfulness and kindness extended to the clients and patients and amongst co-workers has created an enviable culture at this hospital- by many accounts, a "unicorn" in the modern veterinary community.
This is a great practice if you want to be mentored. It is a fantastic place to work as an experienced doctor wanting to be valued, supported and part of a collaborative and cooperative team of professionals (doctors and support staff).
