Private practices are needed now, more than ever, to keep quality veterinary care at reasonable cost. As a private practice, we are not saddled with the expense of layers of corporate management, and investors, who are not directly involved with patient, client, and employee care. Because of that, our prices for services can remain at a level that out clients can afford, and still supply our employees with good salaries and benefits. If you know the value of a private practice, then please join us. There is buy-in potential to give you a good future investment, even if you have heavy student debt. Our goal is to help our doctors and employees enjoy a good and satisfying work life by offering a vital, and much appreciated, service to our community.
You are welcome to our comfortably busy small animal practice. Our full-time doctors enjoy a 4 day work week, with a half day Saturdays once per month. Part-time hours are quite flexible as well. You have plenty of time off available for vacations, family events, and continuing ed. We have a nearby emergency and referral center for after hours emergencies, with daytime critical care, surgery, and internal medicine specialists. In joining our practice you will have a very good QOL professionally, and time to enjoy your life outside of work. Salary and benefits are competitive
We appreciate an interest/skill in any of the following: internal medicine, surgery, ultrasound, feline medicine, physical therapy, canine sports medicine, acupuncture, or integrative/holistic modalities. If you have an interest in pocket pets, birds, wildlife, or exotics we are open to adding other species to our practice. We work with the local shelters, the humane society, and rescues.
Our staff members are dedicated skilled, and love working with our patients and clients. We are much appreciated by the community and they refer new clients to us regularly. That's why we need you to join us in all the good work we do for the animals in our area.
