For over 45 years, Veterinary Healthcare Clinic has served a longstanding clientele within the greater Paragould-Jonesboro community. As we continue to grow, we are now positioned to welcome an Associate Veterinarian and round out our 3-DVM team. Many of our patients are small animals, but we are happy to see large animals too (currently 10% of our caseload). Please note however, large animal interest is not necessary, only a plus!
We are proud of our modern, freestanding facility – newly built in 2007 with over 5,000 square feet. Though we are located less than 30 minutes from Jonesboro, Arkansas, we also pride ourselves on our small-town friendliness. We offer a wide range of services including soft-tissue surgery, dentistry, urgent care, and preventive/wellness exams. To assist in providing the best care possible, we utilize a variety of tools and equipment including ultrasound, digital radiography, in-house Idexx lab (ProCyte, Catalyst DX, SnapPro, and Sedivue), Tonopen, and a fully stocked pharmacy.
For those interested in large animals, we see equine, bovine, swine, and some porcine patients. Services range from routine health certificates and wellness care to Coggins testing and the occasional radiograph/ultrasound. Farm calls are scheduled three afternoons each week.
Our ideal candidate would be ready to join a fast-paced environment! With two tenured clinicians and nearly 60 years of combined experience, we are excited to offer mentorship and support. We would also welcome a seasoned veterinarian and any niche interests. Small animal medicine is the focus, but large animal interests are welcomed! Our goal is to continue operating in a positive working atmosphere with wholesome values.
Must be a licensed DVM (or have the ability to become licensed) in the state of Arkansas.

About Veterinary Healthcare Clinic
Blue River PetCare's mission is to provide a long-term home for local practices that selling owners have worked so hard to build. We are dedicated to retaining the culture of each of our hospitals in addition to the local practice of medicine. We do this by ensuring each hospital has complete medical autonomy with their choice of protocols, therapies, inventory items, vendors and even management software. We also focus on our employees’ health and well-being as much as we do the pets we treat. We would love to hear from you!
