One of the most populous metropolitan areas in the United States, Fairfield County is an ideal community with unmatched neighborhoods, amazing beaches, a diversity of parks and green spaces, as well as diverse opportunities for recreational activities. Shelton is a place where you can opt for a tranquil lifestyle or for a more vibrant and active one. Traditional homes, impressive architecture, modern communities, and historic landmarks are just a few of the wonders and riches that Fairfield County hides.
The Associate Veterinarian is responsible medical, surgical and dental procedures performed in the hospital, along with maintaining complete and accurate medical records of our patients. This candidate will be helping to continue to deliver the highest standards of the practice, as it relates to the quality of medicine for our patients.
Our Community (besides being awesome)
Countryside Veterinary Hospital is a part of Community Veterinary Partners. We embrace unique and empower local medicine. CVP supports and loves to high-five the team here at Countryside as we work hard to provide exceptional care to the pets in the Fairfield community.
We’re a growing community of veterinary care professionals united by our mission of bringing joy to families by providing the best care possible for the pets they love. We’ve been around since 2009 and are wildly passionate about pets and people.
A few of our guiding principles are:
Vets are vets
Our veterinarians are the experts, and we leave every medical decision in the hands of the people who know their patients best.
The CVP Hospital Investment Program (CHIP) gives CVP veterinarians and practice managers opportunities to invest directly in what they're building, so you can reap even more rewards of our whole community's growth.
Find a mentor, be a mentor
Pet people never stop learning (or sharing what they've learned about the animals they love). Our Mentorship Program was designed to guide and inspire veterinarians through all stages of their career, as a mentee or a mentor.
Take care of pets, be taken care of
When people thrive, pets thrive. In addition to the essential benefits (health, dental, optical) we have flexible compensation packages, true paid time off with no negative accrual, paid parental leave, and round-the-clock access to free mental health support.
Have more questions?
It’s hard to cram everything in a job listing and you might have more questions. We’d love to meet you. Our recruiters are great listeners, brilliant clinic matchers, and even better humans. Whether it’s this practice or one of the other 100+ clinics in our community, we’d love to have the privilege of empowering you to practice the pet care you want, the way you want, where you want.
CVP believes our job is to bring joy to families by caring for the pets they love. We know that when veterinary professionals have what they need to thrive, pets thrive too. That’s what CVP is all about: building a community that provides extraordinary care for all its members, no matter how many legs (or wings) they may have. CVP knows what's important to people and making sure they have what they need so they can focus on delivering great care is our priority. At the end of the day, we’re more than just pet people. We’re pet people people.
